Weekly Safety Tip
Job/Task Planning (7/26)
Do your employees understand how to safely and properly plan their work? As we investigate good catches, near misses, incidents and accidents, one of the common contributing factors is lack of proper planning. When planning is overlooked, safety, quality, and production will not succeed efficiently and effectively. There are numerous safety planning resources, but they only work when properly implemented. The more employees who are trained to competently utilize the planning program the more successful they will be at completing their work in a safe and timely manner. When is the last time you trained your employees on your job/ task planning program? Do they understand the benefits of proper implementation? Don’t devalue proper job/task planning. If you need support or help developing a job/task planning program or training and motivating employees to implement planning policies you already have in place, give us a call today.
Emergency Preparedness (7/19)
Have you conducted a #safety #emergencyprepardnessdrill at home or work lately? Do you know what is expected of you in the event of an emergency? Is your team or family prepared for the next one? Emergencies come in the form of weather, people (injuries, accidents, health conditions etc.), terrorist attacks, pandemics, chemical spills/releases, etc. When we are prepared, we reduce fear, anxiety, the potential losses. Prepared responders are those that know what and when to act in an emergencies to reduce the losses in the workplace, community and their families. If you need help developing and/or implementing an emergency preparedness drill, give us a call today.
World Class Safety (7/12)
Have you engaged a fellow colleague about safety today? We often hear the words “world class safety”. Are these words just about the safety numbers? Here at The Inspector’s Gadgets Inc. we believe that “world class safety” goes beyond the safety performance numbers of an organization. Though safety performance numbers are a way to measure the program, it is not the end to #worldclasssafety. In order to achieve your highest level of results, each individual must continually engage their colleagues about safety and what it means to their families, the organization, the public etc. #challenge Take 5 minutes today and engage a fellow colleague about safety. If your organization needs help developing and/or administering a safety program that engages employees today, please give us a call. We would love to help.
