WEEKLY ACCIDENT REVIEW

  • The week of July 1, 2013 We reported no new injuries. We completed the entire month of June without any injuries! Lets's get through the rest of summer in the same fashion. Terrific job everyone, please keep up the good work!

WEEKLY TOPIC

  • Safety is everyone's responsibility! As an employee you should:

    - Learn to work safely and take all rules seriously

    - Recognize hazards and avoid them

    - Report all accidents, injuries, and illnesses to your supervisor immediately

    - Inspect tools prior to use to avoid injury

    - Wear all assigned PPE

    On the other hand, it's management's responsibility to:

    - Provide a safe and healthful workplace

    - Provide personal protective equipment

    - Train employees in safe procedures and in how to identify hazards

  • Everyone must be aware of potential hazards on the job:

    - Poor housekeeping results in slips, trips, falls

    - Electricity can cause shocks, burns, or fire if not handled properly

    - Poor material handling may cause back problems or other injuries

    - Tools and equipment can cause injuries if guards or protective devices are disengaged

    Always use the protections that are provided on the job:

    - Guards on machines and tools keep body parts from contacting moving equipment

    - Insulation on electrical equipment prevents shocks, burns, and fire

    - Lockout/Tagout assures equipment is de-energized before it is repaired

    - Personal protective equipment shields your body from hazards you may face on the job

  • In case of emergency:

    - Understand alarms and evacuation routes

    - Know how to notify emergency response personnel

    - Implement a procedure for leaving the scene safely so emergency personnel can do their job

    - Wipe up spills promptly and correctly

  • Safety benefits everyone. With fewer injuries, a business can be more productive and profitable. By incorporating safety rules, employees avoid injury as well as illness from exposure to hazardous substances.
