Article by Jack Davis: THE LOW COST AND HIGH REWARDS OF SAFETY ON & OFF THE JOB
“Think Safety”, “Play it Safe”, “Zero Accidents” are slogans that many employees and certainly most safety directors hear when it comes to production and manufacturing. And while these words may almost be cliché, they still carry as much weight now as they ever did. Safety is not just a way of thinking. It is a way of being. A split second decision can be the difference between business as usual and an accident. Just like driving a car or playing a sport, practicing the fundamentals of safety pretty much applies to almost every activity we do on and off the job. As a plant manager, office director or safety coordinator, there is not much you can do to enforce good habits for staff members at home or out of work. But for on the job safety, you have full control. After all, accidents don’t only cause injuries, but they contribute to downtime, damage and worst of all; poor morale. Throw in issues with insurance premiums rising, government agency fines and an unsafe work environment and your problems can lead to an unproductive environment with an expensive piece of overhead. The best way to keep safety on the minds of your workers is to educate them with constant reminders. Alternating serious discussions on proper equipment, handling of machines, housekeeping and proper lifting along with light hearted and humorous messages will keep your staff on their toes. Posting banners and signs throughout the work place will make your message hard to ignore. It does not matter if your business is a heavy manufacturing facility, a restaurant or a hospital. There is always the risk for accidents and unsafe conditions in almost any setting. The type of organization you are in will dictate the frequency of safety meetings required. The best way to get your point across is with monthly or periodic safety meetings held in an area where either your entire workforce and attend or in group situations. Start off by discussing a couple of topics that make the most sense to your situation. If it is an office, reinforce the importance of keeping walkways clear of obstacles or making someone is responsible for keeping entry ways clear of ice in inclement weather. For a large manufacturing plant, discussion on hearing protection or use of tools would obviously be a good place to touch on. These meetings can be followed up by handing out reminders such as brochures, or promotional items that feature safety slogans. The messages can be generic or they can touch on the topics you have focused on for that day. Consider also handing out rewards to individuals and teams that have shown leadership in safety or have accomplished a zero accident environment for a lengthy period of time. Plenty of free materials are available to distribute. You can download safety certificates and posters, fill out and hand out to each company member that is a safety star. Remember, the cost and effort required to maintain a safe environment is a lot less expensive than the alternative. < a>
