Monthly Safety Tip: 

Control Your Wheels in Any Weather!

Accidents involving skidding or bad weather conditions are preventable. You are responsible for keeping your vehicle under control no matter what the road or weather. Bad weather doesn’t cause accidents. Weather conditions create driving hazards. It is up to you, the driver, to know how you deal with them.

Monthly Safety Tip: 

Get a Grip

Your workers’ hands are the tools of their trade. How well do they look after those tools? Without the right protection hands may get burned, frozen, cut or scraped. Workers could lose fingers, thumbs or even their lives. That’s why safety gloves were invented. But not everyone is getting the message.

Monthly Safety Tip: 

Oh, My Aching Head!

Headaches affect over 70 percent of adults. While most people just take an over-the-counter painkiller for a headache and “tough it out,” there are things to do to prevent headaches as well as stop the increase in accidents and decline in productivity caused by them. 

Monthly Safety Tip: 

If dehydration is suspected…

With mild to moderate dehydration from diarrhea, vomiting or fever, there can be improvement by drinking more water. Coffee, tea, and other caffeine containing beverages should be avoided.

Monthly Safety Tip: 

Remember to “Get a firm grip on the load, keep it close, bend at the knees, use your legs to lift the load, and keep your spine in the natural position.” These principles always apply and should be incorporated into every lift, if possible! Given the enormous number of “risky” lifting situations that you are faced with, you may not be able to apply these principles every time.

Monthly Safety Tip: 

In the joy and excitement of preparing for summer travel, keep the following preventive practices in mind!

Monthly Safety Tip: 

Good hygiene helps prevent the spread of bacteria that can cause illnesses and makes you a more pleasant person with which to associate.

Monthly Safety Tip: 

Did you know that even the most routine activities are potentially distracting while driving?  Distractions make drivers forget that their primary responsibility is to focus on driving and what is around them.

Monthly Safety Tip: 

It can happen in the blink of an eye. Every year, more than 100,000 North Americans permanently lose the sight in one or both eyes as a result of workplace eye injuries. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, direct and indirect costs for workplace eye injuries amount to almost $1 billion a year. A bureau survey found three out of five workers who suffered eye injuries had not been wearing eye protection. Of those who were, 40% wore the wrong kind. It’s estimated 90% of workplace eye injuries can be prevented by wearing approved protective eyewear.

Monthly Safety Tip: 

Fatigue  may cause drowsiness that, at any moment, may turn into complete sleep. Fatigue may produce a mental state that will deceive drivers into believing that they are capable of driving safely. Fatigue hampers the driver’s ability to correctly judge distances, speed or driving conditions. These circumstances can lead to a serious accident. 

Monthly Safety Tip: 

Housekeeping is a very important part of your job. Not only does it improve the overall appearance of your shop or work area, it shows that you take pride in where you work. The best way to keep your work place clean is to pick up after yourself! Don’t leave it for the next shift or another craft to worry about.
