Work Environment Safety Tips

November 10, 2020

Being safe in your workplace is not limited to only those operating dangerous machines. Even with proper PPE, walking through a hazardous site can still incur risk if you aren’t aware of your surroundings. In any plant, manufacturing, or warehouse environment, basic violations are more serious than they seem such as; leaning over railings, standing on tops of ladders/tall equipment, being harnessed in correctly, and keeping other employees in check.

Our safety expert, Adam Moore encourages these extra precautions as well:

  1. Stay off your cell phone when walking
  2. Never walk into barricaded areas or restricted parts of the worksite
  3. Avoid walking into areas with work being performed overhead
  4. Listening, communicate, and always being aware of your surroundings

There are constant minor and serious injuries due to cutting corners and not listening to precautions regarding basic workplace safety. The best way to stay safe is to always be briefed on how to conduct yourself on the worksite and with equipment. Abide by all rules, as they are only in your best interest. Wearing proper PPE and knowing the safety hazards around you will keep yourself and others safe.
