Monday, May 1st

Safety is the industry’s top value, and establishing a supportive culture is essential to creating a safe work environment. Feeling safe and having the power to speak up when we see something unsafe are important to our day-to-day well-being at work. Managers and workers must commit that they will use their Strong Voices to back each other up and make Safe Choices. Planning, communicating, observing, and improving are ways to stay stronger and safer together.

Risk Identification

We all face risks and make mistakes every day. Most of the time, risks or mistakes don’t cause us injury or harm, but on the job they can be significant. We can take three key steps to minimize exposure and harm: Knowing when we are placed in situations where errors are likely; being able to assess hazards; and identifying critical steps in our activities to make them safe. Open communication is key to having a stronger, safer workplace where we all look out for one another.

Brain Matters

The most effective tool we have is the one between our ears. Head protection has come a long way since the days of leather and canvas hard hats. Safety helmets are becoming more common and offer the most protection our industry has seen to date. If your company has not made the switch from a hard hat to a helmet, we ask that you consider it.
