With the help of OSHA, the National Safety Council and Arbill, your workplace injury rates have been steadily decreasing. Does your responsibility end there?
Happy New Year everyone! We hope that you all had a fun and safe New Year’s Eve and that you are ready to work together to create a culture of safety within your organization for 2013.
Welcome back to another safe work week and a day away from a new Safer work year.
In the past four decades since OSHA's inception, there has been a dramatic effect on workplace safety. Worker injuries and deaths are down significantly - from approximately 38 worker deaths a day in 1970 to 13 a day in 2011.
A shocking one in six of all lost-time work injuries result from slips, trips and falls. Nearly 65 percent of these are same-level falls. With the goal of protecting the worker from harmful events such as dangerous falls, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) developed regulations that every employer must know and comply with.
Happy Friday! This week we are discussing motivating employees to be safe. We found that open communication and including employees in safety decisions will bring about the desired results. Today we will discuss the motivation for leaders to want to improve safety.
