Here are a few simple suggestions from OSHA that you can follow to make a difference in your employee’s perception of safety:
- Create a board for workers to display suggestions to help find and fix workplace hazards.
- Hold a demonstration on proper use of safety equipment.
- Host an informal “lunch and learn” on a part of your safety program.
- Recognize a safety milestone and employee contributions with a party.
One of the most effective ways to promote safety year-round is to make a “why I work safely” board with pictures of your employee’s loved ones. We will be sharing extra Toolbox Talks during Safe + Sound Week about the importance of hearing conservation and the proper fit of hearing protection. Take a few extra minutes during Safe + Sound Week to promote safety and health (at home, too).
IAMU has created two Toolbox Talks on workplace hearing issues. Workplace hearing loss is one of the most common work-related injuries. You can download the Toolbox Talks by clicking here.
From Lessons Learned and Toolbox Talks to webinars and workshops – we make every effort to make safety easier for you. If you have a safety suggestion, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org so that it can be shared. If you observe Safe + Sound Week in any way, please share what you did with us by sending a message to email@example.com. IAMU will be providing appreciation gifts to all those who participate.
