Clients are encouraged to implement company wide safety programs and candidates are trained to be keenly aware of safety procedures and policies at their place of work.

Most work related injuries are preventable. Take a look at the following links to obtain important information on emergency procedures and helpful tips on how to stay healthy in the workplace.

Remember These for Your Next Safety Meeting

Regular safety meetings demonstrate to your employees the importance you and your organization place on safety. But to work, safety meetings have to address real issues and tackle them seriously. Here are some pointers:

  • Be short and specific. Find out what supervisors and workers did to avoid accidents and eliminate (or at least decrease) risks.
  • Ask questions. This is your best opportunity to find out what works and what doesn't from the people who deal with safety issues every day. Ask for input and feedback on how their jobs can be made safer.
  • Answer questions. Always allocate time on your agenda for discussion and Q&A. If you don't have an answer, of course, say so—but then find out and communicate it to the group. This further demonstrates your commitment to safety.
  • Provide a handout. Always give the team something to take away with them. Even a one-page list of reminders they can post and refer to will help anchor your safety message in employees' minds.
