At AurStaff, we take safety in the workplace seriously. In fact, candidates are required to complete an interactive safety program as part of their initial assessment.

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.


Safety tip of the month

Review Your Response to Emergencies

A disaster can strike your organization at any moment-fire, weather, or even workplace violence. Once you've overcome it, you may slip back into a "business as usual" mode, but that can be almost as dangerous. Follow this three-step plan to improve your safety preparations:

  • Review your response.Look back at a recent emergency situation and assess what worked well and what didn't in terms of your response. Ask people within your organization: What were the goals of our crisis response efforts? Did we achieve them? What were the values that we communicated by our response? What did we do well in terms of communication? What should we have done better?
  • Design an improved response. Use the answers gathered above to design an improved crisis response effort. Consider such possibilities as fire, power outages, severe weather, or any comparable crisis that puts your community on high alert, as well as the potential for a direct attack on your workplace or organization. Once you've created the plan, be sure to communicate it throughout the workforce at regular intervals so that everyone knows what to do, or where to find guidance, as soon as an emergency strikes.
  • Redesign your work processes. As you redesign your crisis plan, proactively rethink how your organization performs work. Do people really need to be at the office all day every day to be productive? How much travel is really necessary? Gather data, make recommendations, and then implement new ideas on a trial basis. The end result may very well be a new workplace where things get done smarter, faster, and cheaper.
