Safety Stand Down is a voluntary event for employers to speak directly to employees regarding their safety culture of the organization they work for and general safety of their industry.
The holiday season has passed and the industry once again resumes. Turkey tummy, mistletoe day dreams and thinking of time spent with family and friends are all easy distractions from the task at hand and your work place. January is a time to stay sharp, alert and mindful of the duties you are about to perform. Safety is the number one priority, ensuring you and your coworkers go home safely at the end of each and every day.
Take the time to host tail gate meetings, practice safety drills, shut ins, man down, etc. Check your safety tickets, are any expiring soon? Stay diligent during your shift and report hazards and near misses daily.
There are no short cuts to safety!
