The arrival of Spring means business picks back up for companies whose work tends to be outdoors. This is a great time of year to perform a safety audit, to be sure everything is in great working order before heading out.
We know each industry has its own safety concerns, but there are a few areas that tend to be pretty standard.
First, let’s talk visibility. Do your employees wear high visibility gear? If so, take some time to be sure this gear is still bright and vibrant. It’s essential they are able to be seen easily at all times while on the job.
Do you have plenty of glasses, face shields, and/or ear plugs on hand and readily available? Often it's easy to slack off when it comes to protecting our eyes and ears, but this is so important. Take every precaution to protect your hearing and vision for the long term!
Do you have First Aid Kits available, and well-stocked at your place of business, in all vehicles, and on work sites? Sometimes these kits are slowly depleted, and you won’t realize it until you’re in need of an important item. Check your kits today, and replenish anything that may come in handy down the line.
As usual, if you are unsure of what you need, please give us a call. We’re here to help!
