Making a List and Checking it Twice
Wednesday, January 6, 2016

There is something to be said about lists. They can help sort one group from another, such as the infamous naughty and nice list. They can also be used to remember things, such as your shopping or gift list, or to prioritize your holiday tasks to complete. While these types of lists may help this holiday season, what lists are you making that will help your business promote safety and compliance in 2016? Here are a couple suggestions to get your started.
Have a list of…
- Dates you will hold your monthly safety training sessions
- Toolbox talk topics for your weekly huddles
- Tools and equipment requiring routine inspection and inspection protocol for each
- Certifications that may expire which need to be renewed
- Refresher courses for veteran technicians
- Items that should be on your routine jobsite safety inspection report
- Regulations that apply to your specific lines of business and operations performed
- Jobsites where fall hazards exist with a fall protection plan for each in writing
- Standard operating procedures
- Work related accidents or injuries on an OSHA 300 log posted as required
As you ring in the New Year, my hope for you is that 2016 is not only the most profitable year for you but also the safest one - 100% free from accident or injury. Cheers to you and your lists!
