Conduct these Safety Checkups This Quarter

As your workers’ compensation partner, we want to help ensure your workforce goes home safely at the end of the day. A safety program with regular inspections and observations minimizes workplace injuries, costly downtime, and lost productivity.

Our Safety OnDemand® service offers organized quarterly safety checkups to make it easy and efficient for you. Compiled by our team of risk management consultants, conduct these workplace safety checkups during the third quarter.

Incident Investigations – In an incident investigation, timing is everything. Over time, the ability to collect evidence and accurately determine what happened decreases. Therefore, investigating a workplace accident must start as soon as it is safe. Safety OnDemand has incident investigation resources available in Spanish and English and an online training tool. We’ve also developed a 5-part accident investigation blog series that details the steps you should take from the incident to the follow-up and recommendations.

Building Safety: Fire Extinguishers – Fire extinguishers can be found in many facilities and often save lives and property. But fires double in size every 60 seconds, so using an extinguisher incorrectly or at the wrong time can quickly cause injury or death. Learn about online training for fire extinguishers and the 3 P’s of fire extinguisher basics.

Housekeeping – Good housekeeping is one of the best preventative measures in the battle against injuries and emergencies. Housekeeping reduces hazards in the workplace and makes day-to-day operations safer for everyone. Check out this quick Safety OnDemand course on housekeeping and learn more about slips, trips and falls.

HazComm Webinar and Training – The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) standardizes how we communicate about chemical hazards in the workplace. OSHA has also adapted its Hazard Communication Standard to align with the GHS. Watch this training to find out what you need to know for your business.

Be sure to check back quarterly to see what safety checkups you can do to keep your safety program up-to-date and your workers safe.
