Safety isn’t a seasonal thing

I read an article the other day focused on winter safety hazards and best ways to prepare for and avoid them. You know, things like tips to prevent falls when conditions are icy and how to prevent skids on slick roads; preventing frostbite; what to do if your vehicle gets stuck in the snow; the type of things you need to look for this time of year.

Each season has its own specific set of safety risks, but the bottom line is that safety – being safe, following safety procedures and always being aware of potential safety issues – should be a daily top-of-the-mind subject; especially in the workplace.

Safety in the workplace is not something that just happens; it is planned, implemented and practiced every day. It has to be for it to work. And every employee needs to take responsibility for it. It is a top priority, not something that can be placed on the back burner, not something that there’s no budget for or even an area where you can cut corners. People’s lives and livelihoods depend on it.

Safety is serious business. It doesn’t take a break for the holidays. Please keep it top of mind and have a happy, healthy and safe holiday season.
