As your company’s Safety Manager, you’ve got a lot on your plate, and lots of lives at stake. Your fellow employees aren’t the only ones counting on you; their families and friends are counting on you, too, to help make sure their beloved comes home after their shift. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, roughly 13 workers lost their lives on the job every day in 2015, with nearly 8,000 workers injured each day.
Recognizing the magnitude of unsafe work conditions, industrial safety company Graphic Products has developed an easily digestible infographic — 10 Health and Safety Tips for Safety Managers — that lays out important statistics and provides tips for improving occupational safety.
How This Safety Infographic Can Enhance Workplace Safety
As the old adage goes, “safety is everyone’s responsibility,” and a brush-up on health and safety tips may be in order. Why not make it company-wide?
Designed as a safety training resource, this infographic visually explains the importance of mitigating hazards, preparing for the unexpected, keeping workers safe in emergencies, and meeting OSHA requirements. The 10 tips are likely a refresher for important safety tenets, such as performing a Job Hazard Analysis, keeping workplaces neat and organized, and keeping traffic flow safe with proper floor marking.
The infographic can be shared with co-workers to make a lasting impact on safety throughout your company.
How Visual Communication Throughout Your Facility Can Help
As OSHA states in its General Duty Clause, “Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees."
DuraLabel industrial label and sign printers help companies create and print clear, custom visual communication, and comply with numerous OSHA requirements. As pointed out in the infographic, visual communication can include arc flash labels informing employees about arc flash boundaries and PPE requirements, as well as floor signs improving warehouse traffic and keeping workers safe in heavily-trafficked areas. Resources like Graphic Products' free Floor Marking Guide help get the job done right the first time.
