Weekly Toolbox Talk: War On Falls

The “War on Falls” was declared with only one thing in mind – to prevent injuries by eliminating fall exposures. Zero tolerance and suspensions are merely tools to deal with a violation after it occurs. The ultimate goal is eliminate the exposure in the first place. That can only be accomplished by each and every one of us understanding what is expected.

Weekly Toolbox Talk: Suspension Recap

This zero tolerance means that certain unsafe employee actions will automatically result in suspension from work. So that employees understand what these actions are that will result in suspension, we will recap the WAR ON FALLS safety violations that will result in a minimum two-day suspension.

Weekly Toolbox Talk: Slips, Trips and Falls

Slips, Trips and Falls (Fall Prevention)

We have all experienced slipping, tripping, stumbling or falling.  Usually the only result is that you feel silly, embarrassed, and perhaps got a scrape or bruise.  But falls kill 1,200 people at work a year.  They are the biggest cause of accidental death in the workplace. More than 33,000 people are disabled every year from falling down stairs, while many more people receive other injuries like strains, sprains, and fractures.
