What Can Hurt Me Today?

Asking yourself a critical question such as, “What can hurt me today?,” is a step that helps mitigate and prevent injury by assessing uncontrolled hazards before they become a problem. See the FREAS SharePoint page under Safety for more information on this topic and previous Weekly Safety Messages.

Dropped Objects

Dropped objects are a serious hazard at many worksites. Objects as small as a bolt can cause serious injury or even death when dropped from a higher level. Paying attention to the smaller hazards translates to safety improvement. See the FREAS SharePoint page under Safety for more information on this topic and previous Weekly Safety Messages.

Everyone is Responsible for the Culture

Culture is closely connected to safety on the job. When individuals choose to work safely and care about the well-being of each other, the culture can be strengthened. When a strong culture is in place, everyone reaps the benefit of working in a safer and more enjoyable workplace. See the FREAS SharePoint page under Safety for more information on this topic and previous Weekly Safety Messages.

Eating Habits

Our bodies work like machines and food is the equivalent of fuel. If you are consistently putting bad fuel in a machine, it will break down. See the FREAS SharePoint page under Safety for more information on this topic and previous Weekly Safety Messages.

Annual Checkups

It is human nature to be reactive instead of proactive in many aspects of life. Our health is one area where many people do not take steps to improve it until after a problem occurs. Going to your doctor for an annual checkup is an important part of a proactive approach to maintaining good health. See the FREAS SharePoint page under Safety for more information on this topic and previous Weekly Safety Messages.

However, with a little care and foresight, you can protect yourself from some of the more common New Year’s risks.
