Lifting Safely – Carrying

Each day in some form or fashion you do lifting in this facility and at home. Lifting safely is one the most important things you can do to protect your back throughout your lifetime. See the FREAS SharePoint page under Safety for more information on this topic and previous Weekly Safety Messages.

Managing Fatigue at the Workplace

Sleep loss built up slowly over several nights can be as harmful as sleep loss in one night. Both produce slower reaction times, failure to respond to changes, and the inability to concentrate and make reasonable judgments.

Ladder Safety

The American Ladder Institute (ALI) has identified March as National ladder Safety Month. This movement is dedicated to ladder safety awareness in an effort to decrease the number of ladder related injuries. Every year, over 100 people die in ladder accidents, and thousands more suffer disabling injuries. Every step matters. From a simple step stool to a large extension ladder, make sure you’re putting the right foot forward. 

Eye Safety

Each day about 2000 U.S. workers sustain a job related eye injury that requires treatment at a medical facility or emergency room. More than 100 of these injuries result in one or more days away from work. Wearing the proper PPE such as safety glasses, goggles, face shields or full face respirators will prevent eye injuries and related diseases. Please see the FREAS SharePoint page under Safety for more information on this topic.
