Lifting Safety

In a large facilities department such as ours, lifting is very much a part of our everyday jobs. But because it is something we do so often throughout the day, we tend to do it in auto-mode, without thinking first about proper technique. Lifting incorrectly can result in a variety of injuries, with back strain being the most common. Using proper lifting techniques can save you today, as well as years down the road. Please see the FREAS SharePoint page under Safety for more information on this topic.

Bees and Wasps

Many bees and wasps become easily agitated during this time of year, and the number of reported stings actually increases in late August and September.
