10 WAYS TO GET A SAFETY AND HEALTH PROGRAM STARTED

If you are not quite ready to implement a complete safety and health program, here are some simple steps you can take to get started. Completing these steps will give you a solid base from which to take on some of the more structured actions you may want to include in your program.

Establish safety and health as a core value . Tell your workers that making sure they finish the day and go home safely is the way you do business.

Lead by example . Practice safe behaviors yourself and make safety part of your daily conversations with workers.


MAKING SAFETY PERSONAL

Try one of the following activities at safety meetings or any workplace gatherings throughout the year. These engaging activities can increase participation in safety and health programs by getting managers and workers thinking about and discussing what safety on the job means to them.

Why Safety Matters . Initiate conversations about safety by offering employees ways to think about motivations for contributing to a safe and healthy workplace.

Framing Safety . Begin framing safety conversations by asking employees to share a photo depicting why it’s important for them to come home safely from work each day.

Safeguarding Equipment and Protecting Employees from Amputations
Amputations are among the most severe and disabling workplace injuries that often result in permanent disability. These injuries result from the use and care of machines such as saws, presses, conveyors, and bending, rolling or shaping machines as well as from powered and non-powered hand tools, forklifts, doors, trash compactors and other equipment used for materials handling activities.

Anyone responsible for the operation, servicing and maintenance of machines and equipment — employers, employees, safety professionals and industrial hygienists—should read OSHA’s 60-page guide, Safeguarding Equipment and Protecting Employees from Amputations . Primary safeguarding, as outlined in this guide, includes control methods that protect employees from machine hazards through effective machine guarding techniques. In addition, a hazardous energy control (lockout/tagout) program needs to complement machine safeguarding methods in order to protect employees during potentially hazardous servicing and maintenance work activities.


The OSHA Training Institute Education Center is offering OSHA 2045-Machinery and Machine Guarding Standards at the following locations:


This 4 day course familiarizes students with various types of common machinery and their related safety standards, and the control of hazardous energy sources (lockout/tagout). The course presents an approach to machinery inspection that enables participants to recognize hazards and to provide options to achieve abatement, including those for mechanical motions and actions created by points of operation and other machinery processes. Includes practice on identifying and mitigating machinery hazards.
