Resolution (n) [rez-uh-loo-shuh n]; a firm decision to do or not to do something.
For many, the new year brings resolutions. Perhaps a focus on eating healthier, reducing stress, travel, save money, or reading books. The idea of a resolution is to improve one’s well-being and this ties in to our daily life at home and work. By resolving to improve safety at our workplace, we are ensuring our well-being as well as those around us.
In an effort to make those resolutions, here are some suggestions:
Participate in Safety and Encourage Others
- Make suggestions on how we can improve safety within our organization.
- Speak up if you see something that is not safe for you or your co-workers.
- Ask questions; if you are unsure about a safety matter, ask.
- If there is a safety committee at your location or project, get involved.
- Review safety policies or post orders.
- If you have the Safety Handbook, keep it with you as a reference.
- Complete any safety training.
- Inspect your personal protective equipment.
- Do you need to replace your high visibility vest, safety glasses or other PPE?
- Are the boots/shoes you are wearing effective for your environment?
- Focus on the task at hand.
- Do not use a cell phone while operating a motor vehicle, or simply walking down the stairs.
- Proper nutrition is essential to cognition; focus on foods that feed your mind and your body.
There are many resolutions you can make for 2018, both at home and work, the key is to stay focused and not abandon them.
