Please remember to work safely around machinery with moving parts. Keep all loose clothing or dangling objects away from moving parts by restraining them. It’s so easy for anything loose to get caught in moving parts. The results can be catastrophic.
WOW! Where did 2019 go? The year happened so fast and now it is day 2 of a new year. This is a new year, a new opportunity to be purposeful in your life... your work life as well as your personal life. Today I am sharing Workplace Fatalities by the Numbers from the National Safety Council, of which I am a member. Think about safety in 2020. Be purposeful with your thoughts and actions related to safety. It could make the difference of life for you. I wish you a safe, healthy and prosperous 2020!

What are you doing to celebrate safety at your facility? Many facilities will host coloring contests to promote safety at home for employee family members. Some companies will sponsor scavenger hunts. Take the opportunity to put a spotlight on safety at your facility each week for National Safety Month, then carry it on through out the year. Keep safe!
And so it begins...
day 2 of 2. I hope today is as interesting as yesterday. The BWC arranged for great speakers yesterday and the first presentation this morning’s topic is “Is Marijuana Medicine “. I am looking forward to learning more information to incorporate into my drug free workplace training.
I always enjoy the people in our safety training classes. I had a few familiar faces join the OSHA Construction 10 hour class as a refresher course. They work for a company that is very safety conscious. This class was a nice mix of people new to construction and a few seasoned employees. Seasoned employees usually have great experiences to share. This sharing is so importance to everyone. It makes the class more interesting and personal. Hats off to the wonderful group of guys in attendance 3/18 & 3/19!
