Safe Work Conditions

Posted on September 17, 2008 @ 1:58 am

One of the biggest things that my uncle’s employer is concerned about it their safety.  Not only is being safe an essential thing on their job sites, but by being safe they are able to save a lot of money.  You see, he works in construction and though they try to be safe, accidents do happen that cost money and lives.

In an effort to reduce the number of injuries and create a safer work environment for their staff, they have made a point to purchase a new safety harness for each of their staff once per year.  Instead of relying on old equipment to fail, they are proactive and ensure that their equipment is in good condition.

They also attend workshops twice per year to ensure that they know the proper use of fall protection equipment.  Though my uncle grumbles about it sometimes, he knows that he is working at a place that cares that he is safe on his job which definitely makes him feel better about working there.
