At CORE, we strive to provide our members with the best support possible, and their clients the best possible results. But even more important than outcomes, safety is our top priority every day.
June is National Safety Month, which recognizes measures everyone can take to make the workplace and all places safer for our communities. It is a great opportunity for organizations to reevaluate their current practices and brainstorm new ways to make their team members safer every day.
Whether you are part of a larger company or organization or just an individual, there are many things you can do to make your life safer. By looking at your data and trends, increasing awareness around the spaces you inhabit, and listening to concerns coming from within you and your teams can help you improve safety in your life.
Do you notice more safety issues during the winter months from slippery conditions? Or do more accidents happen later in the week at your company? Looking at the data and trends surrounding safety concerns in your day-to-day life can help you identify trends and leading causes of these issues. Even if you don’t have this data readily available, National Safety Month could be a great opportunity to start collecting this data.
One of the easiest ways to identify safety issues is just by observing inconveniences in your everyday routines. These inconveniences, such as ducking under a low door frame, having to step around a puddle every day in a walkway, or obstacles that obstruct a clear path for walking could all be safety issues. While they might seem minor to some, these safety issues could pose a big threat to everyone involved.
Trusting your gut is always the best way to go about life. The same can be true with you and your peer’s safety. That nagging feeling in the back of your mind telling you, “That doesn’t feel quite right”, could end up saving everyone from injury or other harm. Listen to what your heart and mind is telling you and stay open to feedback from other people in your organization when they have concerns surrounding workplace safety.
Safety is a priority 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. But everyone could use a reminder and refresher every year to reevaluate the safety procedures and practices in their life. Take some time this June to do just that! At CORE, we will continue to prioritize safety for all our members and clients and strive to make every job site even safer than the one before.
