Safety is at the forefront of our minds here at Creative Safety Supply and we love to share our knowledge on the topic. Safety comes in a variety of different forms such as hazard communication, forklift safety, and fire safety, to name a few examples. Fourteen people on average don’t come home after work every day in the United States. For that reason, safety is and should be, the highest priority in any facility. There are countless ways in which the safety of your workplace can be improved, whether that be the use of Lean manufacturing techniques or simply adding more safety signage around the warehouse.
Here in this Q&A section you will learn a variety of different but useful information on safety and building a safe workplace for your employees. Some of the topics we will cover include:
- The importance of EHS: EHS stands for Environment, Health, and Safety. EHS programs are implemented with not only employees in mind, but also the health and safety of the community and environment in the near vicinity.
- How PSM works: PSM stands for process safety management and works to prevent the release of highly hazardous chemicals. However, in the event some are released, a PSM program works to minimize the consequences.
- Who the NSC is: The NSC stands for the National Safety Council. This non-profit organization works to reduce the number of preventable deaths that occur in the nation.
