Accident Investigation & Prevention

Sometimes we wait too long to fix a potential problem. Most of the time it’s after an accident has already happened.

We think to ourselves “gosh, I knew I should’ve done something sooner.”

Now your employee and their family is hurt, your company takes a hit, an accident investigation takes place, and you’re left to pick up the pieces.

The frustrating part is we see it; the problem. We ignore it too.

It would take too much time to fix, or too much money,

or my employees wont be happy with the change

Simple things. Like, not wearing a proper harness, or not wearing the harness properly, not wearing the gloves, or glasses, or hardhat like they should be, leaning back or forward instead of moving the ladder, staying quiet when others aren’t being safe.

Taking the “short-cuts”, so to speak.

Change it today. The attitude of avoidance.

Let Safety be the new voice, the new standard in your company!

HSWT can help you set that standard.

You, your employees, and your company will Thank You.

Fire Safety.

Don’t wait till you smell smoke to ask, what should I do in the event of a fire?

Fire Safety is an important part of being prepared. It’s not enough to know where the exits are, what items to grab on the way out, or when and how to help others. Fire preparedness includes preemptive measures as well!

Some preliminary questions to consider are:

Do you have a fire alarm?How would employee communication work in the event of an emergency? Where is the safety rendezvous point?  Continue reading “Fire Safety.”

Forklift Training

Why do I need to provide training for my forklift operators?

Each type of forklift presents different operating hazards based on the way they lift, and amount of weight they can support. In addition, type of workplace can introduce many hazards, including putting the pedestrians in danger. Some commons accidents include: (1) lift trucks are inadvertently driven off loading docks;

  • (2) lifts fall between docks and an unsecured trailer;
  • (3) they are struck by a lift truck; or
  • (4) they fall while on elevated pallets and tines.

Determining the best way to protect workers from injury largely depends on the type of truck operated and the worksite where it is being used. Employers must ensure that each powered industrial truck operator is competent to operate a powered industrial truck safely

Safety Fact:

It is a violation of Federal law for anyone UNDER 18 years of age to operate a forklift or for anyone OVER 18 years of age who is not properly trained and certified to do so.

My employee already knows how to drive a forklift, do I really have to pay for additional training?

Yes, if your company operates forklifts, forklift drivers have to be trained initially & periodically.
