With All Those Extra Distractions...

I’ve heard it said that days go slow, but years go fast.

Well, this year is no exception and it has flown by just like all the rest, bringing us once again into the holiday season.

This is one of my favorite times of year and hopefully yours, too, so I think it’s important that we do all we can to keep it that way.

And since Safety E-QuickTips is about workplace safety, I’m going to talk about what we can do this holiday season to make it a safe one for everyone.

This is the time of year when things tend to get a little hectic. People are a little more distracted than usual by everything that is going on in their lives such as parties, decorating, family get togethers and maybe even trying to find that gift for that someone who has everything.

With all those extra distractions come more opportunities for workplace accidents. That’s right, distractions are never good when it comes to workplace safety.

So here are a few things you can do this holiday season to help ensure everyone goes home at the end of the day, safe and sound:

  • When you’re at work keep your mind on the task at hand; leave those holiday distractions at home
  • Make sure you have the right tools to get the job done safely
  • Don’t cut corners when it comes to workplace safety at the end of the day or when the job is wrapping up
  • Have an extra safety meeting or two to help remind everyone the value of working safe
  • In an effort to get a little more done during your drive to and from work, don’t text and drive

Working together, let’s make it the safest holiday season ever.

From all of us here at U.S. Compliance Systems, here’s wishing you and your families a Safe and Happy Holiday Season.
