Each year, the National Safety Council uses June's National Safety Month to bring attention to key safety issues. This includes everything from tripping and falling, to distracted driving, to workplace safety. Triumvirate Environmental is giving workplace safety some extra attention this year.
According to Michael Lombardi, Director of Health and Safety at Triumvirate, the safety of Triumvirate employees is top priority.
“At Triumvirate Environmental Inc. there is a strong commitment from management to build the most productive, long term, customer intimate, environmental services firm by wowing each employee and each customer every day,” said Lombardi. “The mission of the safety department is to be an integral part of that commitment and we believe that all injuries are preventable. As a company we provide the best training, equipment and procedures and although safety is a team effort; ultimately safety begins with you. At the end of the day, nothing is more important than going home safely to your family and loved ones.“
Since OSHA was instituted, workplace injuries and deaths have decreased by 60%. Even so, there are still employees ignoring safety precautions every day. According to OSHA, 4,628 workers were killed on the job in 2012. Safety education and awareness, no doubt, is still very important.
With all the safety acronyms and regulations, learning how to be safe in the workplace and at home can feel like drowning in a bowl of alphabet soup. Learning about safety can be difficult, confusing, and even boring.
So why not make it a little fun?
With this line of thinking Triumvirate Environmental Inc. is launching Smiles 4 Safety (#Smiles4Safety). In a sea of manuals, tip sheets and posters, Triumvirate will be teaching the population about safety through smile-worthy updates and new content items every day. It’s more fun for everyone and hopefully will help some of the information stick.
Stay tuned for the most exciting National Safety Month yet. We promise, it’ll be worth it, especially if you like watching EHS workers dance.
