PREVENTION IS THE BEST MEDECINE

Use Your PPE

  • Clean and inspect hard hats daily. Look for cracks, perforations or other deformities and if found, remove the hard hat from service immediately.
  • Wear your high vis safety vest and other indicators to visibly alert those around you to your location.
  • Use approved safety glasses to guard from dust and other flying particles. Eye injuries are painful.
  • When engineering or administrative controls are not feasible to reduce noise exposure, wear appropriate PPE including ear plugs, muffs or both.
  • When it comes to a choice of wearing safety toed shoes or losing a toe, safety toed shoes will always win.
  • Workers who may be exposed to harmful substances through cuts or lacerations, abrasions, chemical burns, thermal burns or harmful temperature extremes will benefit from proper hand protection.
