Onsite Safety

Frontline supervisors involvement are the key to workplace safety!

[tweetmeme]Safety meetings provide opportunities to focus on specific hazards, operations, and attitudes. They allow supervisors and safety professionals to select topics and formats geared to the needs of a particular group. 
Safety meetings can be formal, preannounced group presentations using videos, expert speakers, and other planned aids. Or they can be brief, informal one-on-one or small group discussions and demonstrations designed to deal with problems or knowledge gaps that supervisors identify on the job.
Because supervisors are on the floor, observing and directing operations, they are best able to determine the strengths and weaknesses of their operations and their workers.  This knowledge, coupled with their own experience and responsibility for their units, makes supervisors the best choice to determine when and why safety meetings are needed.
