  • 1. Installing Safety Awareness Ames Temporary Service Javona Woolery, Owner Last Updated 6/7/2008
  • 2. Instilling Safety Awareness
    • A
      • Safety requires, and receives, a lot of attention here at ATS.
      • The government has numerous safety programs and regulations that the ATS follows.
      • ATS make an effort to purchase equipment and design processes that reduce risk and improve safety.
      • ATS also provides you with training & protective equipment, all with the goal of preventing accidents and keep you sage and healthy.
  • 3. Continued Part A
      • However, all the regulations, training, and equipment in the world can’t protect people who do look out for themselves.
      • The sad fact is that people can be the greatest cause of accident – most accidents are someone’s fault. They’re the result of carelessness, of someone not paying attention or not thinking safety in important on his or her part.
  • 4. B. Identify Hazards
      • One of the most important safety responsibilities is simply to be aware of the need for safety.
      • It means thinking ahead to what hazards you could encounter, thinking ahead about what could go wrong, on everything you do.
      • It mean recognizing that safety is your job.
      • It means using common sense you were born with.
  • 5. C. Protection Against Hazards
      • A safe attitude means recognizing and understanding the risks you face on the job
        • Don’t let others talk you into bypassing safety procedures. You know the right way to do it.
        • Don’t take shortcuts. All these procedures exist for a reason, and that reason is often your safety
  • 6. Continued Part C
      • Don’t fool around, Horseplay, showing off, and practical joke’s don’t belong in the work area. They’re simply too dangerous.
      • Pay attention to what you’re doing. If your mind is on last night or tonight, on a ball game or your bills, you’re likely to make mistakes. There’s just too much at stake not to give your job your full attention.
  • 7. Continued Part C
      • Know what to do in an emergency. ATS clients have contingency plans for fires, spills, etc. Be sure you know where alarms and emergency exits are and what to do if the worst happens.
      • If in doubt, ask. No one is expected to be perfect. We all have to ask questions sometimes – or, at least, we all should.
  • 8. Continued Part C
      • What this adds up to is simple: safety is important part of your job. Training helps. Equipment helps. Bust one of them are any substitute for good old common sense and your genuine belief that safety is important and that you’re responsible for it.
  • 9. Continued Part C Bottom line is clear
      • If you’re not sure what to do, Ask.
      • If you’re not sure how to do it, Ask.
      • If you’re not sure how it works, Ask.
  • 10. Continued Part C Do and Don’ts Distribute handouts Instilling Awareness Do and Don’ts.
  • 11. Continued Part C
      • Work is serious business. It involves a lot of equipment and substances that can be dangerous if they’re not treated with care, respect, and knowledge.
      • There’s no place for people who treat this as a joke or think that safety is somebody else’s concern.
      • It’s everybody’s concern. If you don’t take it seriously, you may created a serious accident that could have been avoided.
  • 12. Practical Exercises and Discussion Points
      • Ask employees the name the greatest cause of accidents
      • Discuss some of the reasons for careless accidents
      • Review the information & equipment that are available to protect employees.
      • Ask employees what they should do before they start any job.
      • Request employees to help you list some of the important work habits that show common sense and safety – minded attitude.
      • Tell employees there are things to avoid on the job to prevent accidents. Ask what some are.
  • 13. Warm-up
      • Carelessness cause accidents, and a safe attitude and common sense prevents them. It sounds simple, but the number of accidents & near- misses that occur indicate it must not be as simple as it sounds.
      • You as an ATS employee are responsible for you own safety and for those around you.
      • The Gov’t enacts safety regulations for your protection. ATS and/or client provides you will training, procedures, and equipment with the same purpose.
      • You have to use the tools you’re given and apply your own caution and common sense to what happens around you.
