While robots and automated manufacturing is on the rise, most of our workplaces are still inhabited by and for the most part, run by humans.

This means that the "Human Factor" is still very prevalent and important when considering the overall impact of safety programs and training and how important it can be to not only the bottom line of profitability, but of lives saved and injuries avoided.

In this short slideshow we present some of the elements that influence the Human Factor, as well as steps that can be taken to lessen the number of day to day accident and injury possibilities.

Thanks for stopping by, the team at Creative Safety Supply.
