Orientation to Safety For New Employees
New employees are asked to learn a lot of important information regarding their responsibilities. None of these responsibilities is more important than workplace safety. Our safety program is designed to prevent workplace incidents or injuries through employee training, eliminating hazards, following safe work procedures and the use of personal protective equipment. All employees must help in our safety efforts by reporting to work each day well rested, fit for duty and committed to performing your job in a safe manner. This program discusses the most common safety issues new hires may encounter while performing their jobs and the safe work practices and job procedures that must be followed to prevent injuries and ensure that everyone arrives home safely at the end of each day. Topics include various types of personal protective equipment, preventing slips, trips and falls, ladder safety, pedestrian safety, safe lifting techniques, hazard communication, lockout/tagout, emergency response, bloodborne pathogens, incident reporting and confined spaces.
