Be A Team Player Teamwork is the Key to Safety Promote safety by acting safely.
Avoiding Safety Hazards Safety is everyones responsibility. Watch out for everyday hazards, and advise your manager of an existing hazard that needs attention.

Avoiding Safety Hazards If you spill something, clean it up. If the spill is big, call the Employee Resource Center at to have it cleaned up quickly, before someone slips and falls.
Avoiding Safety Hazards Move items correctly. Never use a chair. Push the cart in front of you and only move one cart at a time.
Avoiding Safety Hazards Stack carts with heavier items on the bottom. Do not attempt to take items off top shelves if they are too heavy. Have someone assist you.
