Safety Begins with ME! Three Concerns of Every Business Production Quality Safety Business Success Schedule jobs; Set-up & run jobs; Ship product; Order raw material Measure parts; Check blueprints; QA inspection; Testing Monthly safety committee meeting; Quarterly inspection
Safety Begins with ME! Four 1-hour Modules Leading Safety Influencing Safe Behaviors Embedding Safety into Work Processes Recognizing (and Controlling) Safety Hazards
Safety Begins with ME! This Training May be Different I’ll introduce some topics, but you’ll be doing a lot of the talking. Along the way are several activities where we’ll use our knowledge and skills to tackle real-life situations. We’ll have specific assignments to complete in our own work areas during/following the training.
Safety Begins with ME! Module 1 Preview: Recognizing (and Controlling) Safety Hazards Base Safety – What makes a safe work environment? Hazard Recognition – Can you spot hazards in a variety of situations? Hazard Controls – What are the mechanisms for ensuring that bad stuff doesn’t happen? Assignments PREVIEW
Safety Begins with ME! Consequences of a Momentary Lapse in Safety OSHA Safety Video “Work Place Safety” September 2008 Can we wrap our brains around the life-long impact of just one momentary lapse of safety?
Safety Begins with ME! Too Little Too Late! or PROACTIVE Isn’t it better to invest just a little of this time & energy BEFORE something bad happens? Some companies are able to hire ‘professionals’ whose entire focus is Safety. But, just like with production and quality, no single individual can be responsible for such an important outcome. Have you thought seriously about your responsibility to make this shop/plant a safe place to work?
Safety Begins with ME! A SAFE Workplace Purpose: To identify the characteristics that must be present to ensure a safe workplace. Brainstorm: What goes into making a workplace like ours a “safe” place to work? Exercise

Safety Begins with ME! Ingredients of a Safe Workplace SAFETY: I KNOW it When I SEE it! Safe Conditions Safe design of equipment (guards, etc.) Proper maintenance Shop/plant is clean and organized ( 5-S ) Work environment is free of hazards Proper PPE is available Safe Actions PPE is used properly and consistently Proper work instructions (and training) are provided & then followed by all The proactive approach to safety is to take steps before something bad happens to ensure safe conditions and safe actions.
Safety Begins with ME! What is 5-S ? Sort: Keep only essential items Straighten or Set in Order: Arrange the tools, equipment and parts in a manner that promotes safety and efficiency Sweep: Clean the work area and prevent dirt Standardize: Ensure everyone knows what to do Sustain: Maintain the focus on this new way of operating, and don’t slip back to the old ways 5-S: More Than Just Good House- keeping 5-S Wall Poster

Case Study: Unsafe Situations Purpose: To practice spotting hazards in a variety of situations in order to sharpen our safety vision. Examine each of the following work situations What’s unsafe/amiss here? What concerns you about this? What needs to be done? How can this be improved? How can this risk be eliminated/minimized? Exercise

Safety Begins with ME! Hazard Controls Safe Work Practices – Follow the safe operating procedures that have been specified; no short-cuts. Good Housekeeping (5-S) – Get rid of the unnecessary clutter, clean and organize; keep area picked up, swept. Safe Equipment – Ensure guards are in place, machines are operating correctly, safety devices have not been bypassed. Proper PPE – Make sure that you (and those around you) have and use the right safety equipment to prevent injury.
Safety Begins with ME! Module Review We all share the responsibility for making this a safe place to work –Safety is an everyday concern, like production/quality –The consequences of even a brief lapse are too great We are proactive about safety because it is better to be proactive than to do too little too late Today we spotted workplace hazards in a variety of situations and sharpened up our safety vision REVIEW Production Quality Safety Business Success
Safety Begins with ME! Assignments Spot and report workplace safety concerns –Look for hazards in your area? (New eyes!) –Think: How could this be FIXED? –Fix IT! (if you can), OR Report it! Work as a team to 5S an area. (some time will need to be set aside to do this.) If possible, take BEFORE and AFTER pictures.
