Sizewise Rentals is committed to working with our employees to provide a safe work place. It is our policy that employees should report unsafe conditions and will not perform work tasks without using the appropriate safety equipment or Personal Protective Equipment. We all play an equal part. We have established this initiative to achieve our goal of minimizing work place injuries and incidents.
Each site will track Accident free days using a poster. This poster is to be posted in plain view of all employees. The Site Manager will update the poster daily to reflect how many consecutive accident free days the site has accomplished.
On the lower portion of the poster, contact information has been provided for each employee to report any safety issues or concerns to the Sizewise Safety Officer. These calls will remain confidential whenever possible.
Any workplace injury or accident requires the Incident Report Form to be completed and submitted to Human Resources within 23 hours. Only an accident resulting in a visit to a health care provider will reset your days to “0”. What is a reportable incident or accident?
Any vehicle accident that results in damage to any vehicle or property, injury to any person requires the Vehicle Accident Report Form to be completed and submitted to Human Resources. Only reports that result in a claim or payout against the Company will reset your days to “0”.
Any equipment malfunction at a facility that results in patient or staff injury is to be documented on the Company Incident Report Form. Only malfunctions due to improper maintenance procedures or lack of in service will reset your days to “0”.
An incentive program has been developed to encourage and reward employees and sites for achieving the Company’s goal of operating accident and incident free. These incentives are intended to reward safety-minded employees and sites, as well as to provide recognition for accomplishing these goals. Rewarding Safe Employees!
Safety Education and Training Each month, every site will be provided with safety training materials. The focus for each month will be identified on the monthly poster. Every month these topics will change.
