Step 6: Guard Against Mishaps

guardBe attentive.  Know all emergency switches, alarms, evacuation routes, spill supplies, fire extinguishers, first aid stations, emergency showers and eye washes.  Be aware of any change in conditions that can adversely affect the safe completion of your task.  Act immediately when something goes wrong.  Protect yourself, notify others in the area and your supervisor.  Follow your company procedures for the type of incident.

While we believe what The Safely Working Project is promoting is useful to all employers and safety professionals, our efforts are directed at those small businesses that can’t afford or don’t have a safety professional to facilitate workplace safety.

The Safely Working Project is an approach to workplace safety that is driven by employees and supervisors.  This is fundamentally different from the traditional Safety Program where an EHS Professional manages workplace safety.  So, instead of top down safety, Safely Working™ endeavors to succeed from the ground up. “We’re turning safety upside down.”
