Accident Prevention Safety Tags

What does Accident Prevention mean?

Accident prevention refers to the plans, preparations, and actions taken to avoid accidents or stop them from taking place.
Accident prevention includes all measures taken in an effort to save lives, escape from injury, lessen the degrees of injury, avoid damage to property, reduce treatment and compensation costs, and prevent the loss of productive time and morale.

Accident Prevention is working!!!

  • Worker deaths in America are down-on average, from about 38 worker deaths a day in 1970 to 14 a day in 2017.
  • Worker injuries and illnesses are down-from 10.9 incidents per 100 workers in 1972 to 2.8 per 100 in 2017.


Today's focus is on Accident Prevention Tags

OSHA Heat Illness Prevention Campaign

With the dog days of summer upon on us this 4th of July week OSHA has again reminded us of the dangers of excessive heat.  OSHA's new campaign concentrates on

WATER - REST - SHADE


Order Online Our 2" Heat Illness Trained Hard Hat Decals 25 Per Pack
Pressure Sensitive Vinyl


In 2015 According To The US Department Of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics
Exposure to environmental heat led to 37 work-related deaths and 2,830 nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses involving days away from work in 2015.

Workers
Landscaping and Construction are the most common we see around us everyday.  No one really thinks about the workers in steel mills or brick firing ceramic plants.  The important thing is to remember to stay hydrated and take a break.  You will finish your project a lot faster if your head is clear and your body feels strong.

Leisure
Whether your at a baseball game or on the golf course staying hydrated is key.  Pounding a bunch of beers sitting at the ball park or playing golf in the heat is an absolute no no.  Caffeine from certain types of drinks can also dehydrate you.  The best thing you can do is drink plenty of water.

July is National Fireworks Safety Month


This is the time of year we love our fireworks.  I don't know anyone who returns to work after a Fourth Of July holiday and everyone is talking about how I thought the neighborhood was going to blow up.  It was so loud.


Why is that a problem?  Individuals in the neighborhood are handling fireworks with really no experience and little regard for safety.  It is the old adage it won't happen to me.  Well visit your local emergency room over the holiday and see how busy it is.

The practice with fireworks is leave it to the professionals and enjoy the holiday.

National Fireworks Safety Month is sponsored by Prevent Blindness America 

Please visit signslabelsandtags.comsignslabelsandtags.com for all your eye protection safety identification.
It is important to remind everyone to protect their vision.

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Don't drive distractedWe all have done it.  Talked on our cell phone while driving.  That is an absolute NOT!  Even with increased laws that prohibit driving while yakking away...we still seem to do it.  How many times have you seen someone making a left hand turn with their cell phone buried in their ear with not a care in the world.....until they re-end someone.  You have not only damaged your vehicle but another vehicle as well and that cars owner is the biggest human being you have ever seen and they are not happy.  By trying to save 1 minute you have just added hours of time to your schedule while costing yourself a lot of green, and who know about injuries.


We all know how not to drive distracted but here are some reminders
  • Use your device hands free
