Summer Safety Tips – Don’t Just Race to the Finish Line! – Here are a few ways you can slow down and be more careful in the coming months.
Today as the world reopens and more vaccinations for COVID-19 are administered it’s easy to get excited to return to life again but it’s important to keep the basic rules of safety and precautions in mind as you do.
Especially in the workplace – it’s far too easy to rush through things in excitement and this is always what leads to mistakes or injuries. In the medical field, where highly regulated processes are common, mistakes and missed steps could lead to serious fines – or worse.
This summer, we’re reminding our clients, customers and staff to pause, and work carefully through the motions for ultimate safety.
Here are a few ways you can slow down and be more careful in the coming months.
Check that All Safety Equipment is Being Used
Whether you oversee staff at a healthcare facility or you’re a worker who comes in contact with potentially infectious waste, you simply cannot miss a step when it comes to protecting yourself on the job. Always check – and then recheck that all necessary safety equipment is being used as required.
So many accidents happen in the workplace because a step was skipped or changed at the last minute and did not follow proper protocol. Anytime you’re changing rules for your advantage you’re increasing the risk of a problem occurring. Overcome the laziness of walking to the other side of the shop to get the right tool or ask that management provide what’s needed for you to get the job done both more efficiently as well as safely.
At MedXWaste we provide our customers with everything they need to feel reassured that their medical waste has been picked up, hauled away and disposed of in accordance with all industry and state laws. We care about your safety. Make it a point to be better this summer to protect everyone with these summer safety tips.
