Promote Safety During National Safety Month

When it comes to your people, nothing’s more important than their safety. Safety policies and procedures make staff feel comfortable coming to work and end up saving the company time, money, and headaches. Since June is National Safety Month, now is a great time to review your safety policies and consider how you can improve upon them.

To promote safety in your organization, we’ve put together a few suggestions that will keep safety in the forefront of every employee’s mind.

Actively Communicate about Safety. Maintaining active communication about your safety goals and progress is imperative to keeping safety front of mind for your entire team. Create and post office signs around the building which state your safety goals and give status updates of your progress. To communicate with the entire organization, add a section to your company newsletter or intranet to share safety updates.

Promote Safety Daily. Keep safety in front of your staff – literally. Equip each employee with a safety themed lanyard or safety badge reels to attach to their ID card. The “Safety First” messages on these ID card accessories will constantly remind employees of the organization’s number one priority: keeping them safe. If you have a special safety program slogan, create your own custom lanyards or custom badge reels.
 
Reward Team Safety. Keep your teams striving to create a safe environment by rewarding their efforts. Celebrate the achievement of safety goals and the innovation of new safety procedures as a team. At a regular team meeting, review the goals and give employees a small safety themed lapel pin or company logo gift. The positive reinforcement will have the entire team striving to repeat or improve their achievement.

Make safety front of mind for employees, and you’ll create a safety-conscious culture that is bound to lead to increased productivity and employee engagement!

Workplace Safety

National Safety Month is a Great Opportunity to Refresh ID Cards

by david 7. June 2011 09:45

If you read last week’s post, you know that June is National Safety Month. All this month, we’ll be sharing tips and ideas that can make your organization a safer place.

National Safety Month was established in 1996 by the National Safety Council to increase public awareness of safety and health risks in workplaces, homes, and communities. This month is a prime opportunity to bring safety to the forefront of your organization and establish its value as a great workplace.

Create your own Employee ID CardsJune is an excellent time to refresh your workforce on company safety procedures. Begin Safety Month with a reminder of your identification policy. Going over the policy is certain to get everyone on the same page when it comes to proper use and display of their ID cards.

Don’t have an identification policy? Make a resolution to create one. Identification in the workplace improves safety by providing a visual identifier of individuals in the building. This makes it easier to identify who do and does not belong in the building. Thanks to identification software and easy-to-use photo ID card systems, you can create the identification policy that will have the greatest impact on safety for your organization. 

Safety Month is a great opportunity to update staff ID card pictures, too. At staff meetings, have your digital camera ready and offer “picture-retakes” for anyone interested. Employees will be more likely to wear their ID when they are happy with their picture. Hand out new lanyards or badge reels to everyone to encourage them to regularly sport their new ID cards.

Safety is an essential piece to creating a work environment where employees look forward to coming to work. When you create a safety-conscious culture at your organization, employees will thank you with increased productivity and engagement.

Workplace Safety

ID Cards Make Work a Safer Place

Get More Safety Tips for National Safety MonthEach June, the National Safety Council (NSC) encourages businesses to promote and improve safety during National Safety Month. You can use the NSC's timely reminder to review your organization's safety policies and practices. Safety policies and procedures prevent accidents, injuries and death in the workplace. Implementing employee ID badges is an important part of a safety policy and can make your organization a safer place for employees.

Visual Recognition
ID cards provide visual recognition of every person in your building, making it easy for security personnel or employees to identify persons who don't belong.

Building Access – Coordinate employee ID cards with access control through HID proximity cards. An access control system allows all employees to enter the building at will while requiring visitors to enter through a monitored entrance. You also have the ability to disable an employee's card if he is no longer allowed in the building.

Picture Directory – Using ID Maker software, you can easily create an employee photo directory for your employee handbook or intranet. The picture directory allows employees to become familiar with new faces around the building.

Visitor Management – Utilize your photo ID card printer to create visitor ID badges. Visitor ID badges signal to employees that the visitor is permitted to be in the building. Create badges for contractors or consultants who visit regularly to encourage an atmosphere of teamwork.

National Safety Month is the ideal time to implement an ID card safety policy or upgrade your current policy. When employees feel safe at work, they are more productive, engaged and less likely to use disability benefits. To conduct a thorough review of your organization's safety policies, reference our Workplace Security Audit available in our Knowledge Center.
