Safety Agencies: The CSB

Helping our customers to operate under the safest conditions is a core value of our company. We work hard to assess the unique risks of an industrial environment and create a safety management system that will help reduce that risk and allow you achieve the highest level of success. 

Following the codes, standards, and best practices set forth by the appropriate agencies is a key part of this process. Thats why its important that these entities are too being monitored. Should an accident occur someone needs to investigate the cause and recommend a corrective course of action. 

Celebrate Safely

We often talk about safety in the workplace but its important to remember, especially with the summer holidays upon us, to be safe at home as well. Celebrating Independence Day in the USA has become a great tradition amongst family and friends. Its a time for barbecue, swimming, and fireworks, and while all of these activities are fun, they present a certain amount of risk, requiring safe practices:

Safety Does Not come out of a Box

Since the month of June is National Safety Month and it’s focus this year is finding ways to reduce your risk, let’s focus specifically on how that can be done in the industrial workplace.

Safety: It takes all of us

Each June, the National Safety Council celebrates National Safety Month as a time to bring attention to key safety issues. This years theme, "Safety: It takes all of us," was inspired by the idea of continuous risk reduction – a key pillar in the Journey to Safety Excellence.  A successful safety program depends on spotting hazards early, evaluating their risk and removing or controlling them before harm is done. 

Use this June to find creative ways to engage everyone in reducing risk in your workplaces. A little effort today has the potential to prevent tragedy tomorrow.
