Communication in the Work Place

By November 20, 2017 Safety Blog

During today’s Safety Talk Monday, Mark discussed the importance of communicating with others in the work place. When a workplace involves multiple people and heavy equipment it is good practice to look out for hazards other people may encounter.

Steps to staying safe:

  • Communicate your intentions: Let people around you know what you are doing so they are aware.
  • Plan ahead: Always look ahead at the task and identify hazards or potential risks. 
  • Make eye contact: A simple rule of thumb is to make eye contact with people around your work area. Eye contact automatically tells you that both individuals know where you are.
  • Due Diligence: It is encouraged to show or identify potential risks. It is key to know before rather than after a incident occurs.
