Safer and Smarter Work Environments through Awareness

Getting Started?

New to Safety Programs?  Looking for some best practices to blend in with your own?

Begin here: Safety Programs – Getting Started to get a overview on how to run a Safety Program like you see here on this site.  Be sure to check out the Tool and Resources area for Toolbox talks, Forms and other items that will help with the initiative.

Our Programs

Line of Fire Safety

Line of Fire injuries encompass contact with a force that your body cannot endure.  This is a well known industry categorized injuries that typically are grouped into three core areas: Striking HazardsCrushing Hazards, and Stored Energy.   In addition to this, we have a special activity for Hand Safety as well as a complete standalone program for Dropped Objects called Stop the Drop.

Musculoskeletal Injury

A “musculoskeletal injury” is an injury that involves the muscles, tendons, nerves, ligaments, joints and other soft tissues causing a worker to feel pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness while performing a task.

The Musculoskeletal Injury Safety Program has been broken down in five separate activities: Force, Work Posture, Repetition & Duration, Contact Stress, and Vibration & Temperature.

Stop The Drop

Dropped Objects are a significant problem on many job sites that have work above ground level.  Tools, parts, and waste when dropped from a seemingly small height can turn deadly very quickly.  Companies that experience periodic or temporary work from heights can have an even higher rate of incidents as workers are not used to the dangers that can happen with Dropped Objects.

The Stop the Drop program was developed originally as an extension to the Line of Fire Safety Program and eventually became a standalone product with the demand that followed.

Let’s Talk Safety

Most companies that implement Safety Programs implement multiple over time.  As the months and years pass, without periodic revitalization, workers become complacent with the message and incidents can start to rise.  Let’s Talk Safety is a method to bring those messages back to the job site by encouraging communications and sharing at all levels.
