Incidents and near misses appear to be on the rise across the industry.
Conduct a safety stand down or safety meeting with your shift crews to remind workers of the importance of safety and the key safety behaviors that should be at the forefront throughout all of their work tasks.
Safety is and will always be the industry’s primary focus, and the workers who serve on the front lines of our operations play an essential role in ensuring safe work practices and preventing workplace incidents. Everyone has a duty to work in a safe manner and must make safety a part of every task.
The OSA is partnering with key groups in the industry to assist with voluntary efforts in conducting safety stand-down or safety meetings across the industry to help bring focus and awareness to the safety actions all workers should take when carrying out their tasks.
To help stop this rise, we are asking companies to conduct a safety stand down or safety meeting with their shift crews to remind workers of the importance of safety and the key safety behaviors that should be at the forefront throughout all of their work tasks.
Below are some resources on safety basics that can be incorporated into your company's safety guidance. Additional safety resources are available through the OSA Resource Library.
