Top 10 Work Safety Resolutions by Workrite

OXNARD, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 15, 2014) -  The New Year generally brings renewed ambitions, goal setting and a giant ball dropping in Times Square. But, how can you make sure you don't "drop the ball" on safety in 2015?

To help kick through the clutter and get down to what matters, Workrite Uniform is proud to present its "Top 10 Work Safety Resolutions" for the New Year. Read on to learn how you can make sure your safety clothing, equipment and procedures are working as hard as you are in 2015.

TOP 10 WORK SAFETY RESOLUTIONS

1. PUT SAFETY FIRST

Follow safety procedures and always wear flame-resistant (FR) clothing, and other personal protective equipment (PPE). It may just save your life.

2. PERFORM YOUR HAZARD ASSESSMENT

Knowing the potential hazards of your industry allows you to use the proper FR clothing and other PPE.

3. CONDUCT SAFETY BRIEFINGS BEFORE PERFORMING HAZARDOUS WORK

Safety briefings help to assure that safety protocols are followed when performing hazardous work.

4. ZIP UP, ROLL DOWN AND TUCK IN ALL FR CLOTHING

Following these simple rules will make sure you get the full protection provided by your FR clothing.

5. NEVER WEAR SYNTHETIC LAYERS UNDER FR CLOTHING

Even clothing worn under FR garments can experience heat. Synthetic fabrics can melt onto skin and cause severe burn injuries.

6. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE PROPER FIT

Properly fitting FR clothing and other PPE will make it more effective in providing protection.

7. WEAR YOUR HARD HAT

Don't take your hard hat for granted! It protects one of the most important parts of your body.

8. WEAR YOUR SAFETY GLASSES

Safety glasses may be easy to forget, but your eyes are irreplaceable. Wear them.

9. USE HEARING PROTECTION

Loud noise may not have an immediate impact, but over time, it can cause major damage and hearing loss.

10. WEAR FALL RESTRAINTS WHEN ELEVATED

Falls are one of the most common injuries, and fall restraints greatly minimize that risk of injury.
