Safety Checklist

Safety Strategies and Procedures for organizations

Health and Safety is a very important part of an organization, certain precautionary measures need to be implemented for businesses to succeed in keeping their employees safe. This can include proper training, policies, inspections and emergency response plans.

 

Here are some Health and Safety procedures that can be on your organizations checklist:

 

  • Preforming often site inspections and evaluating if proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is in place.
  • Creating a Health and Safety Policy for employees and supervisors to follow.
  •  Introducing an ERP (Emergency Response Plan) so your organization is prepared for emergency situations and knows how to respond.
  • Implementing proper training. Having training like First Aid or WHIMIS can be not only useful but very necessary in many workplaces and is important for employees to have.

 

All these services on your safety checklist can be done by the staff here at TOTAL Safety Management. For more information on TOTAL Safety Management or on creating a Safety Checklist please contact us at [email protected] or call 519-428-9494

 

 


Don't wait until it's too late.  Be proactive.  Think ahead.  Be safe.

COVID-19

COVID-19 Screening and Precautions

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues it is important to maintain safety precautions and procedures. This includes proper sanitation, maintaining a safe social distance from other people, wearing a face covering/mask, keeping gatherings small and trying to go out only for essential items.

 

One step towards combating COVID-19 we are using at TOTAL Safety Management and for our clients is COVID Screening. This screening includes a series of questions to determine if you have any COVID-19 like symptoms, have traveled recently or have been in close contact with someone who has been infected/symptomatic.

 

This screening program alerts us when someone has answered yes to any of these questions and allows us to further investigate if it was a mistake, error or if there is cause for concern and to take the proper measures to deal with it. This is one way TOTAL Safety Management is trying our best to be proactive and keep our staff and clients safe.

 

For more information on TOTAL Safety Management or our COVID Screening program please contact us at [email protected] or call 519-428-9494.

Workplace Health and Safety TIPS

DID YOU KNOW?

The Internal Responsibility System or "IRS" was one of the many recommendation made by the Ham Commission in 1976.  A fundamental philosophy of workplace safety, the IRS system works on the foundation that workplace health and safety is a "shared" responsibility between management and all workers.  With a goal of preventing workplace illnesses, injury and/or disease through proactive intervention and hazard control.

 

Contrary to what some people think, the IRS system is not a reporting hierarchy in the workplace or at a job-site.  It has nothing to do with chain of command or communication.  The IRS can only work through mutual co-operation and voluntary participation of all Employees, Supervisors, Senior Management and the Employer.

Winter Weather

Safe working conditions

Working outside in cold conditions isn’t just uncomfortable, it can be dangerous. There are many effects the cold can take on your body such as frostbite, hypothermia, and numbing. As the weather changes and gets cold, snowy and icy it is important to practice safe working procedures to keep yourself warm, hydrated and safe.

Here are some tips for working outside in the cold this winter:

 

Dress for the Conditions: Wearing layers as well as thermals under your clothes can make all the difference when working outside. These layers should be loose and breathable to avoid discomfort.

 

Leave Early: Roads can be very icy and slippery in the winter, especially in the early mornings. Plan on leaving 10-20 minutes early to give yourself extra time, drive slowly and be aware of road conditions before you leave.

 

Stay Dry: Plan on wearing waterproof coats and boots and bring extra clothes in case your get damp.

 

Stay Hydrated and Nourished:  You can still get dehydrated in winter weather despite the cold. Be sure to eat and stay nourished. Your body needs nutrients in cold temperatures.

Some of TOTAL Safety Management’s Investigation services include:

  • Investigation of Misconduct and Discipline
  • Incident and Accident reporting and Investigation
  • Workplace Mediation and Counseling
  • Internal Theft and Property Damage
