Safety Message of the Day...

The mention of winter evokes images of snowflakes and skaters gliding across ice. But winter can also be a time of illness and injury, if people fail to take adequate health and safety precautions.

More than 100 viruses can cause colds, the world's most common illness, so few people escape being exposed to at least one of them. In the US, most people average three colds every year.

While there is no vaccine to protect you from catching a cold, but you can keep up your natural resistance through good nutrition and getting enough sleep and exercise.

Working outside in the winter can be a dirty job, but many of us have to do it. Are you ready for winter work?

Two big concerns of working or simply spending time outdoors in cold weather are frostbite and hypothermia. Both can occur at much higher temperatures than many people realize. For example, exposed skin can start to freeze at just 28 degrees Fahrenheit (-2 degrees Celsius).

Dress in layers of light-weight clothing which keep you warmer than a single layer of heavy clothes.

When faced with a hot, sunny day at the beach, most of us recognize the need for sunglasses and sunscreen.

But what about winter sun?

How many people consider winter sun to be harmful?

Unfortunately, few take precautions necessary to ensure their protection from the winter sun.
Like sunshine in the summer, winter sunshine contains two types of radiation that are dangerous to you: ultraviolet-A and ultraviolet-B. You require protection from both.

Just like the summer sun, overexposure to winter sunlight will give you a sunburn.

The holidays are almost here which means the kickoff to holiday travel season is about to begin. Nearly 63.9 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home during the Christmas holiday travel period. More than 52.4 million Americans (82 percent of all holiday travelers) intend to travel by automobile.

Make sure that your car is well-equipped for travel. Check the tire tread, battery, antifreeze, windows and brakes. Also check that you have a jack and lug wrench and that your spare tire is properly inflated.

Fatigue is the condition of being physically or mentally tired or exhausted. Fatigue can lead to uncontrolled and involuntary shutdown of the brain.

Everyone needs your help, because in most cases, people who are under significant fatigue can’t identify it themselves. These include:

-They can’t recall their last thought, conversation, or what they did a moment ago.
-They have a near-miss accident.
-They can’t stop yawning.

When you’re fatigued you make errors in judgment. Your mind or eyes can be off task and you can make a critical error.

Falling while getting into or out of heavy equipment, a truck or tractor cab, hooking up air and electrical lines, or mounting or dismounting trailers is a sure way to get seriously hurt.

The THREE-POINT system allows a person to have maximum stability and support, thereby reducing the likelihood of slipping and falling. Be a winner; use the THREE-POINT system.

The professional driver or operator knows all the do’s and don’ts of getting in and out of vehicles and practices the Three Point Rule every day.

The only person who can prevent a fall is you!

When posed with the question "what is safety", the answer may appear obvious. One person's answer or perception of safety may be quite different from another's. This perception of safety is often based on one's own occupation and or experiences.

The more we learn, practice, share and mentor each other on the aspects of safety in our workplace and lives, the safer we become. Not by adding rules, rather by sharing experiences. By sharing and creating a broad and increasing knowledge of safety, we create and sustain a vibrant safety culture.

Jump Start Safety

Use the booster cables in this order:
1. Clamp/connect one end of the positive (+) booster cable to the positive (+) post of the dead battery. Positive is typically color coded RED.
2. Connect the other end of the same cable to the same marked post (+) of the booster battery.
3. Connect the second, negative (-) booster cable to the other post of the booster battery. Negative is typically color coded BLACK.
4. Make the final negative (-) booster cable connection on the engine block of the stalled vehicle away from the battery.

Thanksgiving would not be the same without friends, family and a large meal. Here are some tips to keep everyone safe during this special day.

-Never thaw a turkey at room temperature because this promotes the growth of dangerous bacteria. Thaw it in the fridge.

- Cook on the back burners when possible and turn pot handles in so they don’t extend over the edge of the stove.

- When it’s time to cut the turkey, sharp knives cut easier than dull ones and you’re less likely to cut yourself accidentally.

Have a Safe Thanksgiving!!!
