At United Services, we place the utmost importance on the safety and well-being of our employees and clients. As such, we have implemented a comprehensive safety program consisting of 10 key points that have yielded remarkable success in reducing accidents and injuries.

We recognize that safety is a shared responsibility and require all team members to prioritize safety as a fundamental aspect of their daily tasks. To this end, we conduct daily morning meetings where we review and emphasize the 10 key points of our safety program, encouraging all team members to take heed and apply them to their daily tasks before commencing work.

We understand that safety is an ongoing process that requires continuous improvement and refinement. As such, we continuously review and update our safety program to ensure its relevance and effectiveness, provide regular training and education to all team members, and encourage open communication and collaboration to identify and address any potential safety issues.

We are committed to fostering a culture of safety at United Services, where all team members are empowered to work safely and prevent accidents and injuries. By prioritizing safety, we not only protect our team members and clients but also ensure the continued success and growth of our organization.

1. PREVENTING WORKPLACE INCIDENTS IS EVERYONE’S JOB AND PERSONAL SAFETY IS YOUR

RESPONSIBILITY:

Everyone has a role in making sure a workplace is safe, from the administrative assistant who gets boxes of newly delivered office supplies unpacked promptly to the warehouse foreman who makes sure every person on the line gets a break. When you take charge of your own safety, it creates a safer place for all employees.

2. DRESS APPROPRIATELY, FROM CLOTHING TO FOOTWEAR:

Keeping arms and legs covered, avoiding dangling jewelry ties, and wearing closed-toe shoes can go a long way in minimizing common workplace injuries and accidents. When and where applicable, always wear personal protective
equipment (PPE) making sure to inspect it for damage prior to and after use so it may be replaced promptly.

3. KEEP WORK AREAS NEAT AND TIDY:

At the beginning and end of each shift, trash must be cleared away, pickup cords and cables, put any used supplies away accordingly. Prior to starting work, gather any materials you will need to complete your tasks; this will help avoid losing or misplacing supplies and tools, as well as having to bend or stretch unnecessarily trying to reach objects that are misplaced or out of one’s reach.

4. FOLLOW THE RULES:

Don’t cut corners or take unnecessary risks. Workplace safety rules are often developed in response to Hazard & Risk assessment. They are, by nature, designed to minimize the chances that an employee will be injured while carrying out assigned tasks.

5. REPORT WORKPLACE ACCIDENTS OR SAFETY INCIDENTS:

Always report safety incidents to your supervisor promptly so that appropriate steps can be taken. These include getting care for injured employees, fixing the problem that caused the injury, or ensuring regulatory State and Federal compliance
reporting.

6. KNOW AND FOLLOW EMERGENCY PROCEDURES AND HAVE PROPER TRAINING:

In order to manage emergencies safely and effectively, it is imperative that all employees are trained in and follow emergency procedures. This helps safety coordinators and emergency service personnel get a handle on the situation and determine the best course of action to bring it under control. Also, taking the proper orientation needed for each site-specific task is of great importance to understand what you may encounter.

7. LIFT, BEND, AND STRETCH WITH CARE TO AVOID INJURY:

Injuries caused by poor technique when picking up boxes or stretching to reach objects are common causes of workplace injury. If you’re not sure how to best lift, bend or stretch at work, ask your supervisor or company safety officer.

8. DON’T OPERATE TOOLS OR MACHINERY THAT YOU HAVE NOT BEEN APPROPRIATELY TRAINED FOR:

While some tools or equipment may seem intuitive, it is always best to avoid using equipment unless you have been trained in proper handling. This is for your safety as well as the safety of those around you.

9. AVOID DRUGS AND ALCOHOL AT WORK

Not only can drugs and alcohol affect your motor skills, but they can also impair your judgment and ability to communicate. Even prescription drugs can have a serious effect on your ability to handle machinery and tools safely

10. TAKE BREAKS APPROPRIATELY

Being well-rested helps employees maintain the focus and situational safety awareness that contributes to workplace safety. In some places, work breaks may be established according to the contract; In others, it is on the employees to work out shift breaks amongst themselves.
