    What do you do? The safety procedures for an accounting department are going to be different from those for a fire department, for instance. Nobody can give advice on a subject like this in the kind of information vacuum we've got here.

    Lok-Out / Tag-Out is what I've seen lately. But as Joseph says, this is too broad to address meaningfully.

    It don't really matter what your job is as long it's safety related that will do..

    • Don't look directly into the sun
    • Don't hold magnets near a large fan
    • Don't poke things into your inner ear
    • Don't run with scissors

    Seriously, you got to provide something. There are a number of safety protocols in place at companies that have company vehicles that would be totally irrelevant in an office setting. Does everyone at your workplace wear hardhats and protective glasses? Technically that could be a nice safety thing no matter where you work, but it's a bit of overkill at most places.

    In addition to the other suggestions, what safety programs does your work already have in place?? No need to suggest things you already use.

    dang! don't we have a tough crowd here in this forum.[​IMG] Anyway maybe it might not apply to my work but I can recommend it to someone else. But to answer your questions I work at a Co. that makes additives to construction like cement, makes fireproofing materials, work around a hot (very hot) furnace. hope that helps... thanks to all..
    Here are the few safety programs that we have:
    Lock out/tag out
    Fall protection program
    Confined Space program
    and some more that I dont remember as the moment.

    I want one of those level 4 suits. Seriously, I work in a benign environment, a university, but b/c the campus is so big and no tornado sirens are on campus, we can barely hear the sirens, esp if it is windy and rainy (geez, just the conditions for a tornado in the midwest). Don't know if tornados are a threat for you Bry, but I wonder if your workplace is noisy and if you can hear tornado sirens?

    Supervisors should wet their fingers and stick them into the circuit they want you to work on before they have you start work (we have an excess of supervisors where I work)[​IMG]

    Google "Nuclear Safety Programs". That industry is very anal concerning change management and safety education. Ignore any links containing "Homer", "doughnuts" and "nap-time".
