Safety Tips:

Aidan Abreu


Ensure your environment is clean and hazard-free

    • Double-check equipment is intact and working before using
    • Be aware of floor obstacles or spills

Use clean and proper PPEs that also fit appropriately

    • Stray away from reusing all PPEs from the recommended amount
    • Use the correct PPE for each different task
    • Ensure you have proper footwear for the environment

Take note of your energy levels and utilize breaks:

    • Do I really need to remind you about coffee?
    • Optimize your breaks for recovery and try to time them for when you need them
    • Try foods that give you an energy boost without the crash:

                                Ex. Fruit, eggs, oatmeal, or whole wheat bread!

Be thorough with procedures/protocols and stay away from shortcuts

    • Ensure you and your team have completed proper training
    • Don’t rush procedures… It’s not a race
    • Stay away from encouraging shortcuts that could lead to potential safety risks

Ensure your communication between the team is optimal

    • Warn your team about potential hazards… be empathic!
    • Be clear and as thorough as you can with your team
    • Ensure you are actively listening to instructions.
          • Don’t jump to conclusions/start planning
          • Stay away from imposing opinions
          • Eye contact/watch for non-verbal cues
