Happy Safe + Sound Week is August 12-18, 2019

Posted By IAMU, Wednesday, August 14, 2019

We take our member’s safety seriously and we know that you do, too! So, this year IAMU is participating in OSHA’s Safe + Sound Week, which runs through Aug. 18. This is a nationwide event held each August that recognizes the successes of workplace health and safety programs and shares ideas on how to keep workers safe.

Here are a few simple suggestions from OSHA that you can follow to make a difference in your employee’s perception of safety:

  • Create a board for workers to display suggestions to help find and fix workplace hazards.
  • Hold a demonstration on proper use of safety equipment.
  • Host an informal “lunch and learn” on a part of your safety program.
  • Recognize a safety milestone and employee contributions with a party.

One of the most effective ways to promote safety year-round is to make a “why I work safely” board with pictures of your employee’s loved ones. We will be sharing extra Toolbox Talks during Safe + Sound Week about the importance of hearing conservation and the proper fit of hearing protection. Take a few extra minutes during Safe + Sound Week to promote safety and health (at home, too).

IAMU has created two Toolbox Talks on workplace hearing issues. Workplace hearing loss is one of the most common work-related injuries. You can download the Toolbox Talks by clicking here.

From Lessons Learned and Toolbox Talks to webinars and workshops – we make every effort to make safety easier for you. If you have a safety suggestion, please send it to mmeade@iamu.org so that it can be shared. If you observe Safe + Sound Week in any way, please share what you did with us by sending a message to mmeade@iamu.org. IAMU will be providing appreciation gifts to all those who participate.

National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction May 6 – 10

Posted By IAMU, Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Falls are still the leading killer of workers doing construction activities and have been so for the past 20 years. To bring awareness to fall hazards and fall prevention, OHSA has partnered with other construction organizations and union groups to develop the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction.

For the past five years, employers, work organizations, unions, and other agencies have held conversations about correcting fall hazards and other workplace hazards to which employees have exposure.

This year, IAMU is taking part in the week-long stand-down by encouraging our members to conduct Toolbox Talks or other safety activities such as conducting safety equipment inspections, developing rescue plans, or discussing job specific hazards.

Here are links to two ladder-related Toolbox Talks:

IAMU has ordered 1,000 hardhat stickers for members’ teams who participate. If you are interested in receiving stickers for your team, you may contact IAMU at 515.289.1999.
