- Focus On Safety & Our New Look
We’ve recently redesigned and developed Focus on Safety, the Hascall & Hall employee safety newsletter, and publish on a regular schedule to keep safety fresh in the minds of our employees—to keep them focused on safety in the workplace. Over the decades we’ve learned that an acute focus on safety is the point at which every one of our values converge-a point without which our superior craftsmanship, engineering, productivity, and efficiency cannot otherwise be brought sharply into view.
The newsletter serves several additional purposes. It informs our employees whenever there is any change made to OSHA regulations or other regulatory requirements that need to be implemented and observed. We sometimes issue the Focus on Safety newsletter when we want to shore up reinforcement of regulations and rules, along with sharing seasonal health and wellness messages with our staff.
Being aware of safety in the workplace means always having the correct equipment and information to execute the job safely—and taking the initiative to ask if one doesn’t know. It also means taking the time before any team member initiates work to perform a safety check and identify any potential hazards, a pause that can make all the difference. We require every staff member to take the proper precautions to protect him/herself. And it means closely adhering to established safety procedures and focusing one’s full attention on the job while working.
Many accidents occur because people are not fully cognizant of potential hazards, pay incomplete attention to their work, or fail to recognize how crucial safety is to their job or work-site. Our company provides safety training, safety programs and rules, and personal protective equipment to every member of our team. In turn, everyone is held fully accountable for safety—we expect our staff members to look out for themselves, one another, and everyone else present on the job-site.
One of our most fundamental safety responsibilities is to simply be aware of the need for taking proper safety precautions. This is the perspective from which we request our people to start each work-day. We demand that all team members enforce safety from the very first step on the job-site back to the shop where we house our equipment and materials.
Focus on Safety is Hascall & Hall’s forum for distributing key safety news and information, for keeping our staff apprised of everything they need to know to stay safe and to bring to fruition the finest of our work.
