At Kaloutas we take safety seriously. We go above and beyond with employee safety training, certifications and equipment to ensure our staff is protected on the jobsite. We hope you value workplace safety as much as we do, which is why we wanted to point out 8 of the most common facility safety hazards and help you avoid them.
Put a Stop to These 8 Safety Hazards
Falls- Workplace falls are commonplace and sometimes deadly. Avoid them by ensuring all your safety equipment is up to code and your railings are properly painted and maintained. Take a look at our facility maintenance plans to see how we can help.
Fires- Fires break out for any number of reasons. The key lies not only in fire prevention, but in being prepared as well. Clear exit strategies, floor striping and fireproof coatings can save lives and prevent extensive damage.
Chemical Hazards- From commonplace cleaning products to industrial and lab chemicals, chemical hazards can be prevented with proper training and safety gear. Ensure your employees are protected with a clear understanding of the chemicals they’re working with.
Poorly Maintained Machinery- When industrial machinery isn’t cleaned regularly or properly maintained, it becomes a hazard to everyone in the building. With regular industrial cleaning and degreasing from Kaloutas you can drastically reduce this common workplace hazard.
Inadequate Training- They say that knowledge is power, and we would add that knowledge is safety as well. Each workplace is unique, so ensure your employees and staff are extensively trained about the chemicals, machinery and processes they are working with.
Biological Hazards- You don’t have to work in a high tech lab or farm to come into daily contact with biological hazards. If you work with people, you work with germs, not to mention mold. Ensure your facility is equipped with handwashing stations, and is regularly cleaned and inspected.
Clutter & Disorganization- Overstacked boxes and obstructed walkways can result in fatal conditions in the event of a fall or an emergency. Ensure your facility is well organized with clearly marked walkways and bins, check out our striping paint services to learn more.
Stress & Ergonomic Hazards- Stress leads to mistakes and poor working conditions lead to injury. Adequate lighting, fresh paint and ergonomic interventions can boost morale as well as your bottom line.
