8 Facility Safety Hazards & How to Resolve Them

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.
