Oh yes, it's that time of year. It's time for the Safety Review!
We spent our weekly team meeting discussing the various safety measures we take here at Bridgeview to make sure we all have a safe and happy work environment. This include things like wearing gloves when working with materials that might slip or that might affect our skin, and wearing safety glasses when soldering. We identified the many various pieces of safety equipment we use around the shop, like cord strips for the floor and machines shields for our pneumatic tools, and we talked about the processes we include in building assemblies that keep everyone safe, like keeping our work area clean.
Safety is never the most exciting topic but we tried to keep the discussion light-hearted while also making sure that everyone understood the importance of the topic.
How do you keep your team members safe?
