– Proper training is one of the best ways to ensure the safety of your associates. You should be regularly identifying safety concerns, creating new safety goals around those concerns and developing practical activities to teach safety procedures.

-In light of recent events, keeping your workplace clean and following proper social distancing measures

– Do an audit of the machines and equipment that may cause the most injury. Ones to always check are saws, presses and plastics machinery. Then create safeguards if anything is deemed unsafe.
