Did you know that June is National Safety Month? The purpose is to bring increased awareness of the importance of safety, and to promote a safe working culture within your facility. So with that in mind, you might be asking yourself, hey, how can I bump up the safety awareness in my plant?
Well, here are some good ways that you can help celebrate National Safety month and build that safety minded culture you need for your plant.
Using L2L as your EHS software system, you can do this easily with a few of these ideas
I’m sure your creative team could come up with many more ideas to help promote safety and bring awareness to help create the culture you want.
Now that you have the promotion in place, you need to make sure you can capture and manage the safety behavior you're wanting to build on and encourage. You're probably also looking for good ways to track safety activities in your plant.
To do this, I recommend you break down Safety into two groups, and list the ways you want to manage your Safety system. Start by thinking about proactive versus reactive.
People who build the product need to have their EHS software system work together seamlessly with the vehicles that track the other issues they deal with every day. Hopefully they don’t need the reactive safety tools very often. But when they do, they need to know right where to go: the same place they enter a quality issue or log a downtime event. Don’t mess around and have 15 different systems managing all the processes on the floor.
In my 35 plus years in the workforce, I've had my share of accidents, including stitches and broken bones. Hey now, before you pass judgment thinking I'm unsafe, I like to consider myself a hard working individual who has had some bad luck. Or not paying attention. But I have worked in farming, in a weld shop, and have been in a manufacturing plant for a very long time. I'm guessing you already know those are three of the top 10 most dangerous jobs in the world. However, those all happened before the place I was working had a Lean Execution System (LES) to manage the all the event abnormalities, including EHS incidents like I've just described in this article.
Is your EHS software tied into your plant's Lean Execution System? If not, you may want to look at a LES system like L2L to help bring all the information together in one spot and be simple to use.
And so, don't just focus on safety for the month of June. You must drive the safety culture you want all year long and take safety seriously. Get in the game! Make sure your plant has the system they need and like to use.
You have seen the ads on TV, "To stay safe! We are all in this together." And I guess those messages help. But I do know what works is JFDI (just focus and do it!).

Predictive maintenance is the endlessly innovative, spry entrepreneurial cousin of reactive and preventive maintenance....
What makes L2L so unique is the fact that the product was developed by real manufacturing users. People that truly understand the day-to-day issues and concerns that drive the production floor.
