Raising Safety Awareness
My name is Jim Lanz, and I am the Safety Specialist and OSHA Outreach Trainer for Horizon Solutions. It’s my pleasure to officially kick off June National Safety Month. During the month, we’ll highlight different safety-related topics on our blog from the handling of hazardous materials to ensuring the proper Cal rated suit for the job, and many other safety topics─engage with us through your comments and questions.
Let’s Drive Down Preventable Injuries
Our mission is to help business owners and safety professionals build an enduring culture of safety that minimizes injuries and maintains a more protective and productive workplace. After all, fewer accidents mean fewer costs to a company, whether it’s through fines, workers compensation costs, or insurance premiums. While that is important, what I take great pride in as a Safety Specialist is the difference I try to make in the number of workplace injuries and deaths. Per the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are approximately 13,000 injuries daily that occur in the workplace. Isn’t that astonishing? And those injuries reach beyond just the victims. They affect their loved ones, family, friends, and co-workers. Horizon Solutions aims to improve that statistic and drive down those injuries.
Please join Horizon Solutions and thousands of organizations across the country as we work to raise awareness of what it takes to Keep Each Other Safe. You never know the injuries you may prevent or the life you might even save. And when you have safety questions, feel free to reach out to a Safety Specialist.
Are there areas of safety that could be improved in your facility? How will you promote a culture of safety in your company?
