June is National Safety Month.
This year we founded National SAFER Workplace Day, an officially registered day (National Today) which occurs on the last Friday of June.
tec.nicum, the engineering services of division of the Schmersal Group, established the day to create awareness about the SAFER Workplace initiative, which promotes workplace safety, with a heightened focus on machine safety, to reduce the potential of near misses, accidents, and injuries. The SAFER acronym is based on the 5 fundamental steps used to conduct a risk assessment and stands for STOP, ASSESS, FORMULATE, EXECUTE, and REVIEW. These steps are fundamental to properly addressing any safety concerns so that a safe and efficient solution can be created and implemented.
We held a webinar on June 30 to introduce National SAFER Workplace day and provide some safety tips and background on this important topic. The webinar is available here.
