Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/30/2016 -- David Peacock, president of Hytrol recently discussed four practical ways to promote safety in manufacturing. Peacock recognizes that a manufacturing facility has the potential for a higher rate of accidents than working in an office cubicle. Safety is more than a metric to Hytrol— it is a guarantee that the company will get each employee home safely to their families and friends.
Peacock noted, "Taking steps toward your workers' safety is imperative to a thriving environment. It creates more loyal employees, improves quality, and reduces the costs of injuries. You want to take all the steps you can toward building a safe environment before an accident happens. These are four practical solutions that will move your workplace toward a safer environment."
1. Create a culture of communication. This is an important component of having a healthy workplace overall, but it's absolutely crucial when it comes to employee safety.
2. Maintain standardized work processes. A standard work process is a detailed breakdown of the tasks of a particular aspect of the work into elements which are sequenced organized and repeatedly followed.
3. Check for clean workspaces. One of the most important, most practical, and yet most overlooked safety practices is to keep a clean workspace.
4. Create a comfortable environment. Extreme heat and cold are distracting, so taking steps toward a comfortable environment allows employees focus on exactly what they need to focus on: working safely to make high quality products.
