There’s something reassuring about knowing that your pipe bending company is committed to safety – especially if they offer proof of that commitment. That’s the exact reason why we at Houston Pipe Benders formed an employee-driven safety committee. We know how important safety is –not only to our customers but to us and our employees as well – and made a decision to put our money where our mouth is.
The following are some extremely compelling reasons (not that we really needed to be convinced) we formed a safety committee and are sticking to it.
Employees Feel Engaged in the Safety Program
When employees and management come together to develop a safety program the entire company is involved in maintaining a safe working environment. When employees are involved, companies can feel confident that the people involved in the day-to-day activities will bring any safety concerns to light.
Safety is a Top Priority Company-Wide
When you combine a group of people with the knowledge and enthusiasm to promote safety, it’s only a matter of time before that goodwill is prevalent among the entire company.
The Risk of Injuries is Reduced
Safety committees, as part of an over-arching safety program, help identify where the potential hazards exist and offer ideas for preventing accidents. Committee members can inspect work stations and suggest specific ways to improve their safety conditions.
Employees are Well-Versed in Emergency Response
When the entire company recognizes safety as a top priority and is aware of potential hazards, employees can quickly identify dangerous situations and respond safely, efficiently and effectively so as to keep an emergency under control.
The benefits of safety committees are obvious; employees have a safe working environment allowing them to produce quality products. It’s a win-win for everybody!
