Working Safely

Jason Baggett, Tennessee Risk Management Trust

September, 2015

The collective staff of NGU, SEC, and TNRMT want to thank you, the TNRMT Members, for working so hard to improve the safety of your workplace. We've seen real improvements in safety with several members over the last several months, and we are excited to see that continue. Safety must continue to be a #1 priority for each and every one of us, whether at work or at home!

It is always a good idea to review some common sense safety precautions once or twice a year. Listed below you will find some safety tips and suggestions to help ensure not only your safety but the safety of your co-workers as well. These common sense safety tips are also great to "take home" with you.

Back Injury Prevention

Chemical Safety

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Electrical Work

If all of us were on a constant look out for hazards and corrected them when we saw them, we would greatly reduce the chances of anyone being injured. If you observe a possible hazard in your workplace, please take action! Correct the situation if possible or alert your supervisor immediately so the problem can be fixed. It will take each and every one of us doing our part to ensure that we all go home safely at the end of the day.

We must all work together as a team to achieve our safety goals in the workplace. Employees at all levels should take responsibility and initiative for improving safety. Successful safety efforts can change the culture of your workplace. If you have any suggestions or questions, please do not hesitate to contact your supervisor or loss control consultant. The risk management team looks forward to working with everyone in order to improve safety in the workplace. Your willingness to work with us is greatly appreciated. If you would like to schedule safety training or have any safety concerns please feel free to contact the loss control team at either one of the numbers below. We hope you all have a great and safe year.
