Join Jim Rogers for an in-depth discussion in this video An example of planning for safety, part of Construction Industry Weekly.
- Welcome back to my Construction Industry Weekly series,…I'm Jim Rogers and last week I started discussing…safety issues in construction…and I said that we need to start focusing efforts…on teaching our craft workers…how to perform their tasks safely.…Now I wanna give you an example of what I mean by this.…Let's take an issue like hazardous chemical communication.…We call this HazCom in the US…and I can't tell you how many HazCom training sessions…I've seen and sat through…that give all kinds of information about the HazCom rules…and talk about how these chemical hazards…have to be communicated to workers…and where workers can find that information…and that's all great.…
But most of them fail to actually get to the basic point…of teaching that worker how to use a specific chemical…safely in their job at their company.…So as managers, I want to encourage you to start there.…Look at the training your company is using.…Is it generic?…Does it just cover the rules?…If so, there's probably an opportunity…or actually a need for improvement.…
