Hearing the words “OSHA inspection” will make most U.S. service center managers cringe. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health legislation in the U.S. This past year, K&N Electric Motors was honored with an “invitation” from OSHA to provide a “tour” of our Spokane Valley location. You can’t imagine what went through our minds. Well, maybe you can. We were somewhat uneasy about what to expect, to say the least.

Prevent accidents: Safety program should include employees, equipment and facilities

  • March 2011

  • Article rating: No rating

During the Management Services Committee meeting held in St. Louis last fall, I volunteered to write a safety-related article about the importance of being observant in the workplace. As I started to work on the article, it became evident that my words were just a series of general observations to make sure employees and coworkers are thinking and practicing safety in the workplace.

Suddenly, it occurred to me because safety is SO important, the scope of the article should be expanded to cover more than making sure that employees practice safety. It should also provide tips on making sure that employees are working in a safe facility and use safe equipment, hence this more comprehensive article.

This article touches on:

  • Human nature and behavior
  • Getting into a bad habit
  • Different kind of safety inspection
  • Creating an inspection list
  • Formalizing the list
