April Safety Theme

Workplace Exam & Bench Safety

  • Before you begin, look at the area closely for safety issues and ask, “Does this meet our standards?
  • Can everybody work safely?
  • If you see a safety issue and are able to correct it immediately, do so.
  • If you can’t correct a safety concern, notify your teammates, ask for assistance, and barricade the area with a tag noting the hazard.
  • Continue to watch for safety concerns while you work.
  • Think before you mark! When working on a bench, know where the safety line is and never cross it.
  • Be mindful of loose material along highwalls. Highwall conditions are ever-changing.
