Look Out For Dangers!

GPS challenge of the week… LOOK OUT FOR DANGERS! It is easy to become complacent in familiar surroundings. For that reason, please develop a safe habit of looking for existing or new potential hazards. Check your workstation for exposed electrical cords or other tripping hazards. Shut file cabinet drawers when not in use. Store tools, equipment and materials properly to prevent falling or sharp edges. Stack materials to prevent sliding, falling or collapsing. Wear personal protective equipment. Avoid distracted walking. Never remove machine guarding. And above all, pay attention during safety training. The more often you identify existing or potential hazards the better equipped you are to create a safer work environment.

If you experience or see a safety concern on your assignment, please contact our Safety Hotline at 803-760-1441 or contact your local GPS office. If you are injured on your assignment, please call MEDCOR at 1-800-775-5866 then contact your local GPS office.
