OSHA requires employers with 10 or more employees to post a copy of OSHA’s Form 300A, which summarizes job-related injuries and illnesses recorded during the previous year. The summary must be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted. This happens each year between Feb. 1 and April 30. Employers, workers and OSHA use this information to evaluate the safety of a workplace, identify unsafe practices and conditions, and implement workplace policies and procedures to reduce and eliminate hazards.
Pay attention to weather alerts when conditions are ripe for the formation of tornadoes. Although twisters occur most frequently between April and July, they can happen throughout the year. The National Weather Service issues two types of alerts. A tornado watch means conditions are favorable for the development of funnel clouds and you should stay tuned. A warning means a tornado has been sighted or indicated on radar and you should seek shelter immediately.
If an alert is issued for your area, act quickly to save lives and reduce property damage.
And that’s smart safety!
