August 2015 Safety Brief

Friday, August 14, 2015

A Note from Leanne

In the various industries in which our Family of Companies work, falls from heights are one of the most abundant hazards that our employees face each and every day. And while fall protection is one of the most basic aspects of any safety program (ours included) and even though fall protection has become one of OSHA’s most marketed hazard awareness campaigns, falls from heights still account for approximately 35% of occupational fatalities and 12% of nonfatal occupational injuries in the US construction industry every year. 

August’s Safety Brief is focused on providing key information in support of protecting our employees from injuries sustained from falls while working at heights; like every issue, the goal is to educate our employees BEFORE an injury occurs. We hope you enjoy reading this month’s issue and that you consider how the information and solutions provided on fall protection apply to your day-to-day work environment. Keep it safe!

July 2015 Safety Brief

Wednesday, July 8, 2015

A Note from Leanne

Summer is here and that means family vacations, barbeques, water parks and a whole lot of other fun activities. Though summer is great because the warm temperatures allow us to wear shorts and participate in fun outdoor activities that are not typically available during the winter months, the hazards associated with summer heat can make working outdoors challenging and dangerous. 

Much of this month’s Safety Brief will focus on the various ways that we can protect ourselves from the hazards associated with working in the summer heat. There are tips on staying cool, fatigue management, shift rotation and other effective work practices. The most important thing to remember is this: heat stress is no joke. It can happen very quickly and it can do a lot of damage just as quickly. 

And even though we’ll focus on how to protect ourselves from heat stress at work, recognize that heat-related illnesses can happen at home too, so use this information to protect yourself and your families during the summer months. 

Have a great summer and stay safe!

June 2015 Safety Brief

Thursday, June 4, 2015

A Note from Leanne...

Every day, every month, and every year we spend valuable time discussing and focusing on employee safety. We have daily tailgate meetings, job hazard analyses, safety training, our monthly Safety Brief and a plethora of other ways to communicate and exercise the value of safety.

As we celebrate National Safety Month, I think the message of this Safety Brief encompasses the true value of our Best-in-Class culture. Everything we do to ensure a safe working en­vironment and teach the importance of working safely is to help provide our employees the opportunity to go home every night and enjoy our lives outside of work.

So as you read through this month’s Safety Brief, recognize that though safety is always a priority at MER, we should take this opportunity to place special focus on our safe behaviors this month; that focus and attention will ultimately allow us to enjoy what’s most important in our lives: all of the things we live for.

May 2015 Safety Brief

Tuesday, May 5, 2015

A Note from Leanne...

Through the years, as our safety culture has evolved and matured, we’ve taken several opportunities to reflect on various components of successful safety cultures. At this stage of our growth, we’re well beyond the good vs. bad safety culture discussion, so really, the question is this: what’s the difference between companies with good safety cultures and those with great safety cultures? 

There’s likely no one “right” answer to that question, but most companies that have found significant success in building their safety culture have done so by understanding the relationship between responsibility, authority and accountability with regards to individual safety and the impact that it has on the overall safety of a company.

One of the many highlights of MER’s Safety Program is our Confined Space Entry and Rescue Program.
