Safe Driving is NO Accident!

     DOW’s employees are our most valuable asset.  That’s why our Safety Topic of the Month is directed at them and for that matter, all of us.  We’ve all been taught how to drive safely, but unfortunately, we get a little laxed with some of the basics like yielding, tailgating, and being a patient and courteous driver.  Trust me, I know how difficult it is to follow the rules of road etiquette, but it’s always in our best interest to stay cool, calm and collected.

     There are also the most important rules of the road which we all need to get better with. Talking on the telephone, texting while driving and not wearing a seat belt.  The first two are MAJOR distractions that can, and too often do, result in serious traffic accidents and sometimes those accidents can be fatal.  The seat belt not being fastened just quadruples the risk every time you answer a call or decide you just can’t wait to text someone back. 

     When driving on the job, you are a moving billboard for DOW Building Services.  Always be courteous and protect your reputation and the reputation of the company you work for....DOW.  While you’re at it, follow those  rules and stay safe out there!

Safety Topic of the Month - Hazard Recognition

     A safety hazard is something that has the potential to cause an injury. It can range in severity from a minor scratch or bruise to broken bones, internal injuries or even death. Injuries are usually the result of accidents.  A prime example would be a fall due to a wet floor.

     A health hazard is something that has the potential to cause a negative health effect where the health of the worker is impaired. An adverse health effect might be a minor skin rash, or it might be a life-threatening disease like lung cancer. That’s why you’ll never see a skull and crossbones on any chemicals at DOW Building Services.

     Janitors like us can come in contact with all kinds of hazardous situations every day.  What’s important is that you keep yourself safe and all the people you come in contact with safe and accident free too. Thanks for doing your part this month to promote a healthy and safe workplace at DOW.

August, a month of change............

    August is a transition month, when most people’s summer vacations are over and it’s back to normal so they say….. School starts this month, kids and parents get back in their usual routine, and soon it will be September.  One thing hasn’t changed yet and that’s the heat and humidity.  So remember to please keep an eye out for your elderly friends and neighbors and don’t forget your pets and other vulnerable critters. 

    The heat can still be dangerous, so don’t let it get to you or those you love.
