Safety Topic of the Month - Bloodborne Pathogens

A bloodborne pathogen is caused by germs that can cause long lasting infection and disease in humans.  The people at greatest risk would be those most likely to come in contact with it on a regular basis.  The list below bears repeating.  See who is number 4 on the list?

· Health Care Workers

· Police Officers

· Fire & Rescue Personnel

· Custodians/Janitors

· Waste Handlers

· Craftsman

Please pay extra attention during Safety Training this month.  Knowing the potential hazard, and proper cleaning procedures will keep you safe when around blood or other bodily fluids.

Safety Topic of the Month - Hot Weather Safety

She’s back……...It’s that time of the year when things really start to heat up.  Please remember to heed these simple tips to keep you safe in the heat of summer.

* Drink plenty of water throughout the day whether you are thirsty or not.

* Wear lightweight, light colored and loose fitting clothing.

* Avoid caffeine as much as possible, heavy meals and alcohol whenever possible as well.

            * Stay out of the sun when you can, and always remember to use sunscreen.

Now go on out there and enjoy this muggy Arkansas summer!

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!
