DO YOU KNOW SAFETY ?   

A Carpenter knows how to install a floor, an Ironworker knows how to erect steel, a Finisher knows how to hand trowel a surface, and workers in other trades know how to apply their skills, but how many of them "KNOW" safety? 

Here are some guidelines to help you learn safety: 

KNOW YOUR JOB.  Know what your job involves, what tools you need for the job, and exactly how it should be done safely. 

KNOW YOUR TOOLS.  Know to use them safely and how to spot unsafe, worn out tools. 

KNOW YOUR JOB SAFETY RULES.  Job safety rules are designed to protect you from injury. 

KNOW YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES.  Know your responsibilities to your family, your employer, yourself and co-workers. 

KNOW YOUR HAZARDS.  Be alert to all potential dangers around you and your co-workers. 

KNOW YOUR SAFEGUARDS.  Learn what protects you and be sure you use them. 

KNOW YOUR PENALTIES.  The penalties for being careless may include losing your job, and possibly causing yourself or a co-worker pain and suffering. 

KNOW YOUR REWARDS.  Know the advantages of working safely.   

KNOW THE REMEDIES.  Be prepared to do the right things in an emergency.  Correct hazards to avoid accidents.  Think before you act.
