Because the breakroom is a shared space, everyone needs to pitch in to make it pleasant. It's all about consideration... here are a few tips:
#1 IF YOU MAKE A MESS, CLEAN IT UP
Put your trash in the wastebasket, wipe up spills and crumbs.
#2 THE REFRIGERATOR IS FOR TEMPORARY STORAGE
Put your meal or snack there until you eat it, but don't forget about it... no one likes to see moldy food in the fridge!
#3 PUT A LABEL ON IT
Protect your food in the fridge by putting you name on it. If you bring a dish to share, use a label to let people know it's cool to dig in.
#4 KILL IT? REFILL IT
If you finish the coffee, make a fresh pot. If you use the last of anything, replace it... paper towels, napkins, creamer, sugar... be sure there's some for the next person.
#5 DON'T DITCH YOUR DIRTY DISHES
Wash them and put them away immediately after use.
#6 BE MINDFUL OF OTHERS.
You don't like it when your food gets mashed in the fridge or if someone cooks or opens a smelly dish. Your co-workers don't like it either. Think before you eat.
Make work areas safer by keeping floors clean and dry and minimizing clutter. If maintenance is required, be sure to cordon off the area with caution tape and/or cautionary signage and make sure repairs are made promptly.
Not only do wet floors increase the chance of slipping, areas that stay wet can grow mold, fungi and bacteria that cause infections. If you have wet floors, take these simple precautions:
Aisles & Passageways
Walkways should be clear for workers to safely walk through without dodging clutter, cords and other hazards. Here are a few things to look out for:
Provide proper ladders or step ladders for workers who need to climb. Do not use boxes, chairs stools or other makeshift devices to climb. Ladders need to be of adequate height so that employees are tempted to climb higher than the safety instructions recommend.
Call Twist! Our safety specialist will do a complimentary walk through of your office to point out any potential hazards that might be lurking.
Kinda funny how coffee - the #1 perk to keep office productivity percolating - is traditionally the biggest underachiever in the office.
Well, you don't need to be a barista to give your java some extra jump. Just a little thinking outside the coffee maker can take your brew from ho-hum to woo-hoo
It’s been awhile that changes were made to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Hazard Communications Standard, also known as the ‘right to know’ regulation. GHS stands for the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. It was developed by the United Nations and its goal is to standardize and harmonize the classification and labeling of chemicals to give universally understood warnings to users. The three major areas of impact are:
You now have less than a year to get in compliance with these regulations, and if you fail to do so you can be subject to fines and other penalties. According to OSHA, the deadline for compliance is June 1, 2016. Employers need to have all their workplace labeling procedures in place and the employees trained by this date in order to avoid problems.
The chemical labeling requirements are fairly specific so it is a good idea to learn about them as soon as possible.
The diagram below shows an example of the main elements of a GHS label.
To aid in compliance
Avery has created a new line of UltraDutyTM GHS chemical labels to simplify the labeling update process. As their name suggests, these labels are tough and can withstand chemicals, UV light, water, and extreme temperatures. The adhesive used on the labels is marine-grade, and the labels passed the 90-day sea-water submersion test. In addition, the labels are tear- and scuffresistant, so frequent use will not compromise their integrity.
Avery also makes the label customization and printing process easier and more efficient with its Design & Print GHS Online Wizard, which is provided at no cost. This online application allows users to create customized, professional GHS-compliant labels from templates and print them in-house with a desktop printer. Using Avery’s labels and the GHS Online Wizard not only guarantees that users will be compliant with OSHA’s GHS standards, but it also helps employees identify and track chemicals, and helps companies comply with other labeling standards.

Worker safety is always the highest priority on the job site and nothing protects on the job like hard hats. They’re essential to providing workers with protection from falling debris, low landing objects, and electrical hazards.
According to OSHA, a hard hat must be worn when working in areas where there is a potential for injury to the head from falling objects or when there is the risk of exposure to electrical conductors that can potentially contact the head.
Hard Hats are divided into two categories:
Type I and Type II
Type I Hard Hats are intended to reduce the force of impact resulting from a blow to the top of the head, such as from a hammer or nail gun falling from above.
Type II Hard Hats are intended to reduce the force of lateral impact resulting from a blow which may be received off-center from the side, or to the top of the head. This form of impact may result from contact with the sharp corner of a side beam for example. Type II hard hats are lined on the inside with a thick, high density foam and suspension.
