June is National Safety Month, and “Safety first, then teamwork” is my favorite motto. Providing a safe work environment not only decreases risks for accidents and the dreaded workers’ comp claims, but it boosts morale as well. Employees appreciate having the proper safety gear available to do their job well, and providing it for them is a lot cheaper than insurance claims.
Your employees’ hands and eyes are the most valuable tools in your company, so this week we’re highlighting gloves and safety glasses. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 4,930 various occupational injuries to the hands and fingers in 2009, and 27,920 occupational injuries to the eyes. Reduce the risk of injury to these precious tools by providing the proper hand and eye protection.
As you can see, there is a wide variety on the market to choose from. Let our knowledgeable sales force guide you towards choosing the correct hand and eye protection for your employees. Regardless of your industry, we have what you need to get the job done safely.
