Short reminders about safety best practices can go along way in keeping employees injury free on the job. To make it easy for members to do this, MCIT has developed a series of short training talks called Quick Takes on Safety. Supervisors can use these scripts during regularly scheduled or informal meetings. Materials are provided to MCIT members at no cost as part of MCIT membership.
Quick Takes on Safety:
- Help keep safety in the forefront of employees’ minds.
- Demonstrate a commitment to safety on the part of the organization.
- Support a positive safety culture.
- Offer an opportunity for employees to ask questions, discuss safety topics and develop solutions to specific hazards while encouraging communication.
Each Quick Take includes the training overview and objectives; the script for the instructor, which can be modified to match a member’s particular situation and policies; session planning and review; attendance record; and employee handout.
Variety of Topics for Office, Shop and Off-site Work
The initial set of Quick Takes cover a number of safety issues that apply to office shop and off-site work, including deer-vehicle collisions, general ergonomics, ladder safety, workplace housekeeping, tick bite prevention and more.
Topics will be continually added to the collection. Check the Quick Takes on Safety page periodically for new materials.
