L&H Industrial’s new behavior based safety program has been designed specifically by the company’s safety director, Tyler McLaughlin, and is customized to fit the distinctive culture of the company. “Taking the High Road to Safety”, incorporates three aspects of safety including self-observations, interactions and audits.
The first part of the program, self-observations, includes five steps: stop and look over the job, look, listen and assess hazards, assess the consequence and finally plan to remove the hazard.
Secondly, interactions are performed by managers and supervisors. An interaction is simply talking to an employee about health, safety, environmental, DOT and unsafe vs. safe acts and conditions. When employees, managers and supervisors interact on a regular basis, safety is always thought about first and is the foundation of what L&H does every day.
The third and final aspect of the program includes safety audits. Shop and field audits are performed using iAuditor, a software program ran from iPads used to identify violations related to L&H Health and Safety Standards as well as OSHA, DOT and MSHA regulations. Photos and notes of the violation can be taken on site and automatically updated to the iAuditor software so the issues can be fixed.
L&H Industrial is committed to safety, keeping everyone safe in our shops and facilities and in the field with our customers.
“No matter where our employees may be working, this program helps them take the high road to safety, making safe decisions and actions in all that they do.” – Tyler McLaughlin, L&H Industrial Health and Safety Director.
