At Osmose, we prefer to talk about our safety culture rather than our safety program. A safety program implies a set of rules that people are required to follow, often reluctantly. A safety culture implies that safety is a way of life at Osmose. It is how we think and how we approach our jobs every day, not because that's what is required, but because that is who we are.
Over the past 20 years, we have worked diligently to establish a culture of safety by making safety an integral part of everything we do. And as you will see in many of the statistics below, we have achieved excellent results and we will do everything in our power to ensure this culture and our safety performance persist.
Monthly Safety Tip: Staying Warm in Cold Weather
Working in a cold environment can create problems for your entire body. Heat can be lost from the body faster than it is created, and exposed body parts may start to freeze. While working in a cold environment, get layers of insulation between you and the environment, and remove layers when you get warmer. You need a clothing system that allows you to shed layers quickly and easily before you get damp from perspiration. Several thinner garments will serve this purpose better than one bulky overcoat.
