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: Fatigue
Fatigue is the state of feeling very tired, weary or sleepy resulting from insufficient sleep, prolonged mental or physical work or extended periods of stress or anxiety. Repetitive tasks can intensify feelings of fatigue. Fatigue can be described as either acute or chronic. Acute fatigue results from short-term sleep loss or from short periods of heavy physical or mental work. The effects of acute fatigue are of short duration and usually can be reversed by sleep and relaxation. Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a debilitating disorder characterized by extreme fatigue or tiredness that doesn't go away with rest and can't be explained by an underlying medical condition.
