IEC PORTAL: Hand Safety Resources & Winter Safety Material

A Safety Partnership Subject Matter Expert team was created to work on a number of safety initiatives over the last few months. These initiatives were chosen based on the 2015 Injury Reports which showed a large number of injuries were to hands and fingers as well as many injuries from slips, trips and falls in icy winter conditions.

As a result of this good work, resources have been made available to all Members through the IEC database Portal. These resources include:

  1. Hands & Fingers Safety Resources
  2. Winter Materials – slips, trips and falls

These materials would help enhance your safety programs already in place or reinforce the kinds of safety measures that would help reduce injuries in the future as we get back into winter conditions. Videos will soon be added that could be used in safety meetings and for other learning opportunities.

Special thanks to the plant personnel who have made this material available to all the of the Safety Partnership members!
