In an effort to identify opportunities for improvement, Jamar recently conducted a thorough analysis of our injuries over the last 10 years. As a result of our findings, we are placing a greater emphasis on what we are calling our “Focus Four.” These are the four areas that Jamar employees have consistently experienced injuries, both in frequency and severity.
- Eye injuries
- Hand injuries
- Safe Grinder Use
- Manual Material Handling
This year we’ve modified our safety observation program to gather additional and detailed information. We increased visibility in the workforce with “Focus Four” hard hat decals, added job site signage and additional training.
At Jamar, we believe it is everyone’s role to be a leader in safety and shape the positive safety culture of our company.
