Safety in the workplace is very important. Workplace safety means following basic rules. These rules can keep you from getting hurt or even killed on the job.

It is important to talk about the safety rules with your supervisor. Ask questions. Make sure you understand the safety rules. Workers at Woodstock Companies see these rules posted in the lunchroom, bathrooms, locker rooms, and work areas.

Safety at Woodstock Companies

  Exits             Keep all exits clear. Keep doors unlocked. 

                       Do not place boxes or trash in front of doors.

  Gear             All workers must wear earplugs and safety                                 glasses on the work floor.

                Supervisors will hand out protective gear at the                  start of each shift. Workers must put on the                        gear before turning on machines.

 

  First Aid       There is an emergency first aid kit next to the                            main stairway on all floors.

  Fire Safety   There are fire extinguishers and alarm pulls at 

                       every exit and in the lunchroom. There is                                   absolutely NO SMOKING on the                                                 manufacturing floor.

 

Ask about the safety rules at your job. Following the safety rules will keep you safe at work. They will help you from getting hurt at work. Tell your coworkers to follow the safety rules. Following the safety rules will help your coworkers from getting hurt at work too.
