Tuesday, July 9, 2024

Provides 10 Tips for Creating a Safety-Focused Work Culture


McConnellsburg, PA (July 9, 2024) — JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation business [NYSE:OSK] and a leading global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) and telehandlers, has released its new whitepaper 10 Tips for Creating a Safety-Focused Work Culture that can help contractors implement strategies and actions create a safety-first culture on their job sites. Topics addressed in the paper include storm safety, trip hazards, lone workers, hydration, hearing protection, ergonomics, mental health, heat, PPE and wearables.

Despite being around since the Chernobyl disaster in the 80s, creating a “culture of safety” has become a buzz phrase in the industry with safety professionals and modern business leaders lately, especially as construction work ramps up during the summer months. Adopting a safety culture can be achieved within any organization, of any size, but it cannot be created or completed overnight. It is a journey of continuous improvement that enhances productivity. 

In this whitepaper, JLG offers valuable insights and best practices that companies looking to adopt a safety culture on job sites can use immediately. Interested in learning more? The 10 Tips for Creating a Safety-Focused Work Culture whitepaper is now available for download on JLG® #DirectAccess. For a free copy, click here
