As 2020 comes to a close, this year posed several new challenges to creating a safe working environment for every employee. The safety department has worked hard to keep employees safe as new protocols were made to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. With the addition of these new protocols, it was important to not let other safety standards diminish. To further develop the safety culture of ICG, weekly safety trainings are now available online.
Prior to Covid, employees met each week to learn a new safety topic. The topics would teach everything from How to Report Close Calls to How to Prepare for Hurricanes on Job Sites. With the help of a new learning management system, we can assign a safety topic each week for employees to complete. At the end of each assignment there are several questions to make sure that the topic is understood before the assignment is marked complete. Utilizing this technology has allowed safe social distancing, while employees are still able to learn a new safety topic each week.
