Educational Workplace Athlete Handouts
If the employees at your company use their bodies to earn a living, then they are what we call workplace athletes. They need to be educated and trained accordingly. Download a collection of one-page educational handouts to teach the workplace athletes under your care to adopt good work practices and healthy lifestyle habits.
The Value of Motivation in Safety Efforts
Safety, like other aspects of business, is dependent on the performance of workers. It has been said that performance is equal to ability times motivation (P=AM). Increasing ability is an ongoing issue that should not be ignored. But, if ability can be enhanced or completely nullified by this multiplier called “motivation”, “influence” or “drive”, then it should be a strategic goal of every safety effort.
