6 consejos para mejorar su postura y su salud en general en el trabajo

By | Tips for Job Seekers | No Comments

¡Hola!

Durante el mes de Mayo queremos enforcarnos en la postura en el lugar de trabajo. Muchas personas permanecen de pie durante un mínimo de 8 horas durante su turno.
Aquí hay 6 consejos para mejorar su postura y su salud general en el trabajo.

  1. Cambie de posición durante el día. Si le dan descansos durante el día, use esos horarios programados para sentarse.
  2. Use zapatos cómodos que le brinden apoyo. Ya sea que deba usar botas de trabajo, zapatos con punta de acero o tenis, asegúrese de que sean del tamaño correcto en longitud, anchura y que tengan arcos de apoyo. Asegúrese de que se abrochen firmemente para que apoyen todo el pie. Las suelas gastadas y los desgarros en el zapato no solo son un peligro para la seguridad, sino que pueden provocar dolores corporales.
  3. Entrenamientos básicos. El fortalecimiento de su núcleo apoya la columna y la postura de forma natural. Fortalecer su núcleo ayuda a mantener el equilibrio y también mejorará su rango de movimiento y fuerza general. Un núcleo fuerte alivia la presión sobre los músculos y las articulaciones, lo que lo hace menos fatigado al final del día.
  4. Calcetines de compresión. Los calcetines de compresión son ​​para quienes están de pie todo el día. Ayudan a mejorar su circulación y reducen la hinchazón en los pies y pueden minimizar el dolor de pie.
  5. Estírese antes y después del trabajo. Los estiramientos simples pueden prevenir las distensiones musculares. Este breve video ayuda en los estiramientos para evitar tensiones en el lugar de trabajo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qm-nGLYBelY
  6. Comer más saludable y mantenerse hidratado. Comer más sano en general, mejora los niveles de energía, reduce la fatiga y previene los calambres musculares. Mantenerse hidratado durante todo el día es crucial para su cuerpo en general, pero también evitará que los músculos se contraigan o tengan espasmos.

6 Tips to Better Your Posture and Overall Health at Work

By | Tips for Employers, Tips for Job Seekers | No Comments

Espanol

Hello!

During the month of May we want to focus on posture in the workplace.  Many people stand for a minimum 8 hours during their shift. 
Here are 6 tips to better your posture and overall health at work.

  1. Change positions throughout the day. If you are given breaks during the day use those scheduled times to get off of your feet.
  2. Wear comfortable, supportive shoes. Whether you are required to wear work boots, steel toed shoes or tennis shoes make sure they are the correct size in length, width and have supportive arches.  Make sure they lace up tightly to support the entire foot.  Worn down soles and tears in the shoe are not only a safety hazard but can lead to body aches. 
  3. Core workouts. Strengthening your core supports your spine and posture naturally.  Strengthening your core helps maintain balance and will also improve your range of motion and overall strength.  A strong core relieves pressure on your muscles and joints, making you less fatigued at the end of the day.
  4. Compression socks. Compression socks are meant for those who are on their feet all day long.  They help improve your circulation and reduce swelling in the feet and can minimize foot pain.
  5. Stretch before and after work. Simple stretches can prevent muscle strains. This short video assists in stretches to prevent strains in the workplace. youtube.com/watch?v=Qm-nGLYBelY
  6. Eat healthier and stay hydrated. Eating healthier in general improves energy levels, reduces fatigue, and prevents muscle cramping. Staying hydrated throughout the day is crucial for your body as a whole but will also prevent muscles from seizing/spasming.

La importancia de los protectores de máquinas

By | Tips for Job Seekers | No Comments

¡Hola!

Solo un recordatorio amistoso sobre la seguridad de las máquinas.

Las máquinas pueden ayudar a mejorar la eficiencia de la producción en el lugar de trabajo. Sin embargo, las partes móviles de las máquinas, bordes afilados y superficies calientes también pueden causar lesiones graves en el lugar de trabajo, como dedos o manos aplastados, amputaciones, quemaduras o ceguera.

Las salvaguardias son esenciales para proteger a los trabajadores de lesiones. Debe asegurar cualquier pieza, función o proceso de la máquina que pueda causar lesiones. Cuando la operación de una máquina pudiera resultar en una lesión de contacto al operador o a otras personas en el área, el riesgo debe ser eliminado o controlado.

¡Si observa una máquina sin vigilancia o una máquina que parece no ser segura, comuníquese con Forge y avísenos de inmediato! ¡Manténgase a usted y a los demás a salvo! ¡Podrías prevenir una lesión!

The Importance of Machine Guards

By | Tips for Job Seekers | No Comments

Espanol

Hello!

Just a friendly reminder about Machine Safety.

Machines can help improve production efficiency in the workplace. However, their moving parts, sharp edges, and hot surfaces can also cause serious workplace injuries such as crushed fingers or hands, amputations, burns, or blindness. Safeguards are essential to protect workers from injury. Any machine part, function, or process that might cause injury should be safeguarded. When the operation of a machine may result in a contact injury to the operator or others in the area, the hazard should be removed or controlled.

If you witness an unguarded machine or a machine that appears to be unsafe, please reach out to Forge and let us know immediately. 

Keep yourself and others safe!  You could be preventing an injury!

Do you have a safety tip you would like to share with our team?  Feel free, at any time, to reply with a tip!  We would love to hear from you! In fact, we will reward you with a free gift for helping out!

Forge – Your Lucky Charm in Recruitment

By | Tips for Employers | No Comments

“A great employee is like a four-leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have.” – Tammy Cohen

It takes a decent amount of luck and a good set of eyes to find a four-leaf clover in what feels like an endless sea of green; sea of green of course meaning the applications received for your open position.

March is Workplace Eye Wellness Month

By | Tips for Job Seekers | No Comments


Espanol

Hello!

Did you know that March is Workplace Eye Wellness Month?

Common causes of workplace eye injuries are flying debris like metal pieces or glass, tools, chemicals, harmful radiation, and eye strain due to digital devices. Most injuries occur when eye protection is worn but it is improper or ill-fitting and when eye protection is not worn at all.  Luckily, almost all workplace eye injuries are preventable with the use of proper safety eyewear.

To prevent an eye injury at work, adhere to the following tips:

  • Know the eye safety hazards at work. Not sure?  Ask your supervisor.
  • Eliminate hazards before starting work. Use machine guarding, work screens or other engineering controls.
  • Use proper eye protection that correctly fits such as non-prescription or prescription safety glasses, goggles, face shields, welding helmets or full-face respirators.
  • Never remove your eye protection and rub your eye with a dirty hand or glove.  Always remove gloves and wash hands prior to touching your eyes or any part of your face.

Do you have a safety tip you would like to share with our team?  Feel free, at any time, to reply with a tip!  We would love to hear from you! In fact, we will reward you with a free gift for helping out!

The Forge Safety Team is here to help you!  We always want to keep you and other employees of Forge safe while on the job.  This means we often need your help in communicating anything you feel is unsafe.
