ASA, Cintas Offer Webinar on 'Ensuring Safety in Every Corner'

Written by




Recommending that shops also offer lockers to store personal protective equipment (PPE), Adams defined this equipment as the head-to-toe PPE offerings available for daily use to prevent injuries.


“Providing a location where they can keep their gloves, helmets, safety glasses, etc. in one place and keeping it stocked on a regular basis shows that you care about your employees, which increases morale when they know that you care about their safety,” he said.


Automatic electronic defibrillators (AEDs) are crucial, and Adams suggests every shop invest in at least one of these machines, keeping it close enough that it can be accessed in the recommended one to three minutes. He explained that more than 400,000 Americans die each year from sudden cardiac arrest, the number one killer in the workplace, but over 80 percent of people who experience sudden cardiac arrest will survive if an AED is used within the first one to three minutes.


As his presentation concluded, Adams emphasized, “These preventative measures are just a few of the key points in which your business can save face and make your workplace a safe place for your employees and customers. This information is intended to help guide you in the proper direction for your business and is not intended as a substitute for any OSHA certification or class. Cintas recommends that at least one person from your shop take the full OSHA certification course in order to know all the rules and guidelines necessary to keep the shop up-to-date and to ensure everyone is aware of the safety guidelines.”


The webinar concluded with a question-and-answer session.
