By now we have all watched the news footage of US Air Flight 1549. As a frequent flyer and one that has been on board my fair share of plane rides that were not exactly perfect, I have a fond appreciation for that crew, many thanks to all of you for what you did to ensure the safety of every passenger.
The safety of every passenger on this flight did not just happen. A plane going down is probably one of the frightening experiences for any of us. The crew on this flight reacted in a manner that shows the importance of not just learning the safety procedures, but actually reacting to them as if you had to do that on every flight. That does not just happen. While some of our businesses are not in a position to have the lives of 150 plus people in their hands, many of us have at least one, even if it is just yourself. Safety training is taught at all levels. Meetings are held, videos are shown and employees are required to say they were at the meeting and saw the video. If that is where your safety training stops, shame on you!
Safety should be a habit for all of us. Safe behaviors need to be reinforced daily so that they become habits. When that happens, your employees will react like the crew of Flight 1549 did. They will immediately know what to do and how to do it. So, the next time you have a thought about a safety incentive or recognition program and your mind goes to “yeah, but I have no budget for that”, think again.
Safety incentive and recognition does pay, it is a worthy investment and the crew of Flight 1549 proved that yesterday.

Hand Safety Tips

The number of workers doesn’t use their gloves when it fails to offer enough ability for the important task. Dexterity is quite crucial while performing many tasks, such as working with little parts, or when working in cramped conditions. The real issue is simply the glove – it doesn't give the required dexterity to perform these tasks, so laborers remove their gloves, making themselves vulnerable. Read more…See More

How to Turn Your Cyber Incident Response (Plans from Blah) into Fantastic?

Let us face it. A cyber incident could happen to any organization that has a computer system that is connected to the Net. Well, the next question is, does such an organization exist? Almost no organization in today’s world, no matter of what size and which part of the world it could be in, can function without a cyber system. So, this means that simply any organization is vulnerable to a cyberattack and every organization should have a cyber incident response plan in place.The simplest way to…See More

What is Service Level Agreement and what needs to be included in a SLA?

Today's world is different from the one our previous generations grew up in. Business activities have shot up in multifold ways. As business grows, activities required to make them run grow, too. The growth of the provision of services has added a new dimension to business. When business is merely about purchasing goods from a manufacturer or distributor and selling them at the retail level; there is no implicit or explicit, written agreement per se about the transactions made between the buyer…See More

There is some misunderstanding as to its provisions, though.The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which is governed by the Wage and Hour Division (WHD) agency, is an attempt by the federal government to augment the policy of leaves for certain kinds of employees. It offers select employees of covered employers to take unpaid leave for certain purposes for…See More
