Be A Role Model

Have you ever worked with someone who inspired you? A hardworking person can have a powerful influence on his or her team, especially when he or she is working with someone who is new to the job or to the company. As the co-worker of a new employee, consider yourself the most important role model during his or her first few weeks. Your attitude and your respect of policies and safety procedures could save his or her life!

Be a Safety Mentor

You know that the workplace is full of potential hazards. At Allentuck Landscaping Inc, we have stressed the importance of doing your job the safe way, and we’ve given you a wealth of knowledge about the risks of the job and ways to stay safe. When you are working around others, especially if they are new to our workplace, it is your turn to share that knowledge to protect them and yourself.

It may take a while for new employees to adjust and feel like they fit in on the job. Those that have never held a job before or were employed by a firm with a weak safety program will need considerable safety instruction and leadership. While managers will attempt to train them in workplace safety as thoroughly as possible, employees will naturally look to you for advice and information. Their early impressions of the way you value safety will set the stage for their future work habits.

Lead by Example

In this important transition time, your actions will speak louder than your words. If you are careless, you demonstrate to a new employee that safety is not important at Allentuck Landscaping Inc. If you try to impress others by wearing jewelry or loose clothing that can be hazardous on the job, you are ultimately putting new employees that are learning from and imitating you in danger.

On the other hand, some new employees may come to Allentuck Landscaping Inc from firms that emphasize safety just as much as we do. In that case, their personal respect for you will grow when they see that you care about workplace safety just as much as they do.

You are aware that debilitating accidents are a reality in the workplace. Be sure that your new co-workers are aware of the danger, too. Doing so will keep everyone at our worksite safe.

Think again of that co-worker who has inspired you, and do your best to keep him or her in mind when you are working with new employees. Everyone will be safer when you make a good impression on a new employee, so do your part. Now is your chance to inspire!

Sea un buen ejemplo

¿Alguna vez trabajó con alguien que lo inspiró? Una persona que trabaja mucho puede ser una poderosa influencia en su equipo, especialmente si trabaja con alguien que es nuevo en el trabajo o la empresa. Como compañero de trabajo del empleado nuevo, considérese el modelo a seguir más importante en sus primeras semanas. Su actitud y su respeto por las políticas y los procedimientos de seguridad podrían salvar su vida.

Sea un mentor de la seguridad

Usted sabe que el lugar de trabajo está lleno de posibles riesgos. En Allentuck Landscaping Inc, hemos enfatizado la importancia de hacer el trabajo de forma segura y le hemos brindado muchos conocimientos sobre los riesgos que existen en el trabajo y las formas de mantenerse a salvo. Cuando trabaje en torno a otras personas, especialmente, si son nuevos en el lugar de trabajo, es su turno compartir dicho conocimiento para protegerlos y protegerse usted mismo.

Puede llevar un tiempo hasta que los empleados nuevos se adapten y se sientan cómodos en el trabajo. Aquellos que nunca han tenido un trabajo antes o fueron empleados en una empresa con un programa de seguridad sin fuerza necesitarán una considerable instrucción relacionada con la seguridad y el liderazgo. Si bien los gerentes intentarán capacitarlos en cuanto a la seguridad en el lugar de trabajo lo más completamente posible, los empleados lo buscarán a usted naturalmente para solicitarle consejos e información. Estas impresiones tempranas del modo que usted valora la seguridad establecerán las bases para sus futuros hábitos laborales.

Lidere mediante el ejemplo

En esta importante etapa de transición, sus acciones tendrán más valor que sus palabras. Si es descuidado, le demostrará a los empleados nuevos que la seguridad no es importante en Allentuck Landscaping Inc. Si trata de impresionar a los demás usando joyas o ropa suelta que pueden ser peligrosas para el trabajo, en última instancia, estará poniendo en peligro a los empleados nuevos que están aprendiendo de usted e imitándolo.

Por otra parte, algunos empleados nuevos pueden llegar a Allentuck Landscaping Inc de empresas que enfatizan la seguridad tanto como lo hacemos nosotros. En ese caso, su respeto personal por usted aumentará cuando vean que usted se preocupa por la seguridad del lugar de trabajo tanto como ellos.

Tenga en cuenta que los accidentes debilitantes son una realidad en el lugar de trabajo. Asegúrese de que sus nuevos compañeros de trabajo sean conscientes del peligro también. Hacer mantendrá la seguridad de todos los empleados del lugar de trabajo.

Piense nuevamente en aquel compañero de trabajo que lo inspiró a usted, y haga lo que más pueda para tenerlo en cuenta al trabajar con empleados nuevos. Todos los empleados estarán más seguros si usted causa una buena impresión en el empleado nuevo, de modo que colabore. ¡Esta es su posibilidad de brindar inspiración!
