The Science Behind Safety Webinar: Crank Up Your Health and Safety Game

by Joe Geng on August 31, 2017

Comments (0)


Your brain absorbs 20,000 visual messages every day, some of them you’re aware of, like road signs and web ads, but many of them are subconscious, like understanding facial expressions or choosing your favorite brand of canned chili at the grocery store.

While it might not seem like much effort to process all of this information, in the background your brain is working overtime to process all of it.

How can you make sure that your safety message gets across with all of this competition?

 

Presenting The Science Behind Safety (On-Demand):

 

 
Superior Glove’s Training Specialist Delaney King joined host Matt Burtney to discuss the ‘why’ and ‘how’ behind the behaviors that put workers at risk and how to shift the perception of making risky choices.

Here were some of the highlights from The Science Behind Safety webinar:

 

1. Behaviors That Put Workers at Risk:

As humans we like to think that we’re invincible or that accidents that happen to other people could never happen to us. For instance, after hearing that a coworker hurt himself falling from a ladder and thinking that the person was careless or stupid.

But in many cases, it’s our sense of invincibility and being overconfident that puts us at risk or encourages us to take shortcuts.

Delaney polled the audience during the webinar to find out if anyone had ever sent a text while driving and nearly 75% of respondents who took the survey said yes.

Delaney made the case that as a society we know that texting and driving is dangerous, we tell our kids, our partners and our friends not to do it, but will still do it.

2. The Ripple Effect of an Injury:

The Ripple Effect of an injury is what Delaney referred to as what happens after an injury. Even though an injury may not seem serious, it can affect different people in different ways.

How an injury could affect your…

Personal Life:

  • Will it change your relationship with your spouse, kids, siblings or parents?

Work Life:

  • Will you need to be retrained?
  • Will you get to return to your old job?
  • Will you have to take time off for rehabilitation?

Mental Health:

  • Could you become depressed?
  • Can addiction occur from subscription drugs?
  • Will Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) be an after-effect of your accident?

Physical Health:

  • Will you be able to play sports?
  • Can you still engage in hobbies that you enjoy?
  • How will an accident affect your daily routines and activities?

3. The Difficulty of Healing a Hand Injury:

Due to the complexity of the hand and the way in which it moves, healing a hand injury can be difficult.

A hand injury may result in loss of:

  • Motion
  • Dexterity
  • Grip
  • Ability to perform everyday tasks

Even when employees are wearing gloves, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration said that 30% of workers who suffered hand injuries were wearing the wrong type of gloves.

 

Ready to Learn More?

There’s a taster of what to expect for cranking up your health and safety game, but you still have to learn:

  • Risk Gaps and how do reduce them
  • The benefits of a safety culture
  • How to incorporate this science into your workplace

This on-demand webinar also included a question and answer period that dove in deeper to the science.
