Based on ITI's course on the same topic, the five steps are:
1. Stay in Control.
Most injuries are caused by rushing and distraction. Staying in control means staying focused and taking time to complete a task safely.
2. Take Care and Look.
An alert worker is a safe worker. Train employees to proactively look out for hazards in their work environment at all times.
3. Ensure a Good Grip.
Whether lifting a package, climbing a ladder, or exiting a vehicle, maintaining a good grip with both hands will help prevent falls and dropped cargo.
4. Plan for Success.
Simple steps like warming up before physical activity, wearing personal protective equipment and restraining loose clothing will help workers stay safe.
5. Strains Mean Pain.
If an activity causes strain on the joints or muscles, it's more likely to lead to injury.
By training drivers in good injury prevention habits now, you can save a lot of time, money and pain (literally!) for years to come.
