The scent of freshly baked pumpkin pies, the sound of leaves crunching beneath boots, and the twinkling lights of upcoming holidays — the last quarter of the year is often the most anticipated and festive. As businesses gear up for the fall and holiday season, it's essential to ensure that workplace safety is at the forefront of preparations, especially with the influx of holiday orders and increased workloads. At Massachusetts Precision Coating, the powerhouse behind the Respire brand, we understand the essence of this season. Here's how we blend our company's ethos of safety with the joy of the holidays:
1. Embrace the Fall Vibes in Workplace Decor: Decking out the workspace with autumn colors, pumpkins, and tasteful holiday decor can
lift the spirits of employees. Ensure that the decorations are fireproof, don't obstruct
pathways, and aren't placed near heavy machinery.
2. Offer Seasonal PPE Designs: Who said safety couldn't be stylish? At Respire, we believe in combining function with
fashion. Consider rolling out PPE in festive colors or patterns, making safety feel more
like a celebration.
3. Organize Safety Training Refreshers: Before the holiday rush, it's an excellent time for a refresher course on workplace safety.
Cover the basics and highlight any specific concerns related to increased seasonal
4. Celebrate Safety Milestones: Did your team go another month without accidents? Celebrate these safety milestones.
Recognizing and rewarding safe behavior can act as a motivator for everyone.
5. Promote Health & Wellness: With flu season approaching and colder weather setting in, promote health and wellness.
Providing flu shots or wellness checks can be a great way to show employees you care
about their well-being.
6. Plan for Year-End Inventory: For manufacturers like us, year-end can be hectic. Ensure that your inventory, especially
safety equipment like PPE, is well-stocked. You don't want to be caught off-guard with
shortages, especially during peak times.
7. Engage with the Community: The holiday season is also about giving back. At MPC, we believe in enriching our local
Massachusetts community. Organize charity drives, partner with local businesses for
events, or donate a portion of sales to a worthy cause.
