Link Staffing Services Celebrates National Safety Month

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - August 04, 2014) - No one can argue with the fact that workplace safety is important, yet it's often unintentionally overlooked, leaving workers and others on the job site exposed to risk. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries were reported by private industry employees last year. Among these injuries, 2.1 million (75.2 percent) occurred in service-providing industries.

Greg Mabry, President of Link, states, "As a temporary staffing agency, we do not take these statistics lightly, and we consider the health and safety of our employees of paramount importance when working on any job site." Link Staffing Services recently highlighted this commitment to workplace safety by promoting the National Safety Council's "National Safety Month Campaign" throughout the month of June.

Link created this month long safety campaign to promote safety awareness and focus attention on its commitment to the safety of their employees, clients and Franchisees. Continue reading to see some of the programs that Link incorporated into its campaign, the results and their plan moving forward!

Link's National Safety Month Campaign - "No Injuries Today or Tomorrow"

What is a campaign without a slogan? Link's National Safety Month slogan, "No Injuries Today or Tomorrow," was inspired by their commitment to reduce workplace injuries and cultivate a safety first work culture. The slogan was incorporated into the daily operations of Link's business communications including phone and emails. They also created "No Injuries Today or Tomorrow" temporary tattoos, pins, wristbands and safety equipment (PPE) for their employees to wear and promote their commitment to safety awareness.

June's activities included weekly safety contest submissions of: (1) Testimonial of what "No Injuries Today or Tomorrow" means to you, (2) Create a safety video, (3) Submit a safety selfie and (4) Create a safety rap video. The top 4 submissions for each weekly contest were selected by Link's Risk Management Team, and posted on their company Facebook page for friends, family and co-workers to "like." The number of "likes" determined First, Second, Third and Fourth place cash prize award winners.

Results

Link's recognition of National Safety Month was a huge success. After a full month of contests and acknowledgement programs, Link gave away thousands of dollars in cash prizes and increased awareness of workplace safety both on-site and in their offices. Their promotion of National Safety Month encouraged its offices to generate their own creative ideas to promote Link's commitment to safety. One of Link's branch offices hosted a Safety Picnic resulting in a large turnout of current and prospective clients appreciative of Link's continual support and recognition of National Safety Month.

Link was also able to increase their social media interaction by over 200% and gained over 100 new followers from the contests and safety content posted on their Company Facebook page. By making safety fun and standing out from traditional safety education programs, they were able to effectively encourage interest in safety education and spread safety awareness to their employees, clients and offices.

Although National Safety Month is over, Link is proud of the workplace safety culture that they have developed and plan to continue to promote and continuously communicate the importance of workplace safety to its employees, clients and field staff.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
