For those of you who don’t know, January 2017 is ‘Get Organised Month’. The annual event has been around since 2005 and was created in an attempt to try and increase public awareness about the importance of being organised. It may sound silly, but when we tell you that research shows that, on average, every single person wastes fifteen days each year due to being disorganised, you may think twice. The statistics demonstrate that it clearly pays to be organised, especially since time is one thing that we definitely can’t recover (as much as we might wish we could!)
Being organised is important in many areas and aspects of life, but it is especially important in the workplace. If your job requires you to be worki
ng at height, it almost goes without saying that safety is paramount. But do you know that safety and organisation go hand in hand?
Keep on Top of Things
Keeping organised and making sure that both you and your colleagues or employees have the correct safety training is vital. It also pays to be on top of paperwork and up to date with all your admin duties, as tedious as they may be, because you don’t want to find out that your safety training is out of date! Keep track of your training qualifications to ensure that you renew your IPAF harness safety training in Newcastle, Tyne and Wear, and across the North-East, to keep yourself and everyone around you as safe as possible.
It also pays to be organised in case of bad weather. Extra safety precautions need to be put in place during the winter months, particularly if your w
orkforce is working outdoors at height. IPAF harness training needs to be regularly renewed to ensure your team knows how to work safely at all times, taking the adverse winter weather into account. After all, it’s important to keep in mind that safety isn’t just for your own benefit; it is also to protect everyone around you. It’s also worth keeping in mind that dreary winter days don’t usually provide much natural light, so ensure that you have plenty of strong lights to hand to cut the risk of accidents.
