Happy Brew Year!!! How’s your safety program going? The beginning of the year is a great time to sit down and really think about safety. Studies have shown for every $1 invested in safety the return is $3. So if your brewery hasn’t already taken safety seriously, now is the time to review your safety programs not just for OSHA compliance but to increase profitability of the brewery going forward.
Where to start? There are great resources and expertise out there. The Masters Brewers Association of Americas (MBAA) has a library of safety program templates, safety tool box talks (from forktrucks to alcohol consumption), and a “ask a safety team Q & A”. The Brewers Association has publications on best management practices (BMPs) for Confined Spaces, Personal Protective Equipment, and Powered Industrial Trucks. As well as a FREE online task specific safety videos (highly recommended).
