NLBMDA Introduces Environment, Health and Safety Resource Center
NLBMDA has announced the launch of the Environment, Health & Safety Resource Center, an online portal for NLBMDA members providing access to safety assessment resources relevant to the LBM sector. The EHS Resource Center is being launched with two safety assessment checklists developed by NLBMDA for use in LBM yards and LBM warehouses. These checklists, built upon the input of our membership and the members of the Environment, Health and Safety Committee, represent best practices for identifying potential hazards that can emerge in these settings.
Each checklist is organized around specific areas and as their names suggest, can be used on a monthly basis. The Monthly Safety Assessment for LBM Warehouses Checklist includes questions and considerations on housekeeping, miscellaneous safety and environmental items, personal protective equipment, other employee protections, fire extinguishers, flammable and combustible materials, liquid petroleum, storage areas, elevated surfaces and motorized vehicles including forklifts.
NLBMDA welcomes your comments and recommendations to enhance the value of these checklists, as well as recommendations for additional resources. Please send any comments or questions to [email protected].
