Tips for Ensuring a Safe Workplace

Ensuring that your workplace is safe is an absolute must for any organization. By doing so, you are not only safeguarding your employees from potential hazards, but also fostering a positive work environment that enhances productivity and reduces the likelihood of accidents and injuries. Here are some practical workplace safety tips to help you improve safety measures in your own workplace.

The tips below are not all inclusive but rather are simple best practices to help you get started.

Establish a Safe Culture in the Workplace

Creating a safe workplace culture is essential for all organizations. The key to achieving this is to build an environment where everyone, from top management to frontline employees, values and prioritizes safety. Encouraging open communication channels, providing regular safety training, and setting clear protocols for reporting potential hazards or accidents are all important steps to take. By making safety a shared responsibility, you can develop a workplace where all employees actively contribute to maintaining a secure and hazard-free environment.

Conduct Regular Risk Assessments

Conducting regular risk assessments plays a crucial role in identifying potential hazards and preventing risks effectively. It is important to evaluate all aspects of the workplace, such as equipment, machinery, work processes, and environmental factors. By doing so, you can develop effective strategies to eliminate or reduce potential hazards. Make sure to conduct periodic risk assessments, especially when introducing new equipment or implementing changes to the work environment.

Provide Ongoing Employee Safety Training and Education

To ensure the safety of your employees, it’s important to provide them with proper training. Comprehensive safety training programs should be implemented, covering topics such as emergency procedures, equipment usage, handling hazardous materials, and ergonomic practices. When it comes to safety, avoid a one-and-done approach and offer ongoing training to ensure that employees are up-to-date with the latest safety best practices and regulatory requirements.

Supply Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Personal Protective Equipment is a crucial component of workplace safety. Assess the hazards present in the workplace and provide appropriate PPE to employees. Whether it’s safety helmets, goggles, gloves, or protective clothing, ensure that employees have access to the necessary gear and understand how to use it correctly. Regularly inspect and replace worn-out or damaged PPE to maintain its effectiveness. To maintain its effectiveness, conduct regular inspections and replace any worn-out or damaged PPE.

Promote Ergonomic Practices in the Workplace

Ergonomic hazards, such as repetitive strain injuries and musculoskeletal disorders, can significantly impact employee well-being. Educating employees on the importance of proper ergonomic practices, such as maintaining good posture, using ergonomic furniture, and taking regular breaks, can help reduce these risks. It is also a good idea to conduct ergonomic assessments to identify potential hazards and make necessary adjustments to workstations.

Encourage Reporting & Learning from Incidents:

To ensure a safe working environment, it’s vital to create a culture where employees feel comfortable reporting accidents, near-misses, or potential hazards without fear of retaliation. To begin, establish an incident reporting system, then investigate all incidents and near-misses thoroughly, taking appropriate corrective actions. By analyzing incidents, organizations can identify patterns, implement preventative measures, and continuously enhance safety in the workplace.

Workplace safety isn’t just a legal or ethical requirement – it’s also a strategic choice that can benefit both your organization and employees. By cultivating a safety-conscious culture, conducting routine risk assessments, offering relevant training, and enforcing necessary safety precautions consistently, you can establish a secure and productive work environment. Keep in mind, a safe workplace is a thriving workplace.

Looking for Some Support with Your Safety Program?

Manpower has an experienced Safety Manager who can come to your facility to help with risk assessments, training, plant tour to provide a full report of potential risks/hazards. Contact us today to learn more about leveraging our safety expertise for your gain!

Workplace Safety is a Shared Responsibility

A safe and secure workplace not only protects you from harm but also promotes productivity, job satisfaction, and overall success. As we continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of work, it is crucial that we all reaffirm our commitment to workplace safety.

Adhere to all Safety Guidelines:

Familiarize yourself with the safety protocols and guidelines established by your organization. These guidelines exist to protect you and your colleagues. Make sure you understand them thoroughly and follow them diligently. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to your supervisor or the designated safety officer.

Maintain a Clean and Organized Workspace:

A clutter-free and well-organized workspace not only enhances productivity but also reduces the risk of accidents and injuries. Keep your work area clean, properly store equipment, and promptly report any hazards or potential risks to the appropriate authorities.

Report Incidents and Near-Misses:

Reporting incidents and near-misses is crucial for identifying potential hazards and implementing preventative measures. If you witness an accident, unsafe condition, or near-miss, report it to your supervisor or the designated reporting channels immediately. Your timely reporting can prevent future incidents and ensure the safety of everyone in the workplace.

Utilize Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

Depending on the nature of your work, you may be required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) such as safety helmets, goggles, gloves, or masks. It is essential to wear and maintain your PPE properly to safeguard yourself and others. Regularly inspect your equipment, replace damaged items, and store them in designated areas when not in use.

Stay Informed About Safe Work Practices:

Stay up-to-date with the latest safety practices and procedures by attending all safety training sessions that are offered to you. Take advantage of those opportunities to enhance your understanding of safety protocols and share your knowledge with colleagues.

By adhering to safety guidelines, maintaining a clean workspace, promptly reporting incidents, utilizing personal protective equipment, and fostering a culture of safety, we can ensure a secure and productive work environment. Remember, safety is not an individual effort but a collective endeavor that benefits us all. Let’s work together to prioritize workplace safety and create a safer future for everyone.

Set realistic goals

As you begin your new role, it’s important to set realistic goals for yourself. Take the time to assess what you want to achieve in the short and long-term, and work with your supervisor to develop a plan to achieve those goals.

Take care of yourself

Starting a new job can be stressful, so it’s important to take care of yourself both physically and mentally.

Dialing Down Workplace Stress

Guess what? Even your dream job is going to have its fair share of stress. It’s an unavoidable reality.  Whether it is the pressure of deadlines, an upcoming performance review, a gaggle of loud customers, process/technology changes, or an annoying co-worker – stress will be part of the job. Not all stress is bad, a little stress can propel your performance. The long-term effects of stress and the anxiety that comes along with it can have a negative impact on your overall health and well-being. 

Since you cannot realistically eliminate workplace stress, your next best step is to finding ways to dial it down! Here are a few tried and true tips in honor of April being National Stress Awareness Month to help you do just that. 

Fuel Your Body 

Our stress buttons are bigger and brighter when we are not getting our basic needs met. This means it isn’t surprising that your body and nervous system are going to be on high alert if it isn’t nourished. The first thing you can do to mitigate stress is to keep your body fueled through good nutrition, exercise, and sleep. So, get that blood moving, curb those hunger pains, and snuggle into a warm blanket to turn down that inner volume.  

Get Yourself Organized 

Another strategy to turn down your internal sirens is by leaning into your executive functioning skills. These are core mental skills that will help to keep you focused and moving in the right direction. So, grab a calendar, pad of paper, tablet, or some sticky-notes and make a plan. Make a list of what is stressing you out and make a list of what you need to get done. How are you spending your time? Can you adjust it to better serve your current situation? Keep your workspace organized and be sure you have ease of access to the tools you need to get the job done.  

Limit Unnecessary Distractions 

Perhaps some of your stress is being magnified by the noise of unnecessary distractions. This includes getting yourself caught up in workplace drama, watercooler gossip, or the rabbit hole that is social media. By limiting your exposure to unnecessary distractions, you are not letting that negative energy influence your mood and increase your stress level. So, give yourself permission to take a break from toxic people and social media.  

Practice Regular Selfcare 

Days are long, but life is short. Make yourself a priority. As adults we often lose ourselves in a sea of responsibilities. It is critical to your overall wellness to practice regular selfcare. What is selfcare? That is entirely based on individual preference. What makes you feel whole? What feeds your soul? Make time for yourself, whatever it is.  

Seek Professional Support 

Look, life is hard. Sometimes, despite your best efforts to mitigate, manage, or reduce stress you fall short of doing so. Many health issues can be attributed to sustained stress and anxiety and the best possible thing you can do is access professional support. Seeking guidance is a sign of strength and is an incredible opportunity to build yourself a toolbox filled with a full range of tools to help you deal with the many stressors that affect your life. You can find several resources here if you need: https://211maine.org/mental-health/ 

Remember, stress is a normal part of life and there are many simple things you can do starting right now to minimize its negative impact on your daily life. Focus on what you can control and develop strategies to drown out the noise of the stuff you can’t. 

Got Lunch

Easy Workday Lunch Ideas

Got LunchGot lunch?

Whether your mid-day meal is at noon or 3am, you may struggle coming up with quick and easy workday lunch ideas. So, this could leave you dealing with eating the same thing every day, a rumbling belly, a quick stop at a convenience store, or scrounging for change for that coveted turkey sandwich in the breakroom vending machine. With a little planning and creativity you can have more control over what you eat to fuel you through the workday.

Small choices can make a big impact on your wallet, health, and the planet! According to Visa, the average American spends over $2,700/year on lunches, around $50 a week, wouldn’t you like to see that in your bank account instead? Packing your lunch gives you more control over what kind of food you’re eating, so you are less likely to eat something unhealthy or overeat. It can also help reduce waste, since around half of all litter is produced from fast food garbage!

Whether you are trying to save money, eat healthier, or do your part to reduce waste, here are a few ideas for easy workday lunches!

Heat It and Eat It:

  • Leftovers: instead of letting your leftovers turn into a science projects in the back of your fridge, grab some reusable lunch size containers and portion them out for a quick grab and go lunch.
  • Omelette in a Cup: spray a microwave safe cup with some cooking spray, add an egg or two, and some toppings of choice (cheese, ham, peppers, onions, salsa – the options are endless), stir it up, and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring each time until cooked.
  • Soups & Stews: keep an eye out for sales at your local grocery store and stock up on some of your favorite soups or stews. Keeping a couple cans at work or in your travel bag can be a budget saver when you are too busy to pack a lunch.

 

Mason Jar LunchLunch Fit for a Cooler:

  • Chicken Salad or Caesar Wraps: prepare the salad base of your choosing (tip: bagged salads make life so easy and are often on sale), cut up some grilled chicken, and roll it all up into a tortilla for healthy and delicious meal.
  • Tuna, Chicken, Ham, or Turkey Salad: whether you opt for canned or chopped meat you can easily make a protein packed salad with some mayonnaise, mustard, dressing, some diced veggies (celery, onions, pickles, olives, craisins), and some salt & pepper. Grab your favorite bread, or throw it on top of a bed of lettuce. Yum!
  • Peanut Butter & Jelly: reminisce about your childhood with the classic peanut butter & jelly (or fluff) sandwich. Make a whole flashback meal with some fruit snacks, graham crackers, and a pudding cup. Make your mother happy and be sure to grab an apple or orange for good measure.

 

 

Weekly Meal Prep Lunches:

  • Charcuterie Snackle-Boxes: head to your local dollar store grab a few clear boxes with built in compartments (like flat tackle boxes or craft boxes) pre-fill compartments with an assortment of cheeses, meats, fruit, nuts, veggies, berries, and condiments. Grab and go daily for quick, easy, and delicious sustenance.
  • Mason Jar Salads: since they are airtight by design mason jars are perfect for weekly salad prep. Mix it up and try different dressings and ingredients but be sure to add your items in this specific order to preserve freshness: dressing at the bottom, then add ingredients by weight, protein, cheeses, nuts, veggies, greens.
  • Rice Bowls: if you need variety to your daily lunches start with a base of rice & chicken, and then jazz your daily meal up using different sauces and veggies for each day. You can add beans, salsa, cheese for a nice Mexican meal. Add cucumbers, olives, tomatoes, and tzatziki to get that greek flavor (tip: grab a pita and hummus for the side). Teriyaki sauce, broccoli, cabbage, ginger, and shredded carrots to cure that craving for chinese take out.

Whatever you decide to pack for lunch, brown-bagging it will be good for your bank account, health, and the planet.

Bon Appetit.

National Random Acts of Kindness Day

Chances are you have experienced both the acts of giving and receiving kindness. If you have, you know the feeling that comes with it. That feeling is palpable.

Kindness in the form of time:

  • Visit a nursing home to talk and spend time with residents
  • Read a story to a child or classroom
  • Join a community committee/group
  • Offer to babysit or care for a friend or loved one

Be a patron of kindness:

  • Leave a positive online review for a business
  • Clean up litter in a parking lot
  • Donate items to charity
  • Donate blood or plasma
  • Tell a worker what a good job they are doing

Using your voice for kindness:

  • Speak up for someone being mistreated
  • Be a voice of reason and resolution during a conflict
  • Sign a petition for those in need
  • Be an advocate for a mission that you care about
  • Write a thank you letter to someone that has made an impact in your life

These are just a few of the ways you can spread kindness, so get creative and sprinkle it around like glitter so it sticks to everything!

4 Steps to Enter the Workforce

4 steps to enter the workforceCongratulations! You did it.

Whether you are crossing the High School or College stage, you are undeniably entering the next phase of your adult life. Graduation is a major milestone that should be celebrated – so before you start worrying about ‘what’s next’ take a moment to honor your achievement and pat yourself on the back.

This summer is all about figuring out what your next best step is. While this time is exciting, it may also be a bit scary due to the uncertainty of what the future holds. Don’t worry – you don’t need to have it all figured out today – your career is a constant journey, and all those friends you have that seem to have it all mapped out, well let’s just say they don’t, and that’s okay too. You are about to start a rewarding journey, and we can’t wait to see how far you go!

No matter where you are in your journey Manpower Maine has your back!

We’ve put together a simple roadmap with 4 steps to enter the workforce to help you get started, simply take one step at a time – and you will always get where you need to go.

Step 1: Identify your professional skills

The first key to job and career success is honest self-reflection and recognizing what you bring to the table. Individuals new to the workforce often make one of two mistakes – over or under-valuing their skillset. Before you begin your job search, you may find taking validated skills assessments can help you identify your strengths & weaknesses.

Step 2: Outline your short & long-term goals

Yes, your road map will change more times than you can count, but you still should have an idea of which direction you are heading. Every job you have can (and should) be a stepping-stone to your next one. So, ask yourself what your goals are and what position can help you achieve that next step.

Step 3: Do a little market research

Beginning your job search with a solid understanding of the current employment market in your area will reduce your frustration and help you make a solid decision when the time comes. You may have an idea of what you want to do for work, but is what you want available? You may have an idea of how much you want or need to earn – but do your financial expectations match the current market rate in your area?

Step 4: Start the job search process

Now that you know your skill sets, your short-term goals, and the reality of the market, you are well-poised to start an effective search. The search process can be overwhelming and defeating if your approach is all over the place. Focus in on what skills you have, what jobs can benefit from those skills, and which jobs or companies will help with your incremental career growth. It is unlikely that you will find your “dream” job when you are just entering the workforce, so it is okay to accept each job for what it is, an opportunity to help you build your employment reputation and your resume for what lies ahead.

Many successful people will tell you everyone’s journey is different, and each journey will be filled with its own unexpected twists and turns. Make the most of your journey, carve your own path, and see where the road takes you. And, if you need help along the way – Manpower is here to help.

Best of luck and congratulations from the Manpower Maine family.

What Temporary Workers Do Matters!

Every year, the American Staffing Association celebrates the significant contributions that millions of people in the United States make while employed through staffing agencies.  National Staffing Employee Week is being celebrated from September 14-20; this an opportunity for us to honor and recognize all the hardworking temporary workers employed each year.

Why is the work they do so important? In short, they help keep Maine businesses running. They fill in where needed, they are capable of quickly adapting to new work environments and—most importantly—they get the job done. Whether a company is experiencing unprecedented growth, has seasonal demands, has staff out on leave, or a multitude of other reasons – businesses know they can count on temporary staff to bridge the gap.

Where do temporary employees work?  This is a natural curiosity that many people have. The better question is, what don’t they do? Staffing is simply contract work, which spans across every industry and every role imaginable. Some staffing firms specialize in healthcare, engineering, c-suite professionals, or manufacturing work. It really all depends on what the agency has decided to specialize in.

The following statistics have been provided by the American Staffing Association.

Maine Temporary Help Sales By Sector

  • Industrial/Manufacturing/Production – 36%

  • Office/Clerical/Administrative – 33%

  • Uncategorized Sectors – 16%

  • Engineering/IT/Scientific – 14%

  • Healthcare – 1%

Maine Staffing Statistics

  • Annual temporary employment – 29,300

  • Average temporary help workers each week – 5,700

  • Average annual earnings per job – $38,900

Why Job Seekers Choose Temporary Staffing

National numbers provided by the American Staffing Association

  • 64% use staffing to get their foot-in-the-door, or to fill the gap in between jobs

  • 20% choose staffing for the flexibility it offers

  • Access to full-time employment (73% work full-time)

To Our Manpower Associates:

Thank you! Each day that you go into work, you make a difference. You add value. You play a vital role in keeping businesses running smoothly. Please know that your efforts are appreciated by everyone within the Manpower organization, and we appreciate the opportunity to play a small role in your career success.

National Staffing Employee Week is all about YOU and the contributions you continue to make!

 

Overcoming Career Mistakes
Latest News

Overcoming Career Mistakes with the Help of A Staffing Firm

Overcoming Career MistakesDespite the best of intentions, we all make mistakes from time to time, and our professional lives are no exception to that rule. As long as we learn from our mistakes and commit to doing better, they typically don’t interfere with our ability to grow professionally. However, if you’ve made the same mistakes a few too many times – such as not calling or showing to your job or missing too many project deadlines, a pattern starts to emerge, which can make overcoming career mistakes more difficult.

If you’ve struggled with similar professional challenges in the past, but you’re now ready and able to commit to working hard and doing your best, a staffing firm may be able to help you reach your employment goals. They can do this by helping you:

 

Demonstrate that you’re ready for a second chance

If you have some challenges in your work history, like job abandonment or poor performance, employers might be reluctant to take a chance on hiring you. How can they be sure that the same patterns won’t be repeated and negatively impact their business? One way to help alleviate their concerns is by showing them that things have changed – and staffing firms can provide you with opportunities to do just that. Succeeding in short-term or temporary roles helps rebuild your professional brand by giving you evidence that you’ve recommitted to being a dependable and hardworking employee. This helps build trust that can earn you consideration for long-term and permanent positions.

Reduce the likelihood of job dissatisfaction

When you’re trying to figure out what kind of work you’re interested in, it can be helpful to try new things and experiences to see what clicks for you. However, if you change jobs frequently without spending a significant amount of time at any one place, you run the risk of being labeled a chronic ‘job-hopper’ – and potential employers might be scared that you’ll leave them after they invest their time and energy in training you. In addition to helping you gain exposure to a variety of jobs that you may not have considered otherwise, partnering with a staffing firm like Manpower can help you reduce the likelihood of job dissatisfaction – which will help you enjoy more job longevity and build a more stable work history. Our expert Recruiters dig deep during the interview process to learn about your strengths, likes and dislikes, goals, and work environment preferences so that they can set you up for success by making the best match possible.

Level-up your skills by providing coaching & access to training

Are you applying to jobs but not hearing back? Or maybe you’ve interviewed a couple times, only to find out they’ve selected another applicant? This can be very frustrating, especially if you’ve been working on overcoming career mistakes for a while haven’t found any promising leads in your job search. When you work with a staffing firm such as Manpower, you will have an experienced partner that can help you navigate the hiring process, provide resume and interview feedback, and connect you with free online training that will give you an opportunity to build highly sought-after skills. By utilizing these available resources, you can improve your chances of job search success by making yourself a more competitive candidate for job openings.

Get your foot in the door at a great company

Staffing firms like Manpower are connected to a vast network of companies, and this often includes some of the most reputable companies in their respective industries. If you’ve had your eye on a very competitive company but have not been able to get your foot in the door for one reason or another, Manpower may be able to use their strong client relationships to help you bridge that gap. A company may be more inclined to offer you a temp-to-hire opportunity so that you can prove your skills and dependability before they make the commitment to hire you onto their team permanently.
