Mansfield Expo Focuses on Safety Trends

November 20, 2018

Bruce Mansfield employees and supplemental workers attend a training session focusing on the safe use of hydraulic hand tools. The session was part of a Safety Expo that focused on current safety trends and reducing Life Changing Events (LCEs), or events that result in a life-altering serious injury or fatality.

LCE awareness is a crucial element of improving overall safety. Studies have shown that focus on the reduction of OSHA events frequently fails to reduce serious safety incidents, because many OSHA reportable events are relatively minor in nature. Being aware of potential exposure to LCE events or LCE precursors can significantly improve overall safety.
