With the support of the environment team in Kingston, the organization has initiated a practice of weekly safety walkabouts by each of the supervisors. The supervisors complete a form that indicates all areas of the department have been reviewed. They are also required to give a five-minute presentation on a safety topic to the staff in their unit. The topics are chosen by the unit general safety officer who e-mails the information to the supervisor. This ensures continuity and consistency of the message provided to all staff. The outcome is a coordinated message on safety provided on a weekly basis.
