Safety Month

Welcome back to another post celebrating the National Safety Month of June. This week’s topic addresses workplace impairment and recognizing the signs. The National Safety Council defines impairment as the inability to function normally or safely because of several factors such as: chemical substances (e.g., alcohol, opioids), physical factors (e.g., fatigue and certain medical conditions), social factors (e.g., professional, and other stressors) and mental distress (e.g., related illness and other factors). At PSG we focus on the safety of our employees and do our best to ensure each employee is cognizant of their surroundings and able to perform their job function at a high level.
