But it's an even bigger challenge if your facility uses contractors or temp workers.
It's easy to preach "safety first," but unless you've created a comprehensive safety plan that involves conducting routine maintenance, instituting employee training, outlining safety policies and procedural standards and conducting frequent facility "checkups," it's likely that you're not as protected as you'd like to believe.
