Information : Accident Boards and Fairs
Raytheon Missile Systems Company (RMSC) developed several EH&S programs designed to increase employee and management awareness. Two of these programs are the Lost Time Accident Board, and the EH&S Fair.
The Lost Time Accident Board is a large sign placed at all main entrances into RMSC. This sign displays a permanent safety slogan; the running total of days without a lost time accident; and the previous best record. RMSC established the Lost Time Accident Board as a way to lower accident rates and meet company goals by making employees aware of these accidents and encouraging them to become enthusiastic about beating the previous record.
The EH&S Fair, held once a year, showcases approximately 60 environmental and safety exhibitors from the local community (e.g., EH&S-related corporations, law enforcement agencies, health care providers). The exhibitors set up booths at RMSC, and employees have an opportunity to visit the displays during their lunch hour. The EH&S Fair features demonstrations, educational information, and new safety products for the home, work, and recreational environments. The objective is for employees to work and play more efficiently and safely. These EH&S Fairs are also conducted at local schools to educate middle and elementary students about home safety.
The Lost Time Accident Boards and the EH&S Fairs place awareness and safety data at the forefront to educating employees. In addition, these programs demonstrate RMSC’s commitment to safety, and reinforce EH&S as an important part of life.
