The WRS Safety Tool Belt:

These are some of the tools WRS uses in our Safety trade.

Tool #1 – The 3 C’s Character / Competency / Chemistry

One of the greatest tools in the tool belt; The 3 C’s are used in the interview process to vet all applicants. The ideal WRS employee is a man or woman of character who knows how to do their job and can get along with people. It is WRS’s winning combination.

Tool #2 – Safety Culture On-Boarding

Part 1 – New Hire Training – 16 Hours. (Complete list of new hire training topics available upon request)

Part 2 – A highlighted 4 hour Safety Culture Class where all newer employees to WRS interact and get introduced to their own “Injury Free Journey.”

Tool #3 – Injury Free Journey Notebook.

After being introduced to their “Injury Free Journey,” we follow-up with a 27 week discovery adventure. This is a weekly topical look at what it means to be “Injury Free.” This 27 week Journey is undertaken approximately once per year. (Topics Available Upon Request)

Tool #4 – P.A.W.S. Program (People Always Working Safely)

The PAWS Program is a Safety Incentive Program focused on finding near misses, good catches & good saves. (PAWS Card available upon request)

Tool #5 – WRS Ladder

This is a visual tool we use to encourage workers to move from being a “Prisoner” or a “Drifter” to becoming a “Player.” This tool also helps supervisor’s identify which employees are engaged in their work and which ones aren’t.
