September is an interesting time in Denver and the Rocky Mountain region. The days get shorter, school is in full swing, and the weather can catch you off guard. Metro Building Products helps our employees understand that by planning ahead, sicknesses and accidents can mostly be avoided.
In any safety scenario, it’s important to understand that by simply planning ahead, you can avoid accidents. The same can be said, with regards to wellness. We talk with our employees, that by watching the weather, and knowing what type of weather and temps throughout the day, our employees can come to work prepared. We help them understand that by going to bed early and getting a full nights sleep, they can avoid overtaxing their own immune system.
Transitioning from the summer months to autumn can be taxing on the human immune system. This can happen with the immune system is stressed due to overcompensation that could have been avoided. During our safety meeting this month, we talked about how simple things like washing your hands, eating well and getting enough rest can be beneficial to your overall immune system. We help them understand that by maintaining healthy habits they can avoid future sick days.
We try not to take our employees health for granted. That is why our Denver drywall supply company make a point in expressing the importance of staying healthy and planning ahead. Hopefully, some of what we preach will turn into life-long lessons.
