The supervisor should intervene any time an employee or visitor performs an unsafe act or is in the shop without the proper personal protective equipment.
The supervisor is the champion for safety and makes sure the shop remains safe.
The shop must be kept clean for safety, efficiency and morale reasons. All clean-up for individual jobs should be a part of, and charged to, the individual job.
The supervisor should arrange for periodic clean projects to keep the entire shop area and the yard tidy.
Support your supervisors.
