How Signet’s Own Safety Gloves continues to reduce TRIFR

A number of Hand Safety Reports from 2017 conclude that roughly 95% of organisations experience hand injuries, and one in five workplace injuries occur to the hands. Many hand injuries take weeks or even months to heal, requiring medical treatment and what’s even worse – they are usually preventable.

Recently Signet adopted a new Integrated Management system, Skytrust. The system allows Signet to report on leading measures and get on top of safety, ensuring hazards can be identified and eliminated before they become statistics. Skytrust has also helped identify several preventable hand injuries within the business, leading to a further importance being placed on employee safety.

Not all hazards can be eliminated entirely, but that doesn’t mean injuries can’t be significantly reduced. Signet maintains a strong priority for all staff on educating the correct usage requirements and environments for wearing gloves. Suitable gloves are always available at every work station and all staff have access to Signet’s Own safety gloves regardless of their role.

Overall Signet’s proactive safety culture has had a significant effect on the reduction of injuries in the workplace, with total recordable injury frequency rate (TRIFR) seeing continued reduction due to this consistent focus on safety.

In the manufacturing world, even a relatively minor hand injury can land a team member out of action for weeks. That’s not a risk Signet wants to take.

Your organisation’s future is in your hands, so take care of them.
