sophistication to any event or celebration. IDville has the tools to make your next event memorable, or outfit your staff with an assortment of

Better Safe Then Sorry
Even though National Safety Month comes once a year in June, safety is a year long issue. Each year six million American workers suffer non-fatal
workplace injuries costing U.S. businesses more than $125 billion. Simple steps ward off potential hazards, but it's surprising how often these
precautions are ignored.
Here's a snapshot of ways to address safety in your workplace:
Meet On It - Don't wait for an incident to review standard safety procedures. Plan a meeting once a month as a refresher for all
employees, not just for those in a production capacity or who work with machinery. Plenty of risks exist in any environment. Add props,
skits or handouts to emphasize your points, and have prizes for impromptu quizzes on the information you covered. Hand out
Safety First themed badge reels and lanyards as a daily, wearable reminder that safety is important.
Post It - Knowledge is power. Make safety information readily available for all employees. Use an employee intranet site to get the
word out about safety issues.
Check It - Perform unscheduled safety checks. Make sure all equipment is working properly and all regular maintenance is performed.
Look for hazards in your hallways such as damaged flooring or carpet that can easily be tripped over, especially on a stairwell. Have
fully-stocked first-aid kits available and let employees know where they are. Designate a first responders team before incidents happen,
and make sure the team is properly trained for emergencies by knowing CPR or implementing an emergency plan.
Use lanyards with a breakaway feature in the event the lanyard gets hooked on something, or someone.
The lanyard quickly snaps in two to avoid injury. This feature is especially handy in schools, hospitals or manufacturing environments.
Monitor It - Employees function at a higher level when they feel safe and comfortable. Part of that security comes from knowing
that building access is not for everyone. Register your visitors and use an
IDville exclusive log-in system to not only identify,
but record all daily visitor activity.
Use your photo ID card system to design and print unique visitor badges
on demand, and use the software to generate activity reports.
Recognize Volunteers Frequently, And Repeat
Volunteers give their time and talents without compensation. It's important to recognize that gift as often as you can. The next time you
have an event where you'll need volunteers to direct traffic, greet guests or setup behind the scenes, use bold
and badges to distinguish them.
You don't need a reason to recognize everyday. Employees who feel appreciated perform better and have fewer issues with absenteeism.
Give employees a daily reminder of their worth to your organization with a themed badge reel or
lanyard, so they can wear their badge with style. Let them know they make a difference or are a key
player in the department. Hand out badge holders with a
lapel pin display so employees can proudly show pins they receive for achievements and milestones.
Celebrating patriotism is not reserved for the Fourth of July or Memorial Day. Use
American flag badge reels and
at your company picnic to show your pride, or hand them out as a way to honor service men and women in your workplace.
