    Define the necessary skills for each job.

    Workers in jobs only if they possess necessary physical/mental skills.

  7. Discuss
    Frequently discuss safety status and measures regularly at meetings, performance evaluations, etc.

  9. Moderate
    Understand overtime and unsafe staffing practices increase risks.
