Safety First!

From the time we are very little, our parents drill this into our head. The safety first mantra hits us on all aspects of our life and working in the telecommunication industry is no exception.  Even though we often assume that we are safe, it is important to sometimes step back and reexamine how we do our job with a safety conscious mind.

Even in the winter months, it is important to remember to wear sunscreen.  We offer a great sunscreen towelette by PT Technologies that is compact, quick drying, non greasy and protects against UVA & UVB rays.  The towelettes have minimal odor and do not contain any alcohol.  Also, the formula will not stain clothes!

Comstar Supply also stocks a wide range of safety signs as a courtesy to our customers.  We like to think of ourselves as a one stop shop and that includes your safety materials!  We have signs ranging from reflective flagman to left lane closed and right lane closed to work area ahead and men working.  We also stock a variety of sign stands like the traditional four leg stand, the compact sign stand, and the stacker sign stand.  If there is a specific sign you need and do not see on our website, just ask!  We are usually able to meet specific state and local sign requirements!

Other safety equipment we keep in stock includes reflective cones and vests.  We also stock reflective stop/slow paddles and a variety of caution tape.  In the past we have even helped our customers purchase arrow boards!

Here are Comstar, we have even taken measures to make our operations and facilities safer.  Over the past year we have formed a Safety Committee which meets monthly to review how we can improve aspects of our operation.  The Safety Committee has reviewed and made changes with our forklift safety, warehouse safety, first aid procedures and more!

So next time you are on the job site, take a minute to step back and make sure you have everything that you need to keep yourself and your workers safe and if there is anything we can do to help you do your job while keeping safety first, just let us know!
