The Postal Service is reminding employees to report and document safety hazards whenever and wherever they arise.
Employees can use PS Form 1767, Report of Hazard, Unsafe Condition or Practice, to document potential hazards in the workplace and to notify their supervisor.
Using this form also allows the employee’s supervisor to monitor the workplace hazard throughout the abatement process and to ensure the employee receives notice when the hazard has been addressed.
The Postal Service recently mailed a postcard about PS Form 1767 to employees’ homes.
“The key to an industry-leading safety program is employee involvement, especially when it comes to hazard identification and abatement,” said Leeann Theriault, employee safety and health awareness manager.
