BP_000077217091 ©

Checklists are a tool many of people use to manage various aspects of daily life, whether it's completing a complicated task, confirming that we've completed necessary financial documents, purchasing all the items for a DIY project or, well, the list goes on and on. In fact, checklists are used so widely that there's been a best-selling book about them--The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande. 

Sometimes, however, checklists can become bloated or redundant, making them less useful in what they are designed to do: walk people through the key steps needed to complete a task.

In the August 2016 issue of Professional Safety, author Nicole Gravina offers four steps OSH professionals can take to improve the safety checklists used within their companies. Read the article to learn what those steps are and how they work in practice.
