Create a Safe Workplace
By Kimberly Daise
Creating a safe place to work is the best ways to keep your employee’s accident-free. Not only does it lower your workers compensation cost and premium, but all your employees go home unharmed. This will create an environment where not only do they look out for themselves but they will look out for each other and therefor the organization benefits.
A safe workplace all the employees working together to ensure that everyone on the site is following all safety procedures and wearing all safety gear. This also includes examining the equipment to make sure it is functioning correctly and speaking up and reporting any known issues with equipment and anyone failure to follow safety procedures.
Look and Check for Hazards
Regularly check the workplace site for hazards and examine those things you already consider safely done. Just because it was safe last week does not mean it is safe this week. This includes regularly checking machinery and tools, as well as regular employee training on how to use, maintain and examine the tools.
Employee Training and Involvement
Employee must be thought to consider safety first. Conduct regular training session even if the employee has been trained already. Focus the training on not just the use of the tool but also about identifying hazards, reducing the risk of accidents, near miss reporting. Make sure to give the employee safety check reminders or even required safety check reports to be done.
