- Review safety information about all hazards in the workplace. Keep your workers safe by making sure their knowledge is in top shape. Explain the different hazards and how a routine use of the equipment or materials may result in an injury or health complication. Provide employees with operating manuals and train them how to use the equipment properly.
- Conduct routine safety inspections to reduce hazards. Incorporate employees into the inspection process so they also know what to look for as they work with it. Post safety checklists throughout the office to remind employees how to protect themselves.
- Identify and review all accidents or near-accidents on-site to ensure that safety standards are being met. Create a routine process for investigating workplace injury or health impacts. Develop open lines of communication and keep an open mind during the investigation. Always communicate the results with your employees.
- Be cautious of non-routine procedures and how they may impact workplace safety. No one wants to be put in an emergency situation, but it’s important to prepare for them, just in case. Have a plan in place to handle emergency scenarios to avoid further injury. Make note of hazards that could arise during these times and inform employees about them.
- Minimize hazards and dangers in the workplace whenever possible. Employers should constantly scan facilities for risks and prioritize fixing them.
