January 15, 2018 | Staffing Blog
We are at the time of year where employers and employees have to make the right preparations and have the right state of mind when it comes to safety and injury prevention. One of the most successful prevention techniques is embracing the attitude that workplace safety is the responsibility of everyone. The company has to initiate all safety protocols. Once those protocols have been established, the company has to take the necessary steps to lay out all the safety responsibilities and what is expected of everyone.
We suggest that you include your staff members in every step of your safety plan strategy. When everyone is included, you will encourage everyone to maintain a strong work culture. Not only will you have a strong culture in your workplace, you will also allow everyone to feel comfortable communicating and addressing any issues they may have.
Slips and falls account for hundreds of workplace accidents and deaths every year. Recently, these types of accidents have been higher in recent years. When you have a proactive safety plan in place, you will be able to address slips and falls. When you address this ahead of time, you can minimize some of the costs you will be responsible for. There is a wealth of information that you can use to create safety measures to reduce slips and falls in your workplace.
