List Of Ways To Minimize Injuries At Work

Health and safety should be two of the most important things to focus on when you’re on the job. Focusing on these things can help you to lessen on the likelihood of workplace injuries and lost working days in the business. There are a number of things that you can do to diminish the number of injuries at work.

  • Make your health and safety policy available for your staff to read, particularly if you have more than 5 members of staff. You can make it available in staff handbooks, induction packs, on the notice board and more.
  • Always do a risk assessment that can help you to identify the potential hazards present in the workplace.
  • If you recognize that there are any hazards present, have them dealt with as soon as possible.
  • Consult with your staff on risk management, encourage them to flag workplace hazards and encourage them to discuss safety issues – these will all help you to create a safer workplace for you.
  • Clearly display safety signs and information for staff and customers.
  • Provide a comfortable, clean environment, with an ergonomic layout to lessen the likelihood of injuries (like Repetitive Strain Injuries) occurring at work.
  • Make sure than first-aid supplies are available and provide first-aid training for the individual appointed to do CPR.
  • Always ensure that you have regular fire safety risk assessments and you maintain a fire management plan that pinpoints possible hazards as well.
  • If there ever happens to be an accident or an injury at work, approach it positively and take steps that will stop it from recurring.
  • Always update your safety procedures by reviewing your policies and the legislation at least once per year, depending on your business’s expansion rate.

A safe work place is crucial and ensuring that you have the right safety procedures and policies for things such as working at heights, first aid CPR, confined space entry, as well as things like WHMIS-GHS can create a great work environment that is safe and productive.
