Boost Workplace Safety…12 Steps Step #2

Who can do the most to promote safety in the workplace? YOU! You’re the one employees look to for leadership and guidance. You’re the one management relies on to provide safety training, enforce safety rules, and monitor employee performance.

 #2 Stress Training
Emphasize employee safety and accident prevention by having regular employee orientations. Follow through with regular safety meetings, informal talks, and required training sessions. Answer employees questions about safety procedures and give them the answers they need to work safely. If you don’t know the answer contact someone who does. Engage your employees in the rules. Rules are less likley to get broken if staff knows and understands why they have been put in place.
