Boost Workplace Safety…12 Steps Step #4

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. Each week for the next 12 weeks we will post a new step.
#4 Communicate Often
Talk! Talk! Talk! The more you talk to your co-workers and staff about safety the more likely they are to implemet and follow procedures. Keep them up to date on new procedures, regualtions and information that affects their safety. Provide feedback, praise safe performance, and discuss areas for improvement. Encourage the flow of communication both ways. Encourage and reward staff for coming up with new safety regualtions and procedures. Brainstorm together for safety ideas and suggestions.
