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.
Step # 9 Be Consistent
Enforce safety standards uniformly and consistently. Don’t allow some employees to bend the rules and expect to enforce them with the rest of your staff. Don’t come down on somebody one day for not following a rule and then ignore the same behavior the next day. And don’t just tell workers that they did something wrong. Explain why it’s wrong and how to do it right .
