Get Your Team Involved Now to Take Steps to Reduce Workplace Injuries

Written by on 6/14/2017 2:01 AM in , , , . It has 1 Comments.

No matter how small your business, it's possible to minimize the health and financial impacts of workplace injuries. This can be accomplished with a team approach to workers comp management geared toward preventing injuries before they occur.

Integrating a Team Approach
What steps should you take to create a safer, more positive work environment for employees?

1. Engage E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E.
The most successful safety programs involve management and employee collaboration. Safety is everyone’s job. Encouraging employees to identify and report hazards and incidents here is key.

2. Ensure a Smooth Transition.
Tasking specific employees and managers with the implementation, maintenance and improvement portions of safety program components.

3. Honestly Assess.
Perform a top-to-bottom evaluation of your business, from equipment to activities, engaging with employees to learn their safety concerns. (And performing an evaluation again each time new operations, equipment or facilities are added.)

4. Take Action.
Identification and awareness are not enough. When hazards are identified, they must be quickly and safely controlled or removed. This includes fixing or replacing broken equipment, as well as adding new safety measures or changing operations – no matter how longstanding. Preventing even a single incident will likely cover associated costs – and then some!

5. Don’t Forego Formal Training.
Go beyond easily ignored reading materials to include live demonstrations, hazard identification and reporting procedures – even first-aid training - to ensure not only immersion and involvement, but also rapid response to incidents.

6. Earn ROI from RRI:

  • Review your program regularly.
  • Respond quickly to incidents and near-misses.
  • Improve programs to correct dangerous situations.
