Just as young children beginning their educational journey, the implementation of a successful safety program as part of your integrative workers comp management practices involves a thorough foundation in the basics of workplace injury prevention. Do you know your workplace injury prevention ABCs?

There are 3 Main Ways to Prevent Workplace Injury
Are you using these building blocks to create a stable foundation within your company?

A dministration
Developing and implementing proper rules and procedures protects workers. Typically put into effect by owners or supervisors, these include:

  • Chemical/cleaning product storage procedures.
  • Limits on repetitive motion tasks/job rotation.
  • Age limits for dangerous equipment operation.
  • Protective equipment requirements (goggles, earplugs).
  • Controls for reducing exposure to hazards (time limits for pesticide application, distance for x-rays).

B uilding Barriers
Mechanical controls such as shields or guards are the best way to prevent injuries in the workplace. Circumventing the need to rely on employees to make safe choices every time, these environmental changes make it easier to reliably control/prevent injuries. Examples include:

  • Locks.
  • Non-slip surfaces.
  • Guards (on hot/sharp/dangerous equipment).
  • Ventilation to preserve air quality.
  • Personal protective equipment (safety clothing, respirators, gloves).

C ommunication
Communication with employees, including proper training, is essential to encouraging a safety culture and ensuring compliance. After all, a worker cannot apply knowledge he himself has not learned, such as the dangers of improperly stored chemicals or exposure to blood. Necessary communication can be implemented many ways:

  • Hands-on/In-person training.
  • Literature.
  • Online training.
  • Reminders on bulletin boards, hallways, and break areas.

Now you know your ABCs! Build a strong foundation and achieve workers comp management goals. Learn more with the help of Minnesota Comp Advisor today.
