Developing a culture of safety at your business is important. In addition to protecting your employees and customers, workplace safety can also save you money. The fewer workers’ compensation claims that are brought against your business, the lower your rates will be. These eight tips can help you create a safer work environment: Train workers on proper safety protocols. Your employees should be trained to safely execute the duties listed in their job description, including proper lifting techniques and how to handle any hazardous materials that are present in the workplace. Each new employee should be properly trained before beginning work, and it’s important to provide refresher training periodically. Have emergency procedures in place. Develop a written safety plan that clearly outlines a procedure for handling and reporting injuries and emergencies, including phone numbers for first responders. Make sure every employee has read the plan as part of their training, and review it with them as part of your periodic training refreshers. Also, make sure to post the plan in an accessible spot, so it’s easy to reference.
