At INGENIUM, “Safety” is one of our core values and number one priorities. We are committed to the health and safety of our employees, our customers, our families and our communities. We encourage everyone to implement safety practices at your workplace and in your homes to avoid accidents and injuries to your co-workers and family members. Safety rules are your best tools.
Search for hazards Analyze the risks Find the cause Eliminate the cause Tell others You are safe
One of the best ways to keep yourself and your employees safe is to proactively work to prevent potential injuries or accidents from occurring in the workplace. Doing regular safety checks and certifications can help you stay ahead of the game and allow you to spot potential hazards before they become dangerous.
Aside from proactively checking for any potential safety hazards, you should also make sure your employees know safety protocols and procedures. These protocols or procedures may include OSHA regulations, fire safety and prevention, emergency exit routes, who to call if you spot a potential hazard, who to call if something happens, CPR, correct safety protocols for strenuous jobs to prevent injuries, and more. Regular safety meetings and trainings will keep your team updated on the latest safety procedures and encourage workplace safety consciousness.
Engage with your team and encourage safe practices. Don’t cut corners to get a job done faster, especially if it means skipping or ignoring certain safety protocols. Make sure all job sites are kept clean and clear of clutter at the end of each day and communicate with your employees to receive helpful feedback about current workplace safety and potential issues.
Safety is our number one priority at INGENIUM, which is why we offer customized Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) training courses for our clients. Don’t wait, contact us today to see how we can help improve your workplace safety practices!
