The Importance of Establishing a Workplace Safety Program
When considering loss control management services and your workplace safety program, it is essential to tailor your approach to your workplace. Consider why you wish to commit fully to loss control management now and engage all decision-makers in your organizations. Run an audit or review to determine the risk factors that are present in your industry and specific locations so your risk management program can specifically address those issues. Be sure to consider environmental, workplace and activity-specific risks.
A customized workplace safety program is useful because it addresses the risk that is actually present in your organization, rather than trying to adapt someone else’s safety program for your business. When you have a customized plan, commit it to writing.
You may wish to develop official emergency action plans, fire safety plans, post-exposure plans, electrical safety programs and other programs your organization needs. Written materials and plans codify your workplace safety plan and give everyone a place to refer when they have questions. These written plans can also act as the basis for employee training. You should offer employees training during onboarding, department transfers and when they take on new duties.
A written and formal workplace safety program has other benefits, too. It provides a baseline you can use when evaluating incident reports and workplace injuries. During yearly or quarterly reviews, you can examine your plan and any injuries to make adjustments as needed, allowing your organization to become safer over time.
