Make a Resolution for Safety
What’s your resolution? Exercise more? Spend less? Take up a new hobby? Why not make a resolution for better workplace safety?
The benefits of a safer work environment are countless. According to OSHA, “The main goal of a safety and health program is to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses, and deaths, as well as the suffering and financial hardship these events can cause for workers, their families, and employers.”
When someone gets hurt, it affects morale, productivity, workers’ compensation costs, lost work time, and more. Improving the training practices, increasing signage, and installing machine guards are just a few of the ways you can increase safety for your employees, which yields benefits for everyone.
