Safe and healthy work environments for your employees should be a top concern as a business owner. It’s important to keep in mind what your employees need on a day-to-day basis to avoid any health or safety issues that may arise.
OSHA, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, provides recommended practices for safety and health programs. Management Leadership is a core program advising business owners, managers and supervisors to make worker safety and health a core organizational value to ensure success, eliminate hazards, protect your workers and improve the workplace.
There are four action items to consider:
Action item 1: Communicate your commitment to safety and health in the workplace by writing a clear policy for your employees to follow and abide by.
Action item 2: Establish specific goals and objectives to improve workplace safety and health. It’s crucial to make sure everyone is on board and focused on specific actions that ensure success.
Action item 3: Provide resources needed to implement the safety and health program into your daily business routine. This will vary based on the needs and development of your business.
Action item 4: Establish roles and responsibilities that provides a positive environment and open communication about safety and health between yourself, your managers and your workers.
