Keeping employees safe and healthy is critical to any organization. Unfortunately, not all organizations have the resources or expertise to implement, manage, and keep up with the daily administration of a robust health and safety program. The results of not staying on top of health and safety obligations and best practice can be devastating to individual employees as well as the organization as a whole. Many organizations don’t have the tools needed to keep employees aware of their health and safety obligations, notify supervisors when tasks fall behind, and provide managers with the visibility to ensure health and safety goals are being met.
Managing health & safety programs effectively requires everyone (management, supervisors, and employees) to be aware of their role and responsibilities with respect to their job function and execute the daily activities that are required by law and best practices. So what does this translate into for most organizations?
- Performing regular inspections and creating corrective actions as needed.
- Conduct worker observations to ensure work is being performed safely.
- Investigate concerns and complaints.
- Monitor and follow up on corrective actions.
- Understand hazards and controls within the department.
- Report risks to senior management if they cannot be mitigated by supervisors.
- Ensure workers are adequately trained.
- Conduct regular safety talks.
