Commit to safety

Workers should know safety procedures are instituted to protect them, not frustrate them. Use the following tips to help your employees make a genuine commitment to safety:

  • Make safety an ongoing process. Emphasizing safety only when an inspection is scheduled allows workers to treat safety as a one-time bid for compliance. Workers need to know safety is a continuous responsibility.
  • Involve employees in safety decisions. Help workers view safety procedures more positively by asking for their input about how to incorporate safety procedures into their work routines.
  • Explain to workers why new rules are being implemented and how the rules will affect their daily routines. Don't just dictate rules and expect employees to follow them.
  • Don't treat accidents as isolated incidents. If an accident occurs, encourage employees to identify system failures rather than blame individuals and use the opportunity to create better systems in the future.
