Tips to Keep Your Workplace a Safe Environment

Business Workplace Safety Precautions

Though some jobs come with more risks than others, it’s important to stay safe wherever you work. Working in an office comes with its own set of occupational safety hazards, and being aware of them can help to mitigate the risk. As a business owner, it’s important to ensure that your team knows how to stay safe at all times, since your business could suffer the consequences. Use these workplace safety tips to help you stay harm-free.

Ensure Breaks

Employees are entitled to breaks at certain times during their shifts. If they are pressured or too involved with their work, they may forget to take a break. It is your job to ensure that they are not overworked and have the opportunity to take a break and step away from their work.

Develop a Plan

Make sure every team member understands what needs to happen should there be a crisis, whether by a violent intruder or natural disaster. A written plan of action should be included in policies and procedures. It is a good idea to practice a drill every couple of months to ensure employees know what to do in action.

Wear the Right Safety Gear

It’s critical that team members have access to the right gear. From back support when lifting heavy items to gloves and goggles to keep eyes and hands safe, there are many safety items to invest in. It’s equally important to wear these articles of clothing when working to stay as safe as possible while on the job.

Mark Exits

Make sure exits are clearly marked and that all employees know where they are located – even on the floors that they do not visit regularly. Knowing how to quickly get out of a building in an emergency is an important element of workplace safety that could save lives. 

Ensure Employees Know How to Protect Themselves

While many businesses encourage employees to take a self-defense course, others go one step further. If it’s not against company policy, allow employees to bring their own personal pepper spray onsite. Remind employees to keep pepper spray out of sight and only use it in the event of an emergency.
