2020 has brought a whole new meaning to what workplace health and safety really means. Businesses everywhere have begun implementing new and updated safety measures to keep both their employees and workplace safe from COVID-19. A recent survey has even found that business leaders are more focused on workplace safety in 2021 than ever before. Here are a few of the ways you can better prioritize workplace safety this year.
Review Your Current Health & Safety Procedures
Once your safety procedures are in place, it’s important to continue to monitor and analyze them. Every season can bring a new set of health and safety hazards that, if left unseen, can become significant liabilities. This spring, we suggest taking a walk through the floors of your workplace. Be on the lookout for any new safety concerns or even any procedures that are being ignored or overlooked by employees.
Schedule a Free Professional Consultation with EHS Management
Many new business owners may not have the time or resources to monitor their workplace’s health and safety. At EHS Management, we believe businesses should have access to environmental health and safety services regardless of their budget. We offer free consultations to get to know your business, so we can best determine a measurable goal that suits your company’s needs.
Communicate with Employees on all Safety Procedures
Once safety procedures are put in place, it’s important keep your employees informed. Before making safety decisions, it’s also important to ask for your team’s input. Those who are more familiar with certain machinery or procedures may offer more insight on where they see a need for safety improvement. This can help improve both workplace communication and overall safety.
