5 Things You Can Do This Year to Help Ensure the Safest Year Ever

It's another New Year. Hope you and your family enjoyed the holiday season.

With each New Year we have the opportunity to look back and see what we did right and maybe what we did wrong in the past year. When it comes to workplace safety, it's the perfect time to see what you can do to make 2018 the best year ever.

So let's take a look at 5 things you can do this year to help ensure the safest year ever:

  1. If you had a year where you were able to get by with no serious workplace accidents - don't believe that you've done everything you can to prevent workplace injuries. There is always more that you can do to continue preventing injuries, including reviewing near miss situations or minor injuries from last year to see how they could have been prevented.

  2. Have regularly scheduled 5-10 minute safety meetings (toolbox talks, tailgate meetings) that focus specifically on the hazards associated with your type of work. Having these short meetings will go a long way in providing continued awareness of workplace hazards to your employees.

  3. Don't make workplace so complicated that you spend all your time on paperwork rather than implementing your safety program. Everything may look good on paper but at the end of the day, it's all about everyone going home in the same condition that they started work that day.

  4. Watch out for one another. Sometimes it's easier for someone other than the one exposed to the hazard to see it, so we need to let them know their safety is important to us.

  5. Last, but not least - We need to listen when it comes to workplace safety, because listening could make the difference between going home at the end of the workday or not going home at all.

A safe workplace is all about communication. The more we review workplace hazards and the value of a safe workplace the better you can protect your company's most valuable assets - employees, reputation and profits.
