When It Comes to Workplace Safety...

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve talked with employers who in one way or another have told me, “The safety of my employees is the most important thing to me so I want to make sure we do this right. . .”

. . . Only to see their dedication to the cause dwindle away in a short period of time and never hear from them again until they’ve had an accident or experienced one of those OSHA visits that didn’t go well.

Now before you go getting the wrong idea about where I’m going with this, you need to give me just a moment to explain.

When it comes to workplace safety, today we have more information at our fingertips than ever before.

Computers and the internet have made it easier than ever for everyone to become an expert in safety.

In fact, it’s not uncommon for us to hear from our clients that they would like to make changes to their safety programs – not because they have experience in safety, but because they’ve read about it (which usually means they Googled it) or someone else in their industry told them (Googled it) it was what they needed do.

It is because of all our access to information that I believe we are experiencing safety overload – making it more difficult for employers to move forward in protecting their employees from hazards in the workplace.

It’s no different than you going online because you are experiencing a certain pain, only to find out that it could be a little sprain or a number of other issues including cancer.A lot of information, but not necessarily any real answers that lead to overload.

So if you really believe your employees’ safety is important – stop, take a deep breath and relax – and please don’t overthink it.

Don’t get caught up in all the information you have at your fingertips.Make workplace safety quick, easy and to the point and don’t wait until that next accident or OSHA inspection to get started.
