Health and safety is VITAL to every workplace
Whether large or small, all businesses will benefit from effective safety and health training at all levels of the organization. Identifying and eliminating hazards is the key to a safe workplace, and in order to know what to look for it’s critical that EVERYONE is properly trained. Managers and supervisors need to understand their responsibilities, workers need to know what tasks they are authorized to perform and how to identify unsafe conditions, and even contractors and temporary workers need to be informed of the hazards they may encounter.
In just 2014, nearly 51 thousand new occupational injury cases were reported in Maryland alone.
While many of these incidents were relatively minor, 73 of those cases resulted in fatalities – people who left for work but never made it back home to their families. While this is most certainly a dismal statistic, the fact of the matter is that both the number of recordable incidents and workplace fatalities has been steadily declining over the past decade, due in no small part to increased hazard awareness and regular safety training.
Can the people in your organization readily identify the hazards that are all around them?
