Explain how control measures in general are used for to prevent accidents. You may use specific examples from your workplace and link to the management of risk.
Enter a safety and health strategy
A good accident prevention and wellness program is the cornerstone for a safe working environment. The program must encompass all levels of safety and health of employees with the aim to promote the reporting of dangerous behaviors.
Training of managers and personnel.
Continuously maintain a security standard between managers and employees. Train staff as often as possible on how important it is to follow safety procedures. Additional body mechanics training helps prevent strain injuries and safe lifts and motions for workers.
Provide equipment for protection.
Equipment for personal protection is vital and should be used for recruitment, meetings and spontaneous supervision. Take the effort to educate staff how to utilize gloves, facial protection, gloves, hard helmets, safety shoes, and hearing plugs or ear muffs correctly.
Take no shortcuts
Accidents occur when staff skip procedures to accomplish a job in advance. Make sure all instructions are clear and structured to avoid unnecessary workplace malfunctions.
Monitor measures on safety
Strengthen security actions at any opportunity, such as staff meetings, monitoring and education, after initial training. Staff that respect standards and/or remain free of injuries for a certain amount of time will be rewarded.
Maintain an orderly job.
Poor housekeeping can pose major safety and health risks. There should be sufficient footmarks for the arrangement of the workplace, free of waste and stations to clean spills.
