The New Year means another year to work hard and grow with your business! This doesn’t only mean look out for yourself, but you must work and keep safe the employees and staff that help make your business function. This can be a good time of the year to review your worker occupational safety hazards again and make sure if you find anything wrong you can quickly and efficiently fix it up. Why risk the chance of having someone be harmed and receiving a $7,000 – $12,000 fine, per day, when you can eliminate the problem now.
To decide if you’re up to standards, or if you want to make sure any problems are corrected, calling a third-party inspection company to review your building is a smart move. That’s where we come in since we offer onsite inspections, and we will even reference standards that apply to the business you run.
To prepare and make sure you can avoid harm’s way, check out what your business is working with. The technology may be simple or advanced, but you should make sure every employee knows how to use the equipment efficiently and also knows the dangers that are included with each item. It will apply to anyone in any job, but it’s better to know the equipment they’re working with to not only provide better results but also provide better care and caution.
If the case comes where an incident does occur, follow a step-by-step plan to get rid of the problem, treat the problem, and fix the issue, and also deal the way workers go about their job. If you don’t have a plan set in place yet, get to creating one with the help of your coworkers.
Although there might be extra time spent trying to keep your business up to standards so employees are safe and sound, this plan will provide a happier and more positive environment for your employees to show up every day.
