Safety In The Workplace Course: Introduction

This course deals with identifying hazards and finding solutions for them and includes ways to make the workplace safe.

Safety In The Workplace Course :Course Outline

Health and safety legislation differs from country to country but all employers who live in countries where there is legislation – which is just about global – are legally obligated to provide a safe working environment for their employees. If employers cannot eliminate the hazard, it must be minimised. There are a number of ways employers can do this such as warning employees about hazards, using chemical sheets, codes, alarms and labels. Employers may also test air samples and provide medical tests and exams when necessary. An up to date record of injuries at work must be kept. Ergonomics improves productivity while decreasing the injury rate by teaching employees to put less strain on their bodies. Ergonomics includes factors like bending from the knees and lifting heavy objects with your legs. We discuss violence in the workplace as pertains to health and safety, we recommend attending the Violence in the Workplace workshop presented by us for a more comprehensive study of workplace violence. Violent behaviour in the workplace accounts for a quarter of work related deaths.TIP: An effective safety plan includes four fundamentals: Analysis: Identify and eliminate or reduce any hazards, reassess this regularly. Involvement: Both employees and managers need to be involved in the safety plan. Maintenance: Keep equipment maintained and train employees how to use them. Training: Train employees on different aspects of safety and hold emergency drills. A safe work environment can only be established if the hazards are known, regular inspections of the workplace are necessary for any changes and to make sure the policies and procedures are being followed. When hazards are identified it is important to prioritise them as immediate, serious or minor. Hazards and deficiencies must be reported, addressed and followed up on. The health and safety policy of the company should include company policy on alcohol and drug addiction. This could include a program or resources for employees and managers who need help. The company policy should include which substances are banned; drug testing parameters and the consequences for violating the policy. Many companies have a no tolerance policy accompanied with drug testing that may mean that if the policy is violated once the employee could be terminated immediately. Other companies send employees for rehabilitation after a first time positive, if the policy is violated a second time the employee is terminated. We end our workshop with a module showing participants how to write a safety plan for their company, including the role of management and of employees and how to make sure that accidents are properly investigated.
