With 2020 right around the corner, many people are starting to think about New Year’s resolutions or checking goals off their lists. Even at the workplace, the New Year is a time to think about what can be done better than last year to increase efficiency and to improve the bottom line.
If you’re responsible for safety measures at your business, now’s a great time to make a list of the things you’re hoping to achieve in 2020. Here are some key tips for how to make workplace health and safety resolutions that matter.
Conduct a Thorough Review & Assessment
The only way to know what your new goals should be is to evaluate the workplace. Survey the physical space for any concerns, take count of incidents and reports from prior years and assess which steps will need to be taken to advance and improve safety measures and protect worker health in the future.
Ask for Staff Input
Going straight to the source- those who work ground level each day is the best way to hear about safety concerns or where improvements can be made. If you’re going to be revising and enforcing new policies it’s best to get every onboard and feeling included in the process for the best adherence to the rules.
Inspect, Update & Refill Safety Supplies
Depending on the industry you work in, you may need to keep updated records for the inspection of safety equipment and the expiration of supplies. Even if you’re not in a regulated industry, it’s important to take time as you’re making resolutions for the year to ensure that you’re safety cabinets are stocked and that all necessary training and equipment are available to employees.
