Regular Short Safety Courses – Key to a Safe Workplace

KEY FOR A SAFE WORKPLACeAll Employers strive to create a safe workplace for workers and eliminate unsafe conditions. The root-cause of most workplace accidents is unsafe acts rather than unsafe conditions.

Unfortunetly most investigations find the workers involved in the incidents had become complacent about safety. They’d gone on “autopilot” and stopped paying attention to what they were doing.

Complacency on the job injures and kills. And it spreads like a disease from one worker to another. One employee sees a co-worker taking a shortcut and figures, “If he can do it, why can’t I?” You can’t afford to let complacency take over in your workplace. Regular short training courses and other workplace initiatives, ie. safety meetings, can assist to break this mindset.

Through a strong commitment to regular safety training and awareness, you can create a safety culture that seeks out and eradicates complacency, replacing it with an emphasis on alertness, planning, hazard identification, problem solving, and accident prevention.
