Some areas of safety signage are absolutely not dispensible. Making people aware that there is a hazard force allows them to be on their guard and effectively control their movements in relation to the hazard. Personal protective equipment is equally essential when working with hazardous materials or, indeed, working in an environment where the potential for accidents is high, such as a building site.
Workplace safety is the sole responsibility of everyone in an organization. Companies have legal obligations to meet certain safety requirements, but many go beyond than the minimum obligations. Safety standards and procedures must be put in place, and everyone needs to follow the standards in order for them to be effective.
With all things considered, prevention of accidents in the workplace is worth the effort of implementing the seemingly draconian rules imposed upon us by the health and safety executive. Health and safety is a modern day business overhead that cannot be ignored. In a lot of industries health and safety inspections are a regular occurrence, often unannounced. In some instances there are heavy fines imposed if the guidelines are not observed.
Public and personal safety continues to be key issues for employers across the country. But even as they develop new ways to protect workers’ personal safety, accidents and contamination cases continue to occur. Every year, employers pay some $50.8 billion in wage payments and medical care for workers hurt on the job. Hundreds of customers can be affected when hygiene regimens aren’t followed – often resulting in class action lawsuits.
