How can you successfully encourage safety in the workplace?

As you work to build and emphasize a lasting company culture in your Kentucky business, one of your primary points of focus should be on employee safety. Embedding this critical concept into the core of your culture is an excellent way to positively remind your employees of the importance of abiding by protocols designed to protect them and create a productive work environment. 

While there are lots of different ways to inform your employees about worker safety, your approach to providing educational opportunities and trainings can make all the difference in how effective your message is delivered and accepted. According to EHS Daily Advisor, some of the ways that you can encourage your employees to stay safe without coming across abrasive, include the following:

  • Build safety into your culture: Rather than casually mention safety or avoid discussing safety topics until "the right time," do yourself a favor and imbed safety protocols into your culture. When your culture embraces and integrates safety measures at the core, your employees will clearly understand your expectations.
  • Ask for employee feedback: Your employees are the people who are getting things done and maintaining organizational activities. Because they are so familiar with the everyday tasks, ask for their feedback regarding safety practices. Chances are they have suggestions for things you can do to enhance safety and productivity.
  • Be a problem solver: If there is ever a situation where a worker's safety has been compromised, do your due diligence and identify the root cause of the problem. Ask yourself what may have caused the hazard and if it could be prevented in the future. 
  • Maintain a positive perspective: Praise your employees when they are taking initiative to stay safe and protect each other from harm. When discussing topics related to safety, do so with enthusiasm and positivity to encourage acceptance among your workforce.
