Besides the culture of your workplace and the “fulfillment factor” of your employees’ jobs, workplace safety is the key determinant of your workers’ happiness. And it’s this happiness, this genuine employment satisfaction, which determines their productivity and your company’s long-term stability, growth and success.
What is a safe workplace environment?
A safe situation is one in which the risks of workplace hazards, personal injury and property damage are low. Of course, this risk is not consistent across industries, nor is it consistent across employees in one organization. Different industries have higher levels of risk and within those industries, different types and levels of work incite higher risk than others.
What does workplace safety entail and who’s in charge?
To safeguard workers in high-risk professions -- especially those that involve engineering, chemicals, fire, electricity and defense -- organizations must undergo thorough risk assessment with standardized safety inspections to determine the best personal protective equipment, EH&S safety training and best practices.
It’s management’s responsibility to create and execute these programs. The company is also expected to issue insurance policies for its employees to help them compensate for losses that do occur and ensure financially stability.
Will your workers get home safe at the end of the day?
That’s Arbill’s mission: helping you achieve comprehensive workplace safety so each of your dedicated employees get home safe at the end of every shift.
We mentioned the following quote in one of our recent posts, but it’s worth mentioning again simply because it coincides with Arbill’s mission and your workers’ wellbeing:
“Every day in America, 13 people go to work and never come home. Every year in America, nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury from which some may never recover. These are preventable tragedies that disable our workers, devastate our families and damage our economy. American workers are not looking for a handout or a free lunch. They are looking for a good day’s pay for a hard day’s work. They just want to go to work, provide for their families and get home in one piece.”
-- Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, Workers Memorial Day speech April 26, 2012
