Statistics show that safety training, or we should say, high quality training saves lives, reduces injuries, and ultimately saves money for those companies who are investing in it wisely.
As a safety trainer or coordinator you likely are responsible for the majority, if not all the progress that your company makes with regards to safety awareness and workforce training. Safety Services is designed to help you in this task by providing informative articles and resources to help you in your safety training program.
Workplace safety can be a priority for a company or a necessary inconvenience to production quotas and the demands of running a business. The fact is however, without an emphasis on safety, costs will rise, expenses will increase, and any company that is well managed will put a priority on training in safety related issues simply because it’s not only the responsible thing to do, but it also makes sense when factoring in the bottom line costs and savings.
Companies must work within the law, and while some regulations may seem complex, the fact is, in order to avoid penalties and ultimately reduce accidents, it’s important to comply with the established programs.
People don’t spend all of their time at work, and many statistics show that numerous accidents happen going to and from the workplace, and most happen right at home. This is shocking but true. The one place that is often thought of as the most secure and safe place for us, can actually be one of the most dangerous.
With this reality in mind, we’ll discuss ways that you can stay safe in the home as well. Safety quite frankly, doesn’t have to be defined by a specific location necessarily. For instance, whether you are at work or at home, a fire safety assessment is a good idea. Many other correlations exist between home and work as well. While it’s true that certain parameters exist that are unique in many work settings, safety is more of a mindset that a person carries with them everyday. Potential issues that were once overlooked, may not be recognized and dealt with before they ever result in an accident. Developing a prevention based mindset truly can be a life saving practice.
