If things go wrong and someone is injured, workplaces look bad when the investigators arrive. Don’t wait, recommends Colin McLaren. Be proactive by engaging a skilled manager and seeking advice on developing a security regime and introducing up to date, effective safety policies. Keep staff well briefed with newsletter safety updates and regular scenario training. Undertake scenario training. Simulate a workplace accident once a month so that everyone sees what must be done, and know the protocols and procedures to minimize further harm.
Workplaces need to be proactive with:
- Developing a security regime
- Introducing a strong safety policy
- Circulate safety updates
- Provide incentives for good behavior
- Do scenario training
- Simulate a workplace accident
