Effective Safety and Health programs need to highlight accident avoidance. To do so requires appropriate task efficiency from everyone in the office. So, be sure to equip employees to handle diverse situations. They need to know about the products and equipment they deal with, understand threats and how to control those dangers.

Each staff member needs to understand the following:

You will not expect an employee to carry out a job until you have given them correct job instructions. You will then authorize them to carry out that task.No employee should carry out a job that appears risky.

How to Incorporate Safety and Health Programs into Training Sessions

You might have the ability to combine training for Safety and Health programs with other training sessions. This depends on the kinds of hazards present in your work environment. Here are some actions to consider:

  • Ask your OSHA state consultant to suggest training for your worksite. The consultant may be able to carry out training for your employees.
  • You need to train your employees on every exposure to potential hazards. This will allow them to safeguard themselves against those threats. Then, you can have employees acknowledge the training.
  • Pay particular attention to your new employees and to employees who are moving to new roles within the organization. Given that these employees are working in new operations, they are the ones most likely to get injured.
  • Train your managers to understand all the threats faced by the workers and how to strengthen training with quick suggestions and refreshers, or with disciplinary action, if needed.
  • Make sure that your leading management staff understands their safety and health duties and how to hold secondary supervisory staff members accountable for their actions.
