As an on-site workplace occupational health and safety practitioner, it’s important to outline and design a comprehensive and easy-to-understand set of policies and procedures to help prevent workplace injuries. Sourcing ideas from other employees will help them take ownership of their own responsibility to contribute to a safe workplace environment. Through careful examination and revision of on-site equipment and procedures, you’ll improve the safety of the workplace.
It’s important for your occupational health and safety practitioner to have a firm understanding of the safety, health, and environmental case law so they can make informed decisions on creating the best safety guidelines.
By defining and understanding the potential dangers of the workplace environment, you’ll see a reduction in work-related injuries, an improvement in company morale, and an increase in profitability.
