General Safety Training

What is a safe workplace? It's one in which all conditions and actions result in the performance of tasks with minimal risk of injury, illness or property damage. With today's costs of doing business, the approach to safety must be as well thought out as a marketing efforts, or preparations for manufacturing a new product: management and employee commitment, clear goals, identification of issues, a coherent and cohesive strategy for success, employee involvement and comprehensive safety training programs.

Managing risks, people and property is important to the success of any business. The use of control systems to protect resources increases the chances of success. And one of the most important resources any business has is its employees.

The crucial activity of protecting the employee resource is often overlooked, however, sometimes with fatal consequences. In too many companies, the safety program is a haphazard effort — a training program here, a few posters there — or in some cases even nonexistent.

In other cases, some safety efforts have been implemented to comply with local, state and federal laws. These safety efforts may even include visible and tangible elements such as written policies and work practices regarding safety. Although it's important to comply with these regulations, compliance isn't enough to ensure that your workplace is safe.

A key part of any safety program is training. When workers understand the hazards that affect them and use the controls to minimize the risks of the task, they can improve their odds of going home safely at the end of the day.
