The safety manager isn’t the only person who should be enforcing safety in the workplace. Workers of all levels can take on a safety leadership role and influence their peers.
Since managers and supervisors can’t see everything, encouraging workers to monitor themselves and their peers can be an efficient way to keep safety at the top of everyone’s mind.
In the event of a manager having a sick day or quitting unexpectedly, having workers monitoring their own safety also helps the workplace continue to run smoothly during brief management absences.
Use SafetyNow’s resources to show workers why managers and supervisors can’t be the only ones responsible for safety. Safety really does need to be worked on by every person in the organization – both at work and at home.
The Environment and Your Health and Safety
There is a link between protecting the environment and protecting your own well-being and safety. What is good for the natural environment is usually good for you too.
That is one of the reasons why safeguarding the environment is part of your job responsibility.
In an office, this means using a minimal amount of resources such as paper and electrical energy. At a jobsite, this can mean safely disposing of hazardous substances, and reusing and recycling certain materials.
Be a Safety Leader
Injuries result when a worker fails to take responsibility for safety – by ignoring safety procedures or consuming drugs or alcohol at work, for example. You could suffer burns, broken bones, electrocution, crushing, chemical injuries, concussion or other injuries if you don’t take safety precautions.
Health and Safety Committee
When you’re concerned about unsafe situations, you can turn to health and safety committee members. In order to make needed policies, they learn about hazardous conditions and practices – through reports, inspections, reviews of injury and illness case studies and incidents such as fires or acts of violence against workers.
Learn to Think S.A.F.E.
Learn to use the S.A.F.E. approach to assess possible hazards in the workplace. This approach can be used in the workspace, and, adapted to everyday life.
No matter what job you are doing, safety is a thought process. So think S.A.F.E., which stands for See, Assess, Fix, and Evaluate. Taking a few moments to think through your task can save a lifetime of pain and regret.
Don't Get Shocked Doing it Your Way
Jim enjoyed startup assignments because he was independent by nature, and the nature of the work let him do it his way most of the time. Jim was not fond of the rules the company made him follow and felt that some of the imposed job standards just “got in the way” and slowed him down. Jim knew the company’s lockout/tagout procedure and paperwork would take him at least 20 minutes, so he did what he always did when nobody was looking: he did it ‘his way’.
