ACCIDENTS IN THE WORKPLACE - WHAT EMPLOYERS SHOULD WATCH OUT FOR
Accidents in the Workplace
An accident is any unplanned event that results in personal injury or property damage.
Workplace safety programs are designed to prevent workplace accidents by improving the work environment and employee work practice. For example, the proper use of signs or symbols to indicate specific workplace hazards are essential ways to helping employees spot possible hazards and avoid workplace accidents.
Also, safety meetings also provide a great way to communicate safe practices to employees and prevent accidents.
Also, it’s a good idea for employers to keep accidents records as this could help with possible lawsuits in the future. Further, training employees to adapt safe practice will also help prevent accidents.
