Without reminders, many employees don’t make safety a priority. A brief weekly safety meeting, or email reminders for remote workforces, can help employees think “safety” and reduce the number and severity of incidents. A five-minute meeting can remind employees about the dangers of their duties that day. For example, reminding employees to use a spotter or pull through parking spaces so they avoid backing up can dramatically reduce accidents. Check with your insurance professional for prepackaged safety tips and lessons specific to your industry.
Review any recent losses to find areas where you can improve. If your last few injuries were falls, remind employees to close file drawers, keep walkways clear, and immediately tackle spills. Keep safety front of mind for employees. The higher priority your team leaders and managers place on safety, the fewer accidents and injuries you’ll experience. It’s an easy way to save!
