The joys of being safe

An accident is an unplanned and uncontrollable act caused by unsafe actions and conditions… this is a definition I learned back in my high school days in the science lab, which by now are many, many moons ago. Every year before we got started on anything the first chapter we went over even before we were issued with text books was on safety.

Safety is a very vital element in any working environment; ask any 14year old from my old high school and they would be able to tell you that, it is also imperative that any organisation has safety provisions in case anything happens.

Safety training can be made fun! With practical examples in play, the employees get to forge strong team bonds. Employees also become comfortable with one another in addition to the lessons learned at a safety training session they can be used anywhere at any time and could possibly save a life. The level of severe injuries can also be reduced greatly and a lot of money can be saved in costing the company less in repairs and/or medical expenses.

A few safety tips that can be implemented in the work environment without any training are:

• Cap all cords and wires off the floor
• Check batteries in smoke detectors regularly
• Have a designated smoke area and keep fire extinguishers in the vicinity
• Always keep common areas clean
• Mark safety signs correctly and make sure they are visible.

With safety measures in place one is able to make sure that in case of any emergency everyone will know what to do and will most likely come out of the situation with very little (if any) damage sustained and with all company equipment replaced and/or maintained quickly to ensure that business goes ahead as usual, and that’s the joys of being safe.
