Improve Employee Safety Habits With These 3 Tips

22 May
This year’s theme for North American Occupational Safety and Health week was Make Safety a Habit. Check out these ideas from the workers’ compensation provider Texas Mutual Insurance Company to help improve employee safety habits.
  1. See something, say something. Empower your employees to speak up and review the methods in place to report concerns or hazards. Building an environment of open communication supports a safe workplace. You want reporting to become a habit. Recognize reporting and encourage employees to speak directly with their supervisor or safety representative.
  2. Be consistent. To keep safety top of mind, hold regular meetings and provide consistent training. Habits won’t become fully formed in a quarterly meeting, however. Provide resources and enforce the safety practices employees are learning.
  3. Encourage wellness. Safety and wellness go hand-in-hand. When employees hydrate, eat well, and stay active, they feel better, are happier, and likely will stay alert about safety on the job. If an injury does occur, a fit employee stands a better chance of recovering more quickly.
