Regular safety drills and first aid training are a necessity, it keeps the workers always prepared and on their feet during a hazard. Pre-preparation also helps to maintain and manage the problem in a sorted manner, the workers are less confused and know what steps and actions need to be taken next.
“Do not think because an accident hasn’t happened to you that it can’t happen. “
Have an action plan – like in case of fire drills, which exit staircases can be taken by which section of the building. This will not only help reduce the panic that sets in during an emergency but will rush the exit process ensuring everyone’s safety.
“Cultivate a habit of caution.”
Protection Gear for Everyone:
A helmet and safety boots never really hurt anyone, did they? Making safety gear compulsory for all the workers is a small price when compared to the huge damage it can do to someone’s life.
“Carefulness costs you nothing. Carelessness may cost you your life.”
It is compulsory for the manager of the site to inspect work equipment regularly. It is a responsibility to procure latest equipment, and check the wear and tear on a daily, weekly or fortnightly basis.
“Safety is a cheap and effective insurance policy.”
