Keep your employees safe by doing regular risk assessments

The reason your employees don't feel safe is because you've failed to deal with the risks they face at work. 
The only way you can deal with these risks is to do a risk assessment
To do this you must watch your employees at work together, with your health and safety representative. You must then record all the risks you see. 
You can now deal with them and give your employees the safety they need.
But when it comes to your employees' happiness, there's one more thing you can do.

Involve your employees in the risk assessment

During your risk assessment, speak to a few of your employees. Ask them about what dangers they face and what they think you should do to improve workplace health and safety.
This gives your employees the feeling of having being involved in your health and safety process. 
When your employees feel like you've heard them on matters like these it does a lot for their happiness.
With the simple action of doing a risk assessment, you can repair your employees' safety and happiness.
