So, a new supervisor has been appointed to oversee your workers. But as time goes by, it comes to light that his way of 'supervising' is to shout at your employees. He creates an atmosphere of fear and gives the impression that he doesn't want to talk or listen to any of the employees.
Within three days, the first workplace accident occurs!
Find out why:
Negative attitudes and discomforting behaviour, such as shouting and visible aggression, can easily cause accidents. And this isn't just from the top-down, but from the bottom-up too. In other words, employees can also be negative and aggressive to other employees, including superiors.
Do you want to be fined, jailed or have a criminal record for life?
If an accident occurs in your workplace, and the person dies, you could be charged with culpable homicide, charged penalties of R100 000 or 2 years in jail! The CEO or Owner of a company is personally accountable for health and safety at work.
Such behaviour creates an atmosphere of nervousness that can create a degree of uncertainty in the workplace. When this happens, concentration towards the actual work goes down and an accident in the workplace is just waiting to happen.
Don't wait for this to happen! Ensure that all of your staff maintain a positive and professional attitude that is focused on a balance between employee satisfaction and work efficiency.
