If accidents terrorise your workplace, here's what to do about them

by , 03 September 2014
Accidents can seriously affect your company by reducing productivity, causing damage, and even putting your employees out of action.

If such accidents repeatedly terrorise your company you need to do something about them. And I don't just mean you should throw another safety precaution at it.

You need to deal with these accidents in such a way that'll ensure they don't even happen again.

Here's how...


To prevent an accident from happening again, get to the bottom of what caused it

Whenever an accident happens in your workplace, you must do an accident investigation. This investigation will help you identify the cause of the accident.
It'll help you do this because you can evaluate real evidence and witness testimony to discover the cause of the accident.
Once you identify the cause of the accident, you must discuss it with your health and safety committee. Together, you can decide on the best plan of action for dealing with whatever caused the accident. 
This will guide you in the next part of this process...

Do your first aiders know what it is?

This is the next part of the process to deal with workplace accidents

To finally put a stop to those workplace accidents, you must take your health and safety committee's recommendations and use them to put effective safety precautions in place.
These safety precautions will be specifically to the cause of the accident. This is far more effective than just putting general safety measures in place and hoping they work. 
If you do this, you can effectively deal with those accidents that keep terrorising your workplace and ensure they never cause another problem again.
