I've never seen so much blood in my life

by , 10 July 2015
I work next to a factory.

And yesterday I witnessed the most horrific accident.
I just saw blood everywhere.

The driver of a forklift took the corner too quickly and hit one of the pallets. He fell forward. Later, when I went to find out what happened, I was told he died at the scene.

I don't want this to happen to your business, so let's see how you can avoid the same tragedy.

The responsibility of safety


Getting your workers to take care of themselves can sometimes be the hardest part of supervising them. After a while you may give up on the stubborn ones…But for leaders in safety this can never be an option!

While you're legally responsible for the safety of your employees while they're at work, your employees need to know how much responsibility they have on their shoulders in terms of working safely; both for themselves and for their colleagues.
At the end of the day, no matter how many safety precautions we take and how many measure we implement to reduce and eliminate safety hazards, people still get hurt. This is reality.

But one thing that can absolutely be done as a minimum to try to control risks is using personal protective equipment (PPE) properly.
Now, it's certainly your job as safety leader to train people in what they need to be using, how it needs to be used, when it needs to be used, and to supervise the use of the PPE, but at the end of the day, it is in the employee's hands to actually do it.
And it will be their injury if this doesn't happen.

It's so essential to teach your employees the basics so they understand the aim of what they might consider to be a lot of red tape!
So while we have our procedures and policies and records and slogans, it's so important to have the physical measures in place that can make a real difference in preventing injuries and illnesses in your workplace.

How to get your employees to comply with OHS law
 
If you're currently experiencing a problem with this, the best thing to do is rewrite your contracts so they include an extra clause. It should state that failure to adhere to health and safety regulations may lead to disciplinary action and/or possible dismissal.
 
You'll need to enforce this rule and punish offenders accordingly if you don't want employees to feel that they're being singled out.
 
Also make sure that employees understand they could be fined or sentenced to a jail term if an inspector finds them guilty of negligence.
