Employee safety calls for a commitment from management. But what does that kind of commitment look like? The Maine Department of Labor’s SafetyWorks website spells it out:
Policy: Create a written policy emphasizing the importance your organization places on workplace safety and health.
Resources: Commit the time, money, and personnel necessary to protect your workforce.
Meetings: Hold regular safety meetings with specific expectations. Let employees know they will be expected to follow safe work practices on the job. Follow them yourself.
Listen: Respond to all reports of unsafe or unhealthy conditions or work practices.
