Some of the common workplace injuries around the world are as follows:
Slips and falls
Muscle strain injuries
Being hit by falling objects
Crashes and collisions
Inhaling toxic fumes
Being in contact with toxic elements
The list goes on and on…
Being alert and considerate about the maintenance of the office premises are not the only things that can prevent such accidents. Some more effective methods are as follows:
Due to the harsh weather changes and pollution, everything deteriorates. Everything has an expiration date, and to prolong that date, regular maintenance is required. You need to practice a policy where experts are invited every now & then to check all the equipment in your office. These experts should also check the walls, ceilings, paints and other structural elements to ensure that the workplace environment is a safe environment for the employees.
While designing a plan for all the safety measures and policies required to safeguard the interests of your employees, you should take into consideration their feedback and suggestions regarding doors, entry/exit(s) and lift safety because they can make a better decision for their safety, and accordingly, you could plan something out.
The architecture of your office should be designed to keep all the relevant safety measures in mind. The entry/exit points, fire safety measures and natural disaster safety measures etcetera. The workplace architecture should prevent falls or trips, and should also ensure that no strain is inflicted on the employees.
The idea of shortcuts does sound tempting because it not only saves time, but also save resources. The reason why you should avoid shortcuts when it comes to the safety of your employees because this might leave some holes in the safety measures. Don’t take safety measures lightly, save up elsewhere. Your employees’ safety shall always be on top of your priority list.
Make sure that all the equipment and material you use is of the highest quality possible because any malfunction with the equipment or the architecture can be deadly for the employees.
If your employees feel safe in the workplace, then their creativity and efficiency increase significantly because their minds are not wandering off to keep themselves safe from any mishaps.
