Solid safety plan is key for businesses
Posted by Jason Nicholls
A solid safety plan is essential for businesses, an expert has suggested.
Such work is particularly important for companies in the construction sector, with John Meola, occupational safety & health manager with the Louis Berger Group, advising that the plans should correspond with companies' level of risk exposure.
"It is also instructive to keep in mind that assuring safety on the job is a direct management responsibility. There's no such thing as saying to your employees 'you are responsible for your own safety'," Mr Meola said.
He continued by saying that the above approach acts as an "evasion of responsibility" and represents "weak management".
Mr Meola stressed that managers are accountable for safety performance and the prevention of accidents.
There are many measures that businesses can take to boost the safety of their workers, such as installing warning signs.
Once a safety plan has been introduced, it should also be reviewed regularly in order to search for any possible weaknesses.
