By starting a safety and health program, you protect one of the most valuable parts of a company: the workers! Injuries and illnesses developed in the workplace can lead to lost employees and damage your business morale, productivity, and reputation. A program directed to safety and health focuses on identifying and solving issues rather than responding to incidents. This micro-course will give you an overview of how you can take the next step to show your team that their well-being is a core organizational value.
Here, you will see the importance of:
✔ Setting goals;
✔ Workers participation;
✔ Access to information;
✔ Removing barriers.
This course was based on the "Recommended Practices for Safety and Health Programs" by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which can be found on osha.gov/safety-management.
