Improving Your Organization's Safety in the New Year

Did your organization resolve to be safer in 2014?  Are you mystified about what can be done to reach that goal?  There are four key steps in managing and preventing accidents in your workplace.

1. Tracking

Being diligent about tracking every accident in a detailed manner can pay off.  The more information you collect, the more you can analyze trends and prevent reoccurrence.  Our post on The Anatomy of a Workplace Investigation provides detailed guidance on what your organization should be tracking for each accident report.

2. Evaluating

After all of the information about the accident has been collected, safety personnel should evaluate the incident.  Look at it from a broader view, notice what event or string of events led to the accident.  Seek out connections.

3. Understanding

To be useful, accident reports need to be fully understood by safety personnel and the safety management.  Is there any way that the accident could happen again?  Was the injured/ill worker at complete fault?  Was this just a total fluke?  If there is even a slim chance that the accident could happen again, begin to understand what types of preventive measures could be taken to avoid reoccurrence.

4. Implementing

Once you have concrete preventive measures or policy changes decided upon, figure out the best way to implement them.  Maybe it's fixing something, or possible it's just an education issue.  Be clear and specific about what needs to be done to prevent future accidents and thoroughly implement it.

HealthRx's Workplace Injury and Illness Manager takes the difficulty out of accident tracking, evaluating, understanding, and implementing. Click here to learn more!
