How to Reduce Workplace Injuries

How to Reduce Workplace InjuriesKeeping your clients safe from Workers’ Comp claims is extremely important. These claims can stem from any profession and should not be passed off as only in need of a dangerous object. Some common workplace accidents include: tripping, straining your back or slipping on a wet floor. These are all common and costly small business claims and can easily be managed with sufficient safety practices.

According to an article in Insurance Journal, considering the risks your employees face is the first step in managing workplace injury risks. Some of the most common claims include burglary, water and freezing damage, wind and hail damage, fire, slip and falls, product liability, vehicle accident and struck by an object.

Keep your business protected by staying away from the risks above and developing a safety management plan within your staff to avoid workplace injuries. Here are a few developmental procedures to make your workplace safer.

  1. Require employees to secure all tools and equipment that is not in use.
  2. Limit access to work areas to essential employees only.
  3. Learn how to handle and dispose of chemicals properly.
  4. Regularly inspect tools and machinery.
