Office With Glass WallsWhile the primary function of your workplace is to conduct business, you must maintain a safe environment if you wish for operations to run smoothly. Yet, that may not be a simple task. Workplace safety is a multi-faceted endeavor that includes the building itself, physical and digital assets, cleanliness and the well-being of your staff. We've collected some ideas to help you boost the safety of your workplace.

Security

  • Ensure the building is secured with commercial-grade locks and dead bolts on entry points.
  • Consider installing a security alarm with monitoring services if you don't already have one.
  • For an extra security boost, consider installing security cameras, glass break detectors and outdoor lighting that's motion-activated.
  • Electronic ID cards make it easy to allow access to employees, while keeping out unwanted visitors.

Training

  • New employees should undergo thorough training before using non-standard equipment and/or hazardous materials.
  • Existing employees should go through periodic training seminars as a refresher on safety measures.
  • Discuss the rules of conduct and ensure employees have access to these guidelines.

Drills

  • Plan for emergency situations by organizing drills. Fire drills should be conducted every six months. Many companies also run through tornado drills annually.
  • Establish a chain of communication for emergencies, including employees, customers and vendors.
  • Employees should know where to meet once the building is evacuated.

Cleanliness

  • A tidy workplace reduces the hazard of trips and slips. Keep walkways free of clutter and coil cords neatly against the walls.
  • The workplace should also be cleaned regularly to eliminate the spread of germs.
  • A clean, tidy workplace helps keep employees healthier, both physically and mentally. In fact, studies have shown that cleanliness helps reduce anxiety and stress.
Keeping your business' assets and staff safe is reason enough to put more emphasis on workplace safety. But in addition, a safe workplace may also be eligible for a business insurance discount. Talk to your agent for more details on how you can save.
