Effective Safety Tips for Managers and Employees – As previously mentioned, both employees and managers are responsible for the safety of their working environment. While it’s the employer’s responsibility to provide the necessary safety training and equipment, employees must also do their part and abide by certain rules to protect themselves and their colleagues from injuries, illness, or other accidents.
Assign safety tasks to their staff and take feasible precautions that will protect their workers from injury and illness. Ensure timely maintenance of equipment and a clean working environment. Regularly communicate with their workers about occupational safety hazards, OSHA regulations, and other ways of improving safety in the workplace. Regularly training employees and providing the necessary material to inform the staff about potential hazards. Offer complete supervision to ensure all equipment is used safely and that safety gear is used whenever it’s needed.
When it comes to the employees, they need to:
Always wear protective equipment when working around potential job hazards. Keep their workstations clean and put away their equipment in its designated locations. Follow a safety checklist and ensure that all safety protocols have been performed for every critical task. Not be afraid to ask questions, if needed, about certain safety procedures. Request safety training and resources in order to increase workplace safety.

What is an example of Behavioural safety?
Example of Behavioural Safety at Work – This can be demonstrated in a simple example we recently encountered. Workers had for years been walking across the back of the goods inwards area of a warehouse/factory. There were often large vehicles reversing and people still took the short cut through the vehicle route rather than walking around it. We initiated a behavioural-based safety approach by:
- Engaging with the workforce to find out why they did this, and dangers they perceived
- Showed them evidence of near misses where people narrowly escaped being hit by a vehicle
- Remarked the defined walkways
- Provided briefings, toolbox talks, posters etc to promote the message that walkways must be always used
- Led by example by managers always using the paths
- Introduced observation studies whereby everyone took a turn at watching at key times throughout the day (5 -10 minutes at a time) and reporting back how many people were seen using the walkways and how many were not cooperating
- Fed back to all teams the results, rewarding the successes whilst following up on the persistent non-conformers
Within a month of actively following this process, there were almost zero incidents where people were seen walking through the short cut.
