Reduce employee compensation costs
If you are running a business then there is always the possibility that you will have to pay out compensation to employees should someone be injured in an accident in the office. It is important that you as the employer know how to keep the office safe, and have a full set of health and safety rules that employees are trained in so that you can keep everyone safe and ensure there are no accidents for employees to claim compensation on.
- Work out how to get employees back to work quickly. If an employee has had an accident and is out of work then you are required to pay their wage whilst they are recovering, as well as paying the wage of someone to fill in their position. If you can work with your employee to get them back to work, perhaps on different hours, or with extra help, then this will save on compensation costs.
- Work with a health and safety supervisor. Employ a health and safety supervisor, or appoint one out of your existing staff, and then work with this person to put together a comprehensive health and safety plan which can be distributed through the office.
- Train employees properly. Even if you have health and safety rules in place, if an employee isn’t properly trained they may struggle with their job and have an accident. When a new employee starts, dedicate time to getting them trained up properly.
- Have a first aid trained professional on site. If you have someone trained to administer first aid then this can stop any injuries from getting any worse due to having to wait to see a doctor.
