    How to teach your employees about health and safety

    As important as it is that you know the health and safety rules and procedures in your workplace, it is also important that you are able to teach them to others, to be sure that everyone is as safe as they can be. If you run a company then accidents are your responsibility, and you may find yourself on the receiving end of a compensation claim if an employee injures themselves because you have not taught safety properly. Here are some ways in which you can easily teach new employees about safety around the work environment.

    Teach by example

    You can walk someone around your workplace and talk them through the health and safety rules and practices, but the best way to teach someone is to adhere to the rules yourself. If you tell someone a certain way to use a machine, for example, and then constantly flout this rule yourself, then they cannot be blamed for doing the same.

    Be prepared to answer questions

    Make it known that you are always available to answer any questions your employees may have about their job, to prevent someone from doing something wrong simply because they didn’t have anyone to ask at the time. Have an open door policy and make it known that you should always be consulted before making health and safety decisions.

    Put up written reminders

    Any health and safety issues should be pointed out in an obvious way whenever you can, so that your employees do not forget. Having posters up which state the health and safety guidelines will help your employees to remember as they go about their day.

    Teach others to teach

    Have other employees teach new employees the health and safety rules when they begin. If you are learning to teach others then you will pay far more attention than if you are simply learning for yourself, and this way you can be sure the information has hit its mark.
