Perfect time to look back, plan ahead to stay safe

The end of year presents the perfect opportunity to reflect on accomplishments achieved through your safety and health program. Looking back on safety performance in the last year can help set goals for 2019. Is your safety and health program as robust as you would like it to be?

Where are you now as a company in health and safety, and where do you want to be this time next year?

Items to review are:

  • Your health and safety policy; it should be the basis of your company’s safety and health action plan.
  • Do your employees have the training they require?
  • Are you monitoring progress – for example, by inspecting the workplace regularly or investigating accidents or ‘near misses’ – to learn from your mistakes?
  • Have you set a date to review your safety and health performance against your plans?

Remember, your advisor is an excellent resource for you when reviewing your safety and health program. Please contact your regional advisor for any questions you may have, or for any training you may require. WORKSAFELY® is here to assist your company to go from ‘good to great’ for safety performance.
