Follow these Mandated Rules for a Safer Workplace
A safe workplace is every employee's right and one of management's most serious responsibilities. Here's some of what the Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires to protect workers from illness and injury on the job:
- Protective equipment. Employees should wear all protective clothing and gear provided by their employers: safety goggles, gloves, helmets, and so forth.
- Fire alarms. Alarms, as well as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, should be clearly marked, easily accessible to everyone, and kept in good working condition at all times.
- Electricity. Use surge protectors, not extension cords. Make sure electrical cords aren’t placed where they can trip anyone. Check outlets regularly for possible damage.
- Cleaning supplies. Secure all cleaning supplies and other potentially hazardous chemicals in safe, clearly labeled cabinets.
- Floors. Make sure floors are clear of obstacles, loose rugs, and slippery areas where employees and visitors might trip and fall. Clean any spills immediately.
- Temperature. Thermostats should be in good working order to maintain comfortable temperatures for your workforce.
