Follow These Rules to Avoid Injury at Work

Want to avoid accidents and injuries on the job? Of course you do. Try following this list of safety tips:

  • Be aware of your surroundings. Take a moment to check your environment for possible hazards such as things you could trip on or boxes or bookcases that could topple over.
  • Protect your back. You'll prevent back injuries by lifting heavy items carefully without stooping or twisting. Also, when sitting at a desk, keep your shoulders lined up with your hips.
  • Take breaks regularly. Fatigue is a major contributor to workplace accidents. Don't overdo it. Also, tackle your most difficult tasks when you're fresh and full of energy so you can concentrate effectively.
  • Use equipment properly. Be sure you know how to use the tools you're given safely. Seek instruction on anything you're unsure of.
  • Know your emergency exits. Find out the quickest way to get out of your workplace in an emergency. Report any blocked passages that might impede a fast exit.
