Make your property a secure place with these workplace safety tips.
June is National Safety Month. To keep the public safe from accidental injuries, the occasion calls for measures to protect people from harm. Take steps to secure your commercial property. Check out these tips to keep your building safe.
With so many electronics and appliances, it’s not uncommon for a fire to start on a commercial property. Implement measures to keep your fire risk to a minimum. Safely store any combustible material, check electrical wires regularly, and be mindful of the kitchen. Additionally, implement safeguards against fires. Verify that the fire alarms are working properly, that the emergency exits are properly labeled, and that fire extinguishers are readily available.
Prevent Slips & Falls.
All walking surfaces must be well maintained to prevent slips and falls. Clear any walkways of clutter, report leaks, and spills, look for any worn or damaged flooring, and install anti-slip mats to reduce the risk of falls. The more precautions you take, the safer you keep everyone.
Keep Clutter to a Minimum.
A hallway full of boxes or an office full of papers can be dangerous. Too much clutter can pose a fall danger as well as an ergonomic danger. The more clutter that you have, the greater the danger. Make an effort to keep your office space clean and clutter-free.
Be Wary of Falling Risks.
It’s not just people that you’re worried about falling. Falling objects are extremely dangerous. If you keep items up high, take precautions to stay safe. Stack items by putting the heaviest items on the bottom and never keep something up high near employees, on desks or tables, or in walkways. Additionally, you can install a toe board or a toe rail to help keep things from falling.
