Establishing a Safe and Healthful Working Environment
Establishing a safe and healthful working environment requires every employer — large and small — and every worker to make safety and health a top priority. The entire work force — from the CEO to the most recent hire — must recognize that worker safety and health is central to the mission and key to the profitability of the American company.
Why is safety and health important for companies ?
Safety is good business. An effective safety and health program can save $4 to $6 for every $1 invested. It’s the right thing to do, and doing it right pays off in lower costs, increased productivity, and higher employee morale.
As an employer, you have a duty to protect your workers from injury and illness on the job. Protecting workers also makes good business sense. Accidents and injuries are more expensive than many realize. Costs mount up quickly. But substantial savings in workers’ compensation and lost workdays are possible when injuries and illnesses decline. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) can help you.
How to Create a Good Work Atmosphere?
It’s very difficult to be considered a great place to work. Many companies are looking for that new thing they can do to improve their office. Nowadays, both consumers and job-seekers are looking for companies that do the right thing.
One of the best ways to boost employee morale and help workers get to know each other in a non-stressful capacity is by offering an occasional company outing. This type of outing can be as low-key or as extravagant as you like, depending on your company’s culture and budget for such things.
For example, you could organize a company-paid lunch either to be catered into the office or at a favorite group-friendly restaurant nearby. Happy hours, holiday parties, birthday celebrations, and park days are other fun ways to get out of the office and bond in a non-traditional setting. However, you don’t have to even leave the office to achieve this feeling of camaraderie. Some small companies have found great success in “breakfast club” programs in which employees take turns bringing in their favorite breakfast foods (either homemade or store-bought) to share with co-workers.
Allow Schedule Flexibility
Not every business is well-suited for a virtual workforce, so don’t compromise the productivity of your company if you need your employees to arrive at work in-person. However, it is another thing entirely to give your employees the option to work remotely when they really need to because of an emergency that requires them to make up time later.
For example, if your employee’s child is sick, consider offering her the opportunity to work from home that day or come into the office over time weekend to make up for lost time. This way your employee doesn’t have to worry about missing work and wages from taking the time off and your company’s deadlines can still be met.
Sometimes receiving and getting employee feedback may feel taboo, and most people are reluctant to give advice to someone they consider a superior. Fortunately, there have been recent advancements in HR tech that provide managers with data to improve the quality of life at work.
