FACT SHEET

Keeping the Safety Plan and Your Training Up to Date

Like any ongoing project, the workplace safety plan and your training need to be evaluated at regular intervals to ensure that both address the most current workplace-safety issues. To establish a process for this, the organization needs to establish a workplace-safety committee.

The committee needs to be responsible for surveying the types of accidents and injuries that took place. The committee should also review the “near misses” reports to determine what areas are posing possible hazards.

After each survey, the committee should present a report that is disseminated throughout the organization.

Training should be scheduled for these departments and the design should include the issues pertaining to the accidents or injuries. If the survey shows departments are experiencing the accidents and injuries, those employees should be given special hands-on training. A shorter, general refresher course could also be given to the other employees in the department.

Routine in-service training for all departments will keep staff alert and sharp as to safety policies, procedures and expectations. These in-services might be an hour on one machine or a half-day on a larger topic.

Supervisors and managers are responsible for daily monitoring of workplace safety practices and should be held accountable for mentoring, advising and counseling employees who are not performing up to par. The supervisors and managers should have the authority to recommend an employee for remedial training, as required. Supervisors have their own budgets for sending the person offsite for training.
