Basic Health and Safety Tips for Protecting Yourself at Work

By unknown, Jun 5 2015 03:23PM

No matter what industry you work in, health and safety measures are important for you to keep in mind if you want to avoid hazards. In every industry there are many different kinds of jobs, some of them are more dangerous than others, but you should keep in mind that every job has its hazards and if you are not careful, you can end up hurting yourself or the people around you. Paying attention however, will help you to prevent hazards and trust us, it's better to prevent than to deal with the consequences that can occur.


There are a few things that you need to know. For example, when you will get hired, you must know that is the duty of your employer to give you everything that it's needed in order to do your job properly. You must receive proper work equipment and, if needed, your employer should even offer you training courses that will help you do your job more safely.


Be alert and always thinking about safety. You should keep an eye on everything that happens at your workplace. Pay attention on everything that could lead to an accident. You should also keep an eye on your colleagues too. An accident caused by one of your colleagues could also involve and harm you.


When it comes to things that might be unsafe, the best thing to do is to stay away. If something seems to be unsafe to you, then you should stand back and think about the best way possible to deal with the situation.


You should also keep in mind that it’s not only employers who have legal duties to uphold health and safety. An employer may well have a wide range of duties, but employees have their duties too.


They must:


Cooperate with the employer or the person that is responsible with safety, health and welfare at work.


Make sure that they are not under the influence of any intoxicant that could make them a danger to themselves or their colleagues.


Never carry out any unsafe and unauthorized activity that can endanger their own safety or health or of others.


Make sure that they use the machines provided at the workplace in a proper way. Employees must do this with all work equipment.


Be sure to report any machine break downs or safety issues.


Report any event that might endanger safety and health as quickly as possible.
