Creating a safe workplace relies on teamwork. The more employees are engaged with an organisation's safety processes, the better its overall performance will be.
The difficulty lies in getting employees interested in the details, no matter how minor or mundane they may seem. This includes everything from big picture safety initiatives, to simple processes like hazard identification. Whether it's a chemical spill or box that isn't quite stacked properly on a high shelf, employees have to have clear processes for marking the hazards and alerting other staff. However, the most important thing to remember about hazard identification is that it's not something that happens once.
