  • Chemical: gas, toxic liquids, dust, etc.
  • Biological: bacteria, virus, parasites, etc.
  • Safety: equipment, work practices, work conditions, etc.

The next step after identifying hazards is to prioritize company deficiencies. An action plan can be developed by categorizing these into:

Accidents in the workplace are not only caused by hazards or dangerous working conditions but can also be aggravated by drug and alcohol abuse. Implementing a company-wide substance abuse program helps to address these pressing problems.

A company policy indicates that the organization does not tolerate any form of substance abuse and is genuinely concern with its employee’s health. A typical policy includes:

Implementing a “No Tolerance” Rule

A “no tolerance” policy on substance abuse is a “strong” indication that the company is serious in keeping the workplace safe and healthy. This often includes the of a drug test as positive proof that the policy has been violated. However, it is recommended that you first speak with a lawyer before drafting a drug testing policy. Below are key elements in a drug test policy:

  • Evaluate the safety of personal workstation and equipment
  • Report unsafe work conditions
  • Report accidents or injuries

Accident Investigations

Safety policies should include an action plan for investigations. These should answer the following:

  • How it will be investigated
  • The investigation itself needs to answer the following questions:
  • Who was injured?
  • Where did it happen?
  • What is the injury?
  • What caused the injury?
  • Which hazard is responsible?

Module Eleven: Implement the Plan

Managers and employees working together is required for a successful safety plan. However, both must first understand their roles and responsibilities.

  • Document unsatisfactory behavior.
  • Recognize signs of substance abuse.
  • Address the problem.

Implementing a “No Tolerance” Rule

A “no tolerance” policy on substance abuse is a “strong” indication that the company is serious in keeping the workplace safe and healthy. This often includes the of a drug test as positive proof that the policy has been violated. However, it is recommended that you first speak with a lawyer before drafting a drug testing policy. Below are key elements in a drug test policy:

  • Legal requirements
  • Disability discrimination provisions
  • Collective bargaining agreements
  • Who is tested
  • When tests occur
  • Drugs tested
  • Testing procedures
  • Frequency of tests
  • Actions taken

Module Ten: Writing the Safety Plan

After carefully identifying the different hazards and understanding the legal safety requirements, the next part of the Safety in the Workplace Online course is to help you draft a safety plan. In this part of the course, we will discuss the role of managers and employees.

Management Involvement

Managers are responsible for overseeing and implementing the safety plan. As a manager you should:

  • Property maintenance
  • Involve employees in the program
  • Conduct safety surveys
  • Meet safety goals and objectives
  • Address employee concerns

Employee Involvement

Employees share equal responsibility for the success of the safety plan. They can also help improve the safety plan and identify areas for improvement. As an employee, they should:

  • Adhere to policies and procedures
  • Evaluate the safety of personal workstation and equipment
  • Report unsafe work conditions
  • Report accidents or injuries

Accident Investigations

Safety policies should include an action plan for investigations. These should answer the following:

  • Person responsible for the investigation
  • How it will be investigated
  • The investigation itself needs to answer the following questions:
  • Who was injured?
  • Where did it happen?
  • What is the injury?
  • What caused the injury?
  • Which hazard is responsible?

Module Eleven: Implement the Plan

Managers and employees working together is required for a successful safety plan. However, both must first understand their roles and responsibilities.

Selecting an Employee Representative

Employee representative are individuals who work as employee advocates. These people represent the interests of their co-workers or in this case, workspace safety. Representatives accompany OSHA inspectors or company inspectors. As part of the safety team, an employee representative’s role includes:

  • Reviewing the safety plan
  • Performing inspections
  • Recommending training
  • Reviewing accident reports
  • Developing procedures
  • Monitoring for compliance

Creating an Action Plan

  • Goals: Define your (SMART) goals for the safety plan
  • Responsibility: Assign different responsibilities.
  • Timeframe: Determine how long it should take.
  • Barriers: Consider barriers and how to work with them.
  • Communication: Determine who will communicate the progress and how often.

Module Twelve: Wrapping Up

The Safety in the Workplace Online Certificate course gives you a comprehensive look into the importance of workplace safety, identifying hazards, and implementing safety plans. The course offers you an Action Plan which can be downloaded and used as a guide for days, weeks, months, and years.
