Workplace safety practices involve preventing injury and illness to employees and visitors in the workplace. Whether optional or required by law, developing and maintaining an effective workplace safety committee is a vital part of ensuring workplace safety. Read our LP Reference Note - Safety Committees for tips on building a safety committee.
Emergencies can arise from both natural and man made reasons. Having an emergency preparedness program, inclusive of a medical response team and first aid program, is recommended. See our LP Reference Note - Management Guide to Emergency Response on how to develop an emergency preparedness program.
For a first aid program, the purpose is to have trained personnel readily available for a quick response to an injury or sudden illness and render limited intervention while awaiting the arrival of emergency medical service. Read LP Reference Note - First Aid in the Workplace for more details on creating a first aid program.
