2013 SHRM Show Reflections

The 2013 WISHRM Show has come and gone, but we are still swimming with knowledge from the wide variety of seminars and people stopping by our display. Royal Recognition conquered the “HR Waters” (the theme of the show) by setting up our booth with banners, video demo and a wading pool full of ducks and prizes.

Workplace Safety: Not Only For Big Business

All too often, smaller companies have a habit of not emphasizing the importance of safety in the workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSHA) applies to every business in the U.S. – not just those in manufacturing or warehousing!

Place warning signs near wet floors or trip hazards to prevent accidents

Here are a few simple steps to keep your workplace safe:

  1. Appoint “Disaster Chiefs” (people in the office who know CPR, in charge of calling police/fire department, etc.) and let your employees know where to turn during a crisis. Review annually in case the persons appointed are no longer around to perform their duties.
  2. Know the fire escape plan and do at least one fire drill a year. This will let you know the faults in your plan and correct them before an incident actually happens.
  3. Do at least one tornado drill per year. Stress its importance during “Severe Weather Preparedness Week” (for 2013, March 3rd – 9th) for a more real-world tie in.
  4. Have First Aid supplies on hand and check to make sure they are well-stocked and not expired.
  5. Assess your workplace at least once a year, looking for trip hazards and better ways to organize in case of a disaster. Make sure to highlight these areas appropriately or fix them to decrease the chance of accidents.

In an exceptionally safe workplace, consider rewarding your employees with one of the many safety awards Royal Recognition offers. By focusing on health and safety, we can avoid the human and business costs of workplace injuries and improve productivity. Stay safe everyone!
