How to Prevent Injury When Working in a Factory

By | Workplace Safety

As an employee you have the right to a safe working environment, no matter the nature of your job. Most of our clients at Losi & Gangi have been personally injured as a result of construction accidents, slip and fall accidents, motor vehicle accidents or other job-related injuries. Here are some tips on how to prevent injury when working in a factory:

– Keep Workspaces Clean
A cluttered, unclean work area makes it difficult to maneuver around and workers are more prone to hazards when it is messy in the workspace.  Keep shared areas clean and tidy to prevent any accidents.

– Proper Signage
There should be proper signs around work areas in noticeable places and in spaces where specific procedures should be practiced.

– Report Dangers and Accidents
It is important that employees report dangers and accidents that they come in contact with so that others do not come across the same issues.

– Provide Proper Training
Make sure all staff are properly trained for their jobs including how to use equipment and follow safety procedures.

– Provide Proper Equipment
Employees must have on proper safety equipment for the job at all times.

– Avoid Shortcuts
A lot of people take shortcuts when they’re familiar with their job or are in a hurry. Even though some safety precautions may be time consuming, they can be the difference of a life or death situation.

– Get the rest you need
Drowsiness and overworked employees contribute to a lot of the accidents that happen in factories. Be sure to get as much rest as possible to perform the job tasks to your full capability.
