4 Tips to Prevent Accidents at the Workplace

4 Tips to Prevent Accidents at the WorkplaceAccidents at the workplace happen more often than you think and take a toll on companies. When working at heights or coming into contact of hazardous materials and equipment, safety at the workplace is the most important task. With each incident, companies suffer legal issues, financial loss, damaged reputation and more. There are some general actions to ensure that workplace accidents and injuries don’t happen, no matter what type of environment you work in.

Always stay alerted and rest in time

Stay awake and stay alerted. Timely rest can help to complete tasks adequately, enhance your performance and avoid inattention and related incidents. Don’t get involved in recycling, this is a path of errors and misses. Most of the people who become involved with accidents at the workplace are those who feel tired and sleepy.

Wear proper uniform

Many jobs require special dress code – uniforms. This is not casual. Workers should be more vigilant about the wearing of appropriate safety uniform and other protective equipment when working. Otherwise, they are prone to accidental cuts, burns, bumps, and so on. All these in turn can lead to more serious consequences.

Follow instructions and pay attention to details

Even if you’re an expert at your job, you always need to follow all instructions and regularly brush up on knowledge. Work with diligence and full awareness of your job. Following clear rules and paying attention to detail can help you to avoid making mistakes that can lead to injuries, serious incidents and subsequent legal issues.

Participate in emergency drills and safety trainings

Emergency drills provide the knowledge how to act if the emergency arises, avoid accidents and protect yourself. Workers shouldn’t take safety drills for granted, and take this seriously. Also, managers must insist on regular and full-fledged safety trainings and exams over the gained knowledge.

Keep safe both employees and the business itself

The tips above concern each employee and his or her personal safety. And how to save the business itself? Modern safety apps can help with this.

Safety inspection apps allow managers and business owners to ensure safety in the operation environment and protect the business itself from legal impacts. Regular inspections are a key of safe workflow. Safety inspection apps help easily and quickly collect necessary information, process it and instantly use for decision making. Such data is more timely and accurate. Also, safety inspection apps allow users to store the data and have a constant access to it.

How Mobile Forms can save a life

 

 

Keeping a safe work environment can save a life.

The U.S department of labor began OSHA, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, in 1971. In terms of workplace safety, this was a big deal. Accurate numbers were not kept at the time, but there were around 14,000 deaths every year in workplace situation. Since OSHA’s inception, workplace fatalities have dropped a staggering 62 percent, while occupational illness and injury has declined around 40 percent. Not bad considering OSHA was one of the first of its kind!

Mobile forms can help with efficiency when it comes to safety.  Because OSHA spreads itself across so many different industries, Snappii was able to utilize their standard practices to create the templates you can find in our editor. Inspecting heavy equipment, scaffolding, chemical hazards, and even lockout/tagout procedures can all become more efficient with the use of mobile forms. Mobile forms also provide supervisors the opportunity to keep track of diligent workers, and identify ones that aren’t.

No clearance until you finish Lockout/Tagout Procedures

If you have to service or perform maintenance on a piece of equipment that could potentially be dangerous, the machine has to be isolated and made inoperative. Most companies use a lockout procedure to ensure employees don’t skip this step. A tag, or lock, is fixed to the device to show that it should not be started again until the tag is removed.

Where do mobile forms come in? Mobile forms force workers to remove the tag from the machine before the work order can be accessed by prohibiting the worker from continuing until the required fields are recorded. Because you can check where the form is coming from, mobile forms also ensure that a specific employee serviced a specific machine. Managers will be happy to hear that mobile forms will get submitted right to their inbox – no need to clutter your desk with paper.

Safety against falling

Geronimo no-mo. OSHA’s reports state that injury and fatality by falling is the leading injury amongst construction workers. To avoid this, scaffolding, ladders, stairways – basically anything that gets you off the ground – is subject to rigorous inspection before use. Scaffolding, for example, has to be verified to support not only its own weight, but 4 times its maximum load.

Mobile forms can facilitate this process by making the inspection a breeze. The worker checking the scaffolding can fill out all necessary fields’ right in their smartphone. Want more details? It’s easy to add video and picture as a requirement to your mobile forms, ensuring that the best practices are being used to secure your employees while they work.

Training whenever necessary

Employee training is a surefire way to help your workers stay clear of workplace hazards. Another huge perk to having mobile forms is the ability to place videos and photos that can be used as tutorials. For example, if a new employee is doing the inspection for the first time and they cannot find a specific piece, they can use their mobile form to teach themselves. This makes training a new employee for safety inspections a breeze.

You can also use this same technology to teach your employees about new tools of the trade. Convert your mobile form to a mobile app with Snappii and you can add catalogs of videos available to your employees. They can see which employee is working where, what equipment is being used, the weather – any information can be made accessible.

 

A life is invaluable. Workplace safety incidents are on the decline, and utilizing the modern technology of mobile apps can make that number go down even further, and with less time spent actually doing inspections, than ever before. At Snappii, we want to enable every business to take advantage of mobile forms, which is why we offer a 14-day trial when you sign-up.
