Are You Keeping Safe At Work?


It’s hugely important that you are looking after your own safety at all times. One of the main places you will need to be aware of this and really keep on top of it is of course the workplace. That is somewhere where you spend a good deal of your time, and it’s likely that you are going to run into certain dangers there which you would rather avoid. So you need to make sure that you are keeping safe at work. What can help with this aim? Here are some of the things you might want to be aware of here.

Your Employer’s Responsibilities

It’s important that you know your employer’s responsibilities, because then you can know when it is lacking in this department, and you’ll be able to make a complaint or raise it with the necessary people as appropriate. There are certain things your employer needs to do, such as providing you with a safe workplace, carrying out risk assessments of major tasks, and using a service like More Than Training to ensure you are well trained in health and safety matters. So if any of these things are missing, it’s something you may wish to raise as soon as possible.

Your Responsibilities

You also have certain responsibilities, it’s not only your employer that has to be aware of health and safety matters. You also need to make sure that you are doing everything you can to keep yourself and those around you safe. In this sense, it is the duty of everyone to keep the workplace as safe as possible. You also have the responsibility to wear any PPE that is provided where necessary, and to abide by training and rules. If you do this, then you are also going to be a lot less likely to suffer an injury of any kind.

Paying Attention

A lot of being safe at work really comes down to paying attention to what is going on around you. As long as you are doing that, and you’re generally keeping your wits about you, you are going to find that it’s much easier to keep safe, and that you are going to be a lot more likely to keep other people safe too. So make sure that you are generally paying attention to what is going on, as it really does make a huge difference to everyone in the long run.


Care For Yourself

In general, it’s wise to make sure that you are caring for yourself, so that you can know how your health is faring and whether or not you need to do anything about it. Often people struggle with their health and safety at work because they are not paying attention to their own bodies. It’s essential you do. This will give you all the clues you need as to what’s going on in your own body, so it’s something that you should definitely be aware of. You will find that you can look after yourself so much more effectively as a result.
