By Sherry Robertson HR Director / Vice President

* Do your employees know the workplace safety expectations?
Your expectations relative to work-related injuries or accidents should be part of the employee handbook (if there is one), conveyed to new employees as part of orientation, posted on bulletin boards and communicated periodically in safety reviews.

* Is safety discussed at every opportunity?
Make workplace safety efforts an important part of every meeting. Don't just make it a part of your managers' meetings--make it a constant topic at meetings with workers. Make sure you communicate to them why safety is so vital, and how it affects the cost of workers' compensation coverage and thus the bottom line, of the company. You might be amazed at how many of your employees don't really understand how expensive workers' compensation coverage is for the company-or even that it's a cost for the company at all.

* Are trends in workplace injuries examined?
Get all the information you can about what kinds of claims are occurring and in what part of your operations. Only by understanding
what's causing your claims can you begin to address the causes.

* Are your safety policies written?
Reminder: A WRITTEN Safety Policy and a WRITTEN Hazard Communication program are required by OSHA. They must be reviewed annually. Hazard Communication includes SDS (safety data sheet for each chemical on the premises), GHS (the globally harmonized system for container labeling and signage), and employee training.
