Occupational Health and Safety
Feeling drained and barely able to focus near the end of a long work day? Feel like you can barely concentrate long enough to complete your tasks? These are common feelings shared by so many people on a daily basis. Unfortunately, we feel that we must push through at all costs in order to do a good job. Granted, having a positive work ethic is commendable, but it definitely should not come at the cost of potential injury or death. Fighting fatigue is one of the leading detractors of occupational health and safety.
Your human resources advisor should have a concrete plan in place to uphold positive occupational health and safety measures. If they don’t, don’t be shy about addressing this deficiency. By having preventative measures in place, the company ends up saving thousands on insurance premiums, so don’t hesitate to makes precautionary suggestions.
As a starter, you should make sure you get a good night’s sleep the night before you go to work, even if it means missing your favorite shows on TV! And if you simply can’t make the time to get to bed early, then try taking a nap during one of your breaks or lunch period. A clear, rested mind helps significantly decrease workplace accidents. It would also be a good idea to research your specific industry’s occupational health and safety codes to make sure you are working in a compliant work environment. With just a few extra daily steps of precaution, you should be able to maintain a healthy and comfortable lifestyle.
Public safety measures should be respected at all times.
Make sure you teach your children adequately on the importance of safety information.
