2023-04-28

Tecnon provides five tips to promote good work practices and techniques to reduce the possibility of accidents at work.

Since 2003, the International Labour Organization (ILO) established April 28 as the World Day for Safety and Health at Work. This decission was made in memory of a work accident in the USA in 1987 where 28 workers died, and it is in order to promote and raise awareness about the magnitude of this issue.

At Tecnon we promote good work practices and techniques to reduce the risk of accidents at work that threaten the health of our workers. So we provides five tips to make safety at work a priority:

  1. Know your rights and responsabilities: For both employers and employees, it is convenient to know the necessary security procedures in the workplace, to make a safer enviromment.
  2. Identify and communicate possible risk at workplace: A potential danger could be a tool used daily or a wet floor not properly marked. It is important to identify these risks and communicate them, because this will help to fix it.
  3. Provide employment guidance and job training: A large percentage of accidents at work are in the first six month of work, so a good communication and training is essential so that the employees have the right knowledge to perform their duties.
  4. Have the appropriate protective equipment: It is the responsability of the company to provide the appropriate equipment and train the worker for its correct use.
  5. Supervise the work of the collaborators: One of the most effective ways to guarantee the safety of workers is supervising their work. Involving a work team with more experience in this tasks can facilitate the communication and promotion of good practices.
