Every employee desires and has the right to a workplace free from occupational safety and health hazards. An effective safety program is designed to prevent accidents and illnesses, and is established jointly between employees and management.
Unsafe behaviors, unsafe conditions, and accidents are indicators of a weakness in the risk management process that is in place. A truly effective process provides the framework for safety and concern for self and others to be integrated into the organization like any other function through planning, organization, and leadership. A well-trained, motivated, and team-oriented employee in a safe and healthful environment is more likely to be highly productive and less likely to have an accident.
