How To Get Employees to Follow Safety Rules

 

The health and safety of workers is top priority in any company. Yet employers are often challenged with the task of ensuring that their employees follow the safety rules routinely. This is not always easily done. When it comes to safety, there should be no cutting of corners. The rules must be followed precisely to avoid accidents.

It can be a frustrating thing, when employees do not adhere to the safety rules and expectations that employers have so clearly set for them. Why are employees not listening or following safety rules? What should be done to enforce compliance with safety rules? While we all know that there are “different strokes for different folks,” these tips are found to be reliable resources in promoting safety compliance. Employee’s safety must be taken seriously by all, and action must be taken to ensure that safety rules are strictly enforced.

 

What should be done to enforce compliance with safety rules?

 

First of all, it may seem redundant and simplistic, but it cannot be overstated. Clearly communicate expectations both verbally, and visually. Post reminders of safety rules and guidelines wherever appropriate. When employees need reminding, change out the visual images and fonts that are used, to catch their attention and prevent posted reminders from becoming part of the background. Safety rules should be visible and readily available for reference in any given situation. In moments of high stress, some individuals struggle to think clearly, so it is important for employees to be very familiar with where to look for reference of safety instructions.

 

Implement Procedures for Accountability

 

Employees must be educated about the safety rules and procedures. Online courses are available that will meet the needs of your company. Use online courses to support the education of employees both individually or in a group setting. Policies should clearly state employee responsibilities and outline expectations as well as consequences for failing to comply with safety rules. Employees need to know that they will be held accountable for adherence to safety rules and expectations. Regular and unannounced inspections should be conducted to ensure that the necessary safety precautions are taken.

 

Be Clear in Communicating Company Policy

 

Training is essential in educating workers to be fully informed of company policy. Simply handing employees a pamphlet to read on their own time is not going to drive the point home. Invest time in educating employees on what is expected of them. By investing time, you are saving workers and your company from potentially life-threatening accidents.

 

Set Firm Disciplinary Consequences

 

Employees must be made aware in advance (and in writing) of what the consequences are for failing to comply with safety rules. Employees must be informed of the potential for termination for failure to cooperate with the safety rules and procedures as outlined in the company policy. Use constructive feedback to provide employees with reminders about safety expectations. Interactions to address behavior should be made timely and respectfully.

 

Encourage Safety Rules Compliance with Incentives

 

It is no secret that people are more motivated when given incentives. Consider the interests of your workers and take small steps to show your encouragement and appreciation for their cooperation. Incentives can take the form of eligibility for a raffle by achieving certain safety requirements or additional training. Incentives can also be earned such as a catered lunch, permission to leave early one day, etc. Depending on what motivates your employees, you can get creative with what incentives to use and all the while you are promoting a culture of safety awareness.

 

Document Disciplinary Action

 

Documentation is essential for keeping a record of steps that have been taken to ensure that workers follow safety procedures. By documenting undesirable employee behavior and disciplinary steps for correcting the behavior, you can protect yourself and your company against potential legal disputes. OSHA relies on documentation for proof of compliance, so you will want to be sure that documentation is strictly enforced. This will also help your employees to recognize that you are serious about safety policy adherence.
