All workers have the right to a safe work environment. Workplace safety protects employees’ health and physical integrity and benefits businesses by increasing productivity, reducing costs, and boosting morale.

Employer Responsibility

Implementing a safety program: This program should identify potential risks, establish control measures, and train employees.

Providing adequate personal protective equipment: Equipment should be appropriate for the work being done and in good condition.

Keeping the workplace clean and organized: A tidy environment reduces the risk of accidents.

Investigating accidents and incidents: It’s essential to determine the causes of accidents to take preventive measures.

Worker Responsibility

Following safety regulations: It’s important to read and understand safety regulations and follow them strictly.

Using personal protective equipment correctly: Protective equipment should be used following the manufacturer’s instructions.

Reporting risks and hazards: If a hazard is observed in the workplace, it’s essential to notify the supervisor or safety officer.

Participating in safety training: Training is essential for identifying and preventing risks.
