HOW TO IMPLEMENT SAFETY MANAGEMENT?

If you are safety cautious and understand the importance of industrial safety, it is always the right time to think about ways of implementing safety management. Let our ISO consultants introduce you to the steps / issues:

a. Organization for Safety

The company management should decide wisely about supervisors’ and managers’ responsibility and authority for safety. In some cases, a safety committee consisting of executives, supervisors, and shop-floor workers may be setup to tackle the safety issues.

b. Safety programs

Safety programs should aim at discovering the root causes of accidents and reducing accidents (and associated losses) by preventive measures.

c. Safety Instructions and Training

We believe, that it is very essential to train our clients to educate employees to think, act, and work safely. In addition, safety training provided by JJK Consulting imparts knowledge transfer about safe (and unsafe) mechanical conditions, personal practices, and remedial measures.

d. Developing Safety Consciousness

In general, no worker would accept the use of a safety measure (e.g., wearing a helmet or face mask) unless he / she is convinced of its necessity. Professional safety training will make them conscious of the need for safety.
