Workers Compensation – Start the New Year Right With Safety and Loss Control Program Planning

Workers Compensation – Start the New Year Right With Safety and Loss Control Program Planning

Taking risks with employee safety and health leads to injuries and losses exerting a negative impact on your organization’s bottom line. An effective safety and loss control program identifies and controls or eliminates hazards, so injuries and losses are prevented. The result is a more productive and profitable organization.

To develop a safety and loss control program, management has to initiate action in the following areas:

  1. Identify the reasons why the program is needed and what success looks like. These objectives will help to determine the depth and scope of the program’s development.
  2. Write and communicate a policy statement to all employees. This statement should clearly outline program objectives, while indicating top management’s intentions and determination for achieving an effective program designed to provide a safe working environment.
  3. Assign responsibilities. An effective loss control program involves all staff functions, all levels of management and the labor force. Therefore, all employees will have responsibilities and involvement in the program.
  4. Establish provisions to ensure effective participation in the program by all levels of the organization. Employees should have the necessary time and resources to participate and have timely access to information about the program.
