10 actions that will help prevent accidents at work

As you’re probably already aware of, in this space we always like to offer different recommendations and measures to help improve safety in any industrial spaces – be it in relation to the operation of machinery, to the operators’ care and responsibilities to prevent accidents, and to the many ways in which our systems contribute to creating safer workplaces.

That’s why in today’s post we’d like to share 10 key actions we should always keep in mind to help prevent accidents and achieve much safer workspaces:

  1. Clarity: We must be clear when defining risks and providing information on the safety measures to be implemented in our industry in general, and in each area in particular.

  2. Communication: We must be aware that whatever it is that we don’t communicate to our public, it will not exist for them – whether they are operators, forklift drivers, visitors to the plant, external inspectors or other people who visit our facilities. It is key to invest time and resources in the correct communication of safety rules.

  3. Teamwork: It is essential to be clear that we all depend on each other, and that a distraction, however minimal it may seem, can have grave consequences for another person.

  4. Control: It is equally important to carry out permanent monitoring of the working and working conditions in the industry, in order to be able to detect any fault or unsafe condition in the workspace in time.

  5. Documentation: Any work failure or accident must be properly documented, locating the root of the problem, identifying the work area and the elements involved in the incident. This allows acting on the evidence and avoiding the repetition of similar accidents.

  6. Training: Investing in training is the only way to be up to date on the knowledge of the new realities of the industries, and, therefore, of the new dangers and new responsibilities that people have when taking care of themselves and their peers.

  7. Keeping tools up-to-date: new technologies constantly provide us with innovative possibilities to create much safer and more efficient work spaces, and help us reduce the number of occupational accidents. At Claitec we work hard to provide solutions that are easily integrated into industrial operations, and that provide our clients with different ways to improve task performance in order to minimise risks.

  8. Inspection and measurement: Performing inspections and measurements of environmental or work factors is vital. It’s important to control annoying noise, spaces with low visibility and exposure to extreme temperatures, among other factors. Creating health and safety commissions is also a great help for these goals.

  9. Forecast: Preparing emergency and contingency plans and programs in case of accidents within the industry is also very important. It allows us to protocolise the responses and gain time in the face of serious or unforeseen events which end up having an impact on the health and integrity of the people who make up our work teams.

  10. Professionalism: The routine nature of our tasks cannot have us forget that it is imperative to work with professionalism and care regardless of our positions. Forgetting this golden rule for a single second can have terrible consequences, especially when we work in front of heavy trucks, or in industrial spaces with large machinery.
