How to Prevent Workplace Accidents

How to Prevent Workplace Accidents

The pressure on businesses to meet targets has arguably never been higher. Facing a future outside of the EU with the recent triggering of Article 50, it’s important that companies look to the future.

PalletTrucksUK, one of the country’s leading suppliers of pallet stackers, lift tables, and similar equipment, has offered business leaders and managers advice on how to prevent workplace accidents, which can have a detrimental effect on the productivity, reputation, and financial aspects of a company.

The first tip the experts at the company suggest implementing is simplicity. In an environment where machinery is used on a daily basis, there’s no need to overcomplicate duties – says the expert.

“Often accidents happen when operations are complex,” said Phil Chesworth, Managing Director at PalletTrucksUK. “Stripping operations back to their most simple form, and of course ensuring everyone knows what they are meant to be doing – and when, will help cut down on the number of accidents significantly.”

Having key processes in place and written down will ensure that everyone knows what they are supposed to do in every circumstance. Not only will this help with productivity by cutting down on the amount of time wasted, but it will also make for a more streamlined process throughout the company.

Regular training is another key point, according to the experts. It’s the law that a number of training exercises need to be carried out, but managers need to look deeper into it and ensure training is given at regular intervals to refresh minds and create a highly skilled workforce.

The last tip from the expert supplier is to invest in reliable equipment that won’t let the business down.

Phil, added, “If a business relies on machinery and equipment – no matter what sector that is, being able to rely on this throughout the year is the most important part of running a successful business. As the backbone of a company, it up to leaders to invest wisely and not cut corners.”
