Workplace safety plays a big part in both staff performance and staff retention. Having a safe and secure premises, particularly for workers who are on site outside of daylight hours, is extremely important. And it’s crucial to create a warm and hospitable environment where employees are happy to work, and alongside team members they trust. Not only does improving the safety and security of your site boost the growth and development of people and your business, but it can prevent crime, injury, theft, and any unwanted lawsuits which can be a complicated HR matter to deal with.

Here are 5 ways you can ensure optimum workplace safety for yourself and your staff:  

  1. Install Security Cameras

One of the easiest ways of protecting both your business and your employees is to install security cameras on your premises. There are many benefits of security cameras for all industries and sectors. For retail sites, it can capture incidents of theft and can protect your sales staff against dangerous criminals. For warehouses or industrial sites, camera security can safeguard your inventory, whilst also giving workers peace of mind at night. It’s also worth installing cameras within staff quarters to protect people from crimes and offenses that could be committed by other team members - it’s important to remember that the threat doesn’t always come from outside.

  1. Conduct a Survey of Your Business

If you would like to create a safety strategy, it is important to conduct a survey and risk assessment of your business. Appoint an officer to do this, and assess each area of your workplace with a view of removing any opportunities for criminal activity, either within or from outside of your organisation. Here is a step by step guide to conducting a survey for your shop, commercial site, office or warehouse.

  1. Consider External Security Measures

There are a number of measures you can take to protect your site, particularly if you have a large area to manage and you don’t have any security staff. Installing fences or barbed wire can prevent problems with thieves and gangs, whilst less permanent options such as bollards can act as a mild deterrent for petty crime or vandalism.

  1. Use a Sign In / Sign Out System

Knowing exactly who is in your building at any one time is a great way of monitoring criminal activity. Investing in high tech check-in software is something you should consider if you have a large team of staff to manage. Not only does it help with HR tasks (such as timesheets, rotas and wages), but it allows you to see who is coming in and out throughout the day. You could even set up a sign in system for suppliers, couriers and anyone else who accesses your building regularly.

  1. Train Your Staff on Safety

The best way of getting everyone on board with workplace safety is to provide adequate training. Appoint safety officers who are responsible for keeping an eye on the premises and the people, and conduct training sessions to teach everyone about the importance of staying safe at work. Not only does this spread important knowledge throughout your organisation, but it also encourages everyone to respect and look after one another.
