3 Ways To Fix Your Big Risks

Getting started with Health and Safety and managing the risks in your workplace can be quite overwhelming, I mean, where do you start?

That's why this week we are boiling risks down to 3 easy steps, because it doesn't have to be complicated.

Read the revisited Workshop Wednesday: 3 Easy Ways to Fix Your Big Risks Revisit

So where do we start with fixing these risks? By doing everything all at once so that everything becomes immediately safe, right? No, not at all.

We know that we are all busy in the work that we do, our jobs are not Health and Safety. However we do need to keep safe, thats why we think you should start with your top 5 big risks and follow these 3 steps.

  1. Find out what those top five risks are. Walk around your work place, take photos, talk to your employees and find out what the risky things are. Then decide on the top 5. Easy.
  2. Talk with your team (The people that have to deal with these risks) about ways to make these risks safer. They should be really practical solutions. Easy.
  3. The last step is to then do the things you talked about. So many people talk about things but never do them. So to actually be safe you need to follow through with your solutions, pretty easy really.

So there are 3 really easy steps to fix your top 5 risks. But if you are going "I just don't have time to do 5 all at once" then just do 1. Then once you have done that, move onto the next, and then the next. You don't have to sort everything overnight.

Recording these risks and the solutions is really important. This way the people in your workplace can remind themselves and read up on the solutions and stay safe.
The place we think you should do this is in the PeopleSafe app. You can record the risk down, keep track of it, and have one place where employees can go to find out how to stay safe in your workplace.

So there are 3 ways to fix you big risks. See you next week!
