The Accident Prevention Plan


It is a common practice for most companies to reevaluate and update company safety programs on an annual basis. With the safety and health of employees a main priority for employers, it is interesting that a number of companies do not have an accident prevention plan, which is a key element in any safety and health program. From the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to state jurisdictions, safety and health programs are an integral part of program monitoring and enforcement. Failure to have a written plan to support those programs is one of the quickest ways to receive a citation.

The written plan gives employers a framework for understanding safety issues within their work environment, assists in preventing occupational injuries and facilitates safety training. These elements work together to create a safe work environment, build employee confidence and minimize operational costs.
