Always a minefield and yes, there are big issues in keeping a workplace safe for staff and visitors, but the details should not be overlooked. Do you make sure that safety jackets are work by all those acceessing relevant areas? Is the first aid cabinet fully stocked and readily accessible? Who is in the building? – a lot of organisations fail to keep tabs on visitors. What about an emergency evacuation plan? These are some of the items that are part and parcel of the bigger issue picture.
Being safe is about mitigating risk exposure wherever a risk can arise in the work place.
