As much as technology advances, people will always be the main and most important resource of a company. This is more than enough reason for the health, safety and well-being of employees to be placed at the top of priorities.
Training and making your team aware of the importance of preventing diseases and accidents must go beyond simply complying with the requirements of labor legislation. In this article we separate some tips to help your company on this journey. Good reading!
Lectures, Seminars and Webinars
Providing an expert in the field to address issues about occupational health, providing opportunities for your employees to learn and clear up their doubts with a professional is a good way to reinforce good health and safety practices at work.
Promote campaigns in the form of virtual pamphlets, images, short texts, videos, booklets or checklists with good practices to promote well-being and send them to the employees' corporate email. Use your imagination and ask them to help you participate in these campaigns. The internal radio or TV, to which employees have recurring access during the day or at rest, can help them to remember and internalize good practices.
The bulletin board is usually effective especially for physical operations, where employees go through it at least once a day, thus reinforcing the good practices that were presented in a lecture, for example.
Healthy Work Environment
The work environments in a company are one of the main points in the well-being of its employees. It is essential to promote clean and airy environments, comfortable and in good working conditions, in addition to having an environment for breaks and rests.
Workplace gymnastics is a great ally to prevent occupational diseases.
Including this practice in the work routine of your employees will help prevent various diseases such as RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) and WMSD (Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders).
It is important that the company is attentive to the mental health of its employees. Illnesses such as depression and anxiety are increasingly common in corporate environments. Promote a work environment where the employee feels free and comfortable to speak up when they feel unwell.
Training is a very effective way to raise awareness and mobilize your employees about the requirements and best practices for preventing diseases and accidents at work. Courses on Occupational Health and Safety can even be carried out at a distance, as long as they comply with the legislation, meeting the requirements of NR1 and NT N° 54/2018.
