Tips to Avoid Work Accidents
Understand and Implement SOP
Every job has a Standard Operating Procedure or SOP in carrying out its duties. Especially jobs that have a big risk. This is so that the work can run smoothly and does not endanger the workers or the people around them.
When we work, we should study our work SOPs until we really understand and are able to carry them out properly. Do not do the work if you do not understand the SOP. It can harm ourselves and others
Always Use Safety Equipment
When working in a hazard-prone place such as a construction site, every worker is required to use Personal Protective Equipment or PPE. PPE must always be worn when working so that work accidents do not occur that can endanger safety.
Using full PPE may make us troublesome or uncomfortable, but don’t let go of PPE while working. It can harm us and others. It’s better to be a little bothered than something bad happens.
Don’t Underestimate Danger
We may have been in our jobs for a long time and have never had an accident at work. However, we must not be negligent and underestimate the dangers that lurk by ignoring SOPs and PPE.
The danger or risk of work accidents can occur at any time without us knowing. Therefore, we must always be careful while working. Never underestimate the danger.
Ask if there is something you don’t understand
Work accidents can occur due to factors beyond human capabilities and due to human error itself. Errors can occur, one of which is because the worker does not understand the task he is doing.
Therefore, if there is something we don’t understand about our work, don’t hesitate to ask someone who understands better. It is better to ask questions than to make mistakes that can harm ourselves and others.
Those are 4 tips that we can do to avoid work accidents. Stay healthy and safe while working.
