Worksite dangers are few and far between when all of your employees are properly educated in site and safety compliance at your Los Angeles site. While that statement sounds like a no-brainer, you would be surprised how often work sites lack the tools that they need—whether it be in employee education or an up to date assessment of all of the risks on a work site. Onsite accidents happen, but there are a lot of ways that site managers and property owners can mitigate risk to avoid an accident at all costs. Here is what you need to know about site and safety compliance in Los Angeles:

Adhere to any OSHA guidelines

Most workers are educated in what it means to be compliant according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (more colloquially known as OSHA), but you should never assume. Mitigate risk at your Los Angeles work site by speaking with all of your workers to get a good understanding of their knowledge of OSHA guidelines for the specific work site they’ll be working on. Communication is one of the biggest ways to mitigate risk of onsite accidents, so communicating with your workers clearly and early on will be vital in ensuring that your workers are safe on the job.

Proper employee training

When you speak with your workers about OSHA standards relating to your work site, you’ll be able to get a sense of any type of training that they may need in order to get up to speed on all of the occupational standards at a site. On the job training is an investment that employers need to take seriously, as it could mean the difference between having to pay a little bit now, or pay a lot later—both financially and physically if a worker were to get hurt on the job due to poor training. Capstone offers employee training for Los Angeles worksites, and can help your employees learn the skills that they need to be as safe as possible while on the job.

Access to proper equipment

Faulty, old, or failing equipment is a common cause of workplace related accidents in Los Angeles sites. In order to be compliant, it’s paramount that workers are given the tools that they need to get the job done quickly, safely and efficiently. It is a good idea to get your workplace assessed or communicate with your workers to identify any equipment that may need to be replaced, or to identify any equipment that your workers might need in order to get the job done as safely as possible.

Assessments from professionals

As we mentioned before, Capstone Fire can help train employees on compliance guidelines while on the job. We can also assess your work site to identify any risks—such as any areas of concern that might be of higher risk, and discuss the best possible option for your workers in how to approach each problem. Identifying possible risks is a major part of on the job compliance, and could mean a great difference if workers are properly trained in how to avoid problems in the first place while on the job.
