How to Improve Your Safety Protocol at Work

Most Read

No matter what industry you’re in, there need to be safety regulations put into place. From standard desk jobs to handling mining core trays, you can count on safety protocols to be put into place. They’re needed to protect the company, the employees, and everyone else. Plus, this saves on time, money, stress, and any other hassle that could potentially come with it. So, how can you get your business to begin on a safety protocol? Here is everything you need to know!

Why Do Accidents Happen?

It’s hard to say if accidents are really anybody’s fault. After all, they are called “accidents” for a reason. With that said, there are some common reasons why accidents even happen in the first place. These include:

  • Poor judgment and decision making
  • Inattention and distraction
  • Carelessness and recklessness
  • Unclear instructions
  • Inattention to speed and the environment
  • Overconfidence inability

While there are many reasons why these six reasons may happen, it’s vital that communication is clear and that everyone understands their responsibility in the process.

How to Reduce the Risk of Accidents in Dangerous Situations

Safety is an important part of the work environment. It is vital to make safety a priority when managing operations and brainstorming with team members. Safety should be part of your operations, not just a separate item on your checklist.

Employees are more likely to be involved in accidents if they feel unsafe at work. Ensure that employees have opportunities to voice their concerns and that you prioritize their safety as a company priority.

Think about the COVID-19 pandemic and the amount of news and accidents that happened due to stressed-out employees not feeling safe. If you want your business to run smoothly, then safety must be a priority! When it comes to workplace safety, companies need to have a clear plan that includes brainstorming with their employees on what can be done to reduce the risk of accidents.

Here are three things to keep in mind when protecting your team from risky situations to keep everyone safe.

Keep an error-checking checklist

It is always better to be safe than sorry. Errors happen, and it’s best to have a safety checklist to refer to when something goes wrong. This also helps improve safety protocol as it allows everyone to work thoroughly through it to ensure nothing wrong happens.

Create a safety plan

Make sure everyone knows what to do if they need help or have an emergency. This will help you know what to do in case of any emergencies and help you keep your employees safe in the process!

Have a designated person

This person should be well-versed with all the safety guidelines and procedures of your company so that they can take charge if there is an emergency or any other problem arises during work hours. Usually, a safety office or safety team will play this role.

Ensure that you have a safety checklist

Just as you need an error checklist, it’s ideal to have a safe one too. This includes where the exits are, what emergency equipment is available, how to contact security, etc.

Have an error-checking system in place

This is ideal to combine with the error checklist; this promotes collaboration. Plus, this will help prevent injury and ensure the company’s mission stays intact.

Offer proper training

No matter what industry the company is in, training is needed. Ensure that your company has proper employee training so that everyone knows their responsibilities and how to carry them out properly.

COP28 UAE: SANY Promotes Green Manufacturing Transformation, Takes Concrete Action to Tackle Climate Challenges

CHANGSHA, China, Nov. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- SANY Group, ("SANY"), a globally leading enterprise of the high-end equipment manufacturing industry, is accentuating advancing sustainable development and the green manufacturing transformation of the heavy machinery industry, ahead of the COP28 UAE, that is set to take place from November 30 to December 12 in Dubai. The theme of the 13-day program this year is "Actionism," calling for people to rise to meet the climate change challenges.

The COP28 will center on four major paradigm shifts – namely accelerating the transition from fossil fuels, agreeing on climate finance shifts, emphasizing the role of people and nature in climate action, and ensuring the summit is an inclusive event that women, indigenous people, local communities, youth, countries and more can all be a part of.

SANY is responding actively and positively to the summit's agenda with concrete actions to promote the transformation of green manufacturing, bringing sustainable solutions to the industries of mining, construction, wind power, and more.

Taking green actions to build a sustainable future

SANY is vigorously expanding the use of green energy (renewables such as solar and wind) in production processes to reduce the reliance on traditional energy sources, lower carbon emissions, and support climate change actions. It has adopted multiple initiatives, especially in accelerating the R&D and application of wind energy, hydrogen, and electrification solutions, and achieved significant results.

SANY's subsidiary SANY Renewable Energy has been investing in and constructing wind farms to boost the proportion of wind power in the energy structure, through intelligent upgrades in manufacturing and creating intelligent workshops. By doing this, SANY Renewable Energy has reduced the overall unit energy consumption and carbon emissions by 15 percent compared to pre-upgrade.

In 2022, SANY has added more than 3,000 energy metering connections. SANY built China's first intelligent mixing station park and invested 3.22 million yuan in photovoltaic construction that will produce 900,000 kWh of power annually. The park will cut 887 tons of carbon emission, 242 tons of dust emissions, 26.7 tons of sulfide, and 13.4 tons of nitric oxide to achieve synergetic development of intelligent manufacturing and environmental conservation.

A total of 11 subsidiaries of SANY have installed photovoltaic power generation equipment, with clean energy usage amounting to 16.013 million kWh.

SANY is actively engaged in the R&D of hydrogen fuel cell technology to improve battery efficiency, reduce cost, and boost the production and storage capabilities, while expanding the applications of hydrogen energy.

Innovation-driven climate action tackles industry bottlenecks

Through establishing a green supply chain, SANY adopts renewable materials and environmentally friendly technologies to reduce resource waste and improve the sustainability of the supply chain.

SANY continues to improve the long-term mechanism for pollution prevention and control, strengthen the control of waste emissions including water, gas, and other hazardous substances, and be cautious of business and operation actions that could damage the ecological environment. In 2022, the group's wastewater and gas emissions met the standard rate of 100 percent, with a 100 percent compliance rate for hazardous waste disposal.

The group is also pushing for using environment-friendly materials to minimize pollution, so that the carbon reduction throughout the product life cycle also includes materials. In 2022, its VOCs emission density was 0.0011 tons per million revenue, a 39.71 percent reduction from the base year.

Meanwhile, the continuous upgrade of production techniques and processes, promotion of energy conservation technologies, and advancement of low-carbon technology development are not only playing key roles in improving production efficiency, but also reducing carbon footprint and aims to reach the "dual-carbon" goals.

Calling for the public's participation

SANY has been carrying out training programs and campaigns centered on environmental protection for employees, while further raising community engagement in terms of green, low-carbon, community-friendly, and educational innovation agendas. In 2022, the company employees completed 687.4 hours of volunteer work, and SANY invested 9.75 million yuan in the year to support 15 public welfare projects.

SANY Construction Industry is leading the green technology application in urban infrastructure construction to accelerate the sustainable development of cities and building intelligent cities, green transportation systems, and energy-conserving architectures to reduce energy consumption, improving urban environment quality and people's livelihoods.

In terms of biodiversity and sustainable development, SANY emphasizes the conservation of soil, ocean, crops, and animals to create a better future, and advocates a circular economy to decrease the waste of resources.

In the context of increasingly severe issues of global climate change, SANY, as a leader in the green industry, is committed to promoting sustainable development and actively joining global efforts to address climate change through comprehensive initiatives such as green supply chains, green energy, and carbon emission reduction.
