A functional health and safety program requires team work.

Putting a health and safety program in place and making sure to educate and oversee all workers has many benefits, especially for manufacturing companies and plants.

It’s often the fear of major disasters or leaks propelling businesses to action, but it can also improve employee morale and productivity.

A good health and safety program, especially for chemical manufacturers, should include (among other things):

  • A risk assessment process
  • Communication with workers and managers about risks and safety steps
  • Highly visible safety regulations (hearing protection, hand-washing, etc)
  • Personal protective equipment when needed
  • Regular maintenance of building envelope, equipment
  • Annual medical assessments when warranted
  • Responsible waste management
  • Etc.
