Print Safety Training All businesses should plan, create and maintain safe working conditions. Safe conditions and safety training combined produce a safe operation. The backbone of loss prevention is the reduction of unsafe acts and unsafe conditions on a daily basis. Safe work habits are the result of education, training, continuous observation and feedback. Communication is vital. Teach new workers the safe way to perform their duties, and do remedial training with experienced workers when necessary. It’s not enough to simply tell workers what to do. There must be follow-up and feedback to make sure workers understand and follow through on safe work practices. Constant reinforcement is an effective way to change unsafe employee behavior and emphasize safe work practices. The person most effective in this area is your first line supervisor.
