Tips for Preventing Maryland Workplace Accidents

By Alpert Schreyer on August 11, 2011

Workplace accidents cost employers billions of dollars each year and leave employees with severe injuries that cause discomfort, pain, loss of mobility and other complications. Employees and managers should work together to prevent these accidents.

Create a workplace safety committee to address issues related to employee safety and workplace hazards. The safety committee should have at least one employee representative to ensure employee interests are represented during meetings.

Conduct regular safety inspections to identify hazards before they cause an accident. Look for loose flooring, slippery surfaces, broken equipment and other hazards. Repair any identified hazards immediately.

Train employees in the proper use of cleaning fluids and other chemicals. Improper use of these chemicals can cause slip and fall accidents, chemical burns, fires and other workplace incidents.

Maintain a fully stocked first aid kit for employees. The kit should include adhesive bandages, gauze, disinfecting wipes, cloth tape, packets of antibiotic ointment, aspirin, non-latex gloves, scissors, tweezers, a thermometer, a blanket and a cold compress. If employees regularly operate company vehicles, ensure that each vehicle has a first aid kit.

Engage employees in accident prevention and safety initiatives. Implement a rewards program related to workplace safety. This type of program will encourage employees to take proper safety precautions instead of rushing to get the job done.

Even when employees follow all of these safety precautions, accidents still happen. In some cases, third party (contractors, sub-contractors, managers, product manufacturers, etc.) negligence leads to accidents and causes workers years of pain and suffering. Injured workers and their families also face significant medical bills and the harsh reality of lost wages. An experienced Maryland workplace accident attorney at Alpert Schreyer, LLC may be able to help injured workers and their families seek the compensation they deserve from negligent third parties. If you or a loved one have been injured in a workplace accident, call Alpert Schreyer, LLC at 301-932-9997. All information will be kept confidential.
