More from The Safety Blog on How Workplace Safety Applies to Every Business. Safety best practices, no matter what your business is, are:

  • Maintain safety plans and protocols - who is responsible for what, when, and how
  • Implement those plans
  • Have emergency plans - who will do what, when, how, and where they will find what they need
  • Drill on those plans! The more rare the events you’re preparing for and the worse they will be if/when they happen, the more you should prepare for them, so people know what to do in an emergency.
  • Keep and maintain Material Safety Data Sheets on all hazardous materials
  • Maintain adequate worker’s compensation insurance
