As the best precaution to be taken against health and environmental hazards, the following steps would be taken into consideration:
Recognition and Identification of the Surrounding Hazards and Risks: - This is, in fact, the first and initial step that I have to undertake in order to establish a safe and risk-free environment. It is also the most important step in the program of safety awareness.
Wayne Hebertson, in “The Practical Safety Guide”, once said that the first step in the process of safety implementation is Identification of Hazards and assessment of risks (Cardenas, Para, 2). I will immediately take the time to review the current condition of the organization and that of the employees. This will enhance identification of the places that need changes, and then initiate the implantation process (Gregory, 97).
I will introduce a program where the employees and the employers share a responsibility in understanding and practicing proper hazards and risk management. Normally, it is good for a person to use his or her knowledge to practice proper safety measures. I would recommend the employer to provide the employees with proper and safer working condition (Cardenas, Para, 2).
In addition, I will try as much as possible to explore the current and new ideas in all sections concerning safety matters and check for better approaches to safety. This will be achieved through a safety program that contains effective safety procedures and processes, employees training and checklists (Gregory, 101).
