Encouraging a safe workplace environment

On Behalf of | Sep 14, 2016 | Workers' Compensation

Massachusetts employers have a duty to make their workplaces reasonably safe and hazard-free for their workers. Prioritizing safety on the job is important. Employers may start by identifying the areas of risk and taking a look at the workplace culture.

Employers should think about all of the different possible physical risks for their employees, including slick floors, debris and poorly-stacked items. For office environments, they might want to think about repetitive stress syndrome. After identifying the risks, the employers should then take steps to correct the identified issues.
