HR Tips - Health & Safety

  • Ensure staff are aware of the office emergency evacuation procedures. Provide individual emergency supply kits which staff can store under their desk/work area.
  • Encourage people to set up an emergency kit for their home. Here is a good link to more information: http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/emergency-preparedness-response-recovery/preparedbc/build-an-emergency-kit
  • Make it a priority that your team takes their vacation time to re-charge.
  • Evacuation drills should be done annually. Access ShakeoutBC for some extra resources and training materials (www.shakeoutbc.ca/)
  • Your commitment to health & safety initiatives should be promoted within the organization. This includes meeting minutes, audit results and changes made.
  • Ergonomic equipment should be made available for staff (standing desks, split keyboards, etc). This will support temployees individual needs and create a more productive workplace.
  • As an employer, you have a duty to accommodate a disability. Ensure that you have a good understanding of the situation and work to provide meaningful employment.
