It's essential to have a policy to deal with all they key workplace issues, including ergonomics. The BLR publication Essential Safety Policies provides you with sample strict, standard, and progressive versions of each policy, so that you can determine which approach is best for your workplace and your employees.
You can use these policies "as is" or adapt them to your organization's particular needs and style. Each section in the manual provides you with comprehensive lists of points to cover if you want to adapt one of the policies or draft your own.
You can incorporate these policies into your employee handbook, too, to make sure all employees are made aware of your workplace rules and requirements.
And Essential Safety Policies doesn't stop there—it gives you a detailed list of other important things to consider when you implement these policies, such as interrelation with other policies, employee education, legal considerations, and more.
Take these kinds of materials and multiply them by more than two dozen key safety topics, and you'll know why Essential Safety Policies is such a valuable tool for busy safety professionals. These policies provide a ready-to-modify or use-as-is safety handbook for all your workers, with minimal effort on your part.
The policies are backed by a tutorial on policy writing and essential materials such as handbook receipts. A CD version is also available.
If your organization could benefit from supplementing (or perhaps having for the first time) a complete set of ready to use safety policies, we highly recommend a 30-day, no-cost, no-obligation, look at this program. Go here and we'll be pleased to send it to you.
