HOW & WHY TO USE: SAFESUPERVISOR’S FATALITY FILES
Work-related deaths are still far too common, even with all the progress that’s been made in creating safer workplaces and the adoption of OHS laws designed to protect workers and hold employers accountable for workplace safety.
What makes many of these deaths even more tragic is the fact they could have easily been prevented.
Keep your workers from becoming a fatality file; use these stories of work-related deaths and the lessons learned as part of your training program.
Fatality files are grim, but impactful reminders of how quickly things can go wrong, how dangerous work can be, and how easily a life could have been saved.
When paired with a safety talk and quiz, a fatality file can be an extremely effective tool in frontline safety training. For more resources to improve the resonance and retention of your safety message with frontline staff.
