Workplace Safety Policy Statement
It is up to the management of a nonprofit to vigilantly protect staff safety. Implementing a safety policy for your organization should be a top priority.
Staff — paid employees and unpaid volunteers — should be encouraged to report any unsafe conditions right away and should be trained how to react in an emergency involving potential violence at the workplace.
Goals of Policy
1. A primary goal of a workplace safety policy is to establish the expectation that it is the responsibility of all personnel to create and maintain a safe work environment.
2. The organization’s safety policy should also address the organization’s obligations under the Occupational Safety and Health Act to maintain a safe workplace.
- The federal government, through the Occupational Safety and Health Act, regulates all workplaces to ensure that certain safety standards are met.OSHA regulations require that all workplaces train their staff annually concerning workplace hazards, such as hazardous chemical substances and blood borne pathogens.Most workers’ compensation insurance policies require the organization to report a work-related injury or illness within a certain number of days, or risk loss of coverage.To ensure proper coverage, it is prudent for the organization’s policy to require employees to report any incidents resulting in work-related illness or injury immediately or within 24-hours.
- If your organization’s activities include taking care of children, the elderly or other vulnerable populations, employees run the risk of being exposed to diseases while taking care of their clients.
3. The organization’s workplace safety policy should require employees to use universal precautions when applying first-aid or providing personal care to clients or each other. Exposure at the workplace to diseases that are transmitted by body-fluids, such as Hepatitis and AIDS, is regulated by OSHA.
