There are numerous ways that employers should identify and assess risks with a view to preventing and reducing them. There should be a hierarchy of prevention and control measures starting with prevention of the risk, and if this is not possible, technical/engineering controls, safe systems of work and information or training should be used instead.
Unfortunately, some employers encourage workers to use personal protective equipment without ever considering the introduction of prevention and control measures that could eliminate the use of personal protective equipment.
This leads to a number of problems:
Asking new workers about their previous safety education and work experience helps businesses ensure the workers know the basics of workplace safety. Too many accidents occur because businesses assume that everyone knows the basics. Businesses many times will find the worker did not know the basics only after an accident occurs. Ensure every new worker knows their rights and responsibilities.
