June is National Safety Month, so it’s a great time to inventory the safety supplies you currently have, ensure you are compliant with safety codes and order everything you need to have on hand in case of emergency. No matter the size of your company or the type of work you do, ensuring your employees are safe should be your first priority. Here are a few items every office should have:
First Aid Kit
First aid kits are regarded as essential features in any office as they are an important first line of defense that can provide immediate help in most medical emergencies. A typical kit may consist of items like bandage, gauze, ointment, or antiseptic. Depending on your line of work, you can always customize what is in your kit.
A biohazard kit is equipped with materials required to dispose of waste that is considered to be dangerous or contagious. As there are different kinds of biohazardous waste, there are different types of biohazard kits.
Clear out small, manageable fires with fire extinguishers. There should be an extinguisher on every office floor and it should be visible and easily accessible. Make sure your employees know where the fire extinguisher is and that they understand how to use a fire extinguisher in the event of an emergency.
In addition to stocking your safety supplies, make your office a safe environment by keeping it clean and clear, ensuring your staff has proper training on the equipment they are using and providing workers with ergonomic work stations. At the end of the day, the better prepared you are, the safer your business will be.
