Why should you participate in your employer's safety program?

When you are hired to work for a company in Texas, one of the first things that you will be doing is receiving training that allows you to learn the functions and responsibilities of your job. Incorporated into these instructions should be important information about how you can stay safe and minimize the risks of doing your job, especially if you are working in an industry that has a higher level of danger. 

While there are several aspects to a well-rounded safety training program, your employer should address a few critical topics according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. These include the following:

  • What your response should be in an emergency situation. This may include what you should do if you are injured, what you should do if you witness someone else get injured and how you should react to a sudden hazard that needs to be addressed before it creates a significant danger. 
  • How the safety program at your company functions and who is responsible for overseeing each aspect. This should provide you with information about who you should report concerns to and how you should address situations that you are uncomfortable with.
  • The overall goals of the program and how its role will help to protect you, as well as the success and future of the company. 
  • The consequences that will be levied if you fail to act responsibly and professionally in your job.
