How to prevent accidents at work?

Safety at work is an important issue on the global agenda. For this reason, every 28th of April the World Day of Safety and Health at Work is celebrated, in homage to the victims of accidents and occupational diseases. Baja California is this year on the list of the 5 states of the republic with more accidents at work.

Surveys say that the emergency area is mostly required by people who have had an accident at work than any other patient who arrives for another variety of problems such as broken teeth or jaw blows, these patients are relocated to a Mexico dentist to stop the bleeding and the mouth reconstruction.

To reduce cases of accidents at work, the most important thing is prevention. That is why there is the Occupational Health and Safety Law by which companies are obliged to promote a culture of prevention of occupational hazards and guarantee the health of workers. This is based on a series of principles, among which the following stand out:

Principle of prevention: the employer guarantees the conditions to protect the life and integrity of workers. Also those who provide services within the workplace even without having a work relationship. Here there is no distinction of sex, gender, age or other factors.
Principle of cooperation: the State, employers and workers forge mechanisms to collaborate and coordinate in matters of security.
Training principle: employees receive information and preventive training.
On the other hand, the same entity indicates that the economic activities with the most notifications of work accidents are those related to the manufacturing industry (24.87%), to real estate, business and rental activities (18.78%), and to the construction sector ( 11.43%). Prevention is carried out through six points: standards, information and training, compliance, capacity building, promotion of social dialogue and social protection.

There are many risk factors in a job that, to avoid or control them, reduce the chances of someone suffering an accident. They are the following:

Indicate and indicate exactly the hazardous areas, such as electrical contact, toxic or flammable material.
Maintain cleanliness and order throughout the place. One of the main causes of accidents occurs, for example, due to the fall of dangerous objects.
Maintain adequate safety conditions, such as the correct lighting. Falls, for example, are also the cause of thousands of accidents, especially in high-risk jobs.
Know where the extinguishers are located, the emergency exits, etc. In addition, it is important to be aligned with the company’s security policies and health plans.
