Disaster planning helps employers keep workplaces safe

Oklahoma is famous for severe storms, and employers have an obligation during natural disasters to maintain safe work environments. Ideally, an organization prepares a crisis management plan during good times so that everyone will understand safety protocols during bad weather or other dangerous events. Good planning could prevent endangering employees and subsequent litigation.

Understanding the effects of working in hot weather

Oklahoma workers may face dangers related to working in hot weather even as the calendar transitions to fall. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 37 work-related deaths around the country in 2015 related to heat exposure on the job. Of those deaths, 33 occurred between June and September. In addition, there were 2,830 nonfatal injuries and illnesses related to heat exposure.

Proactive safety planning can help cut workplace injuries

Preventing serious injuries and fatalities in the workplace should be an important priority for people concerned about safety on the job in Oklahoma. There are different types of potential injuries that can take place during the work day, and safety advocates are urging a prevention-focused approach to protect workers from dangerous accidents.
