CHALLENGES OF AN OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY TECHNICIAN

Do you know how many people around the world suffer accidents at work every 15 seconds? We tried to find out and discovered the answer.

The Occupational Safety Technician is a qualified professional whose main objective is to supervise facilities and prevent physical and psychological harm to each employee. It is crucial that everyone in the company knows their fundamental role. Here are the responsibilities assigned to this professional:

  • Analyzing work methods and identifying safety factors that are likely to cause accidents at work;
  • Assessing working conditions and providing technical advice, based on the safe planning of work activities so that employees can perform their duties correctly;
  • Transmitting safer procedures and evaluating the results achieved;
  • Raising awareness of safe habits and behavior by respecting safety barriers and floor markings;
  • Carry out programs to prevent accidents at work, possible illnesses related to work activities and pass on this knowledge to each employee;
  • Promoting debates, lectures and training on occupational safety and hygiene standards;
  • Promoting environmentally-friendly work activities, starting with the treatment of industrial waste.
  • This is how the Safety Technician plays a fundamental role for companies, helping to protect employees during their work. Without their existence, the number of compensations and accidents at work would be higher and employees would not be so focused.

Finally, the answer is 153 people. According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), every 15 seconds 153 people suffer workplace accidents.
