Safety on the Job
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Employees do not want to get hurt on the job. Employers do not want their workers to miss work. Practicing safety on the job is very important to everyone.
 
2     Employers can give employees safety training in different ways. Some will show a video. Some will go over important safety practices written in the handbook. Others may give on-the-job training.
 
3     Different employers may do safety training at different times. Sometimes training is done with a large group at a meeting. If you are new on the job, your employer might train you by yourself when you start work. Other safety training might be done throughout the year in small groups.
 
4     No matter when or how it is done, safety training should teach employees certain skills. When you finish this training, you should know how to:

       Prevent injuries
Handle accidents
Use machines safely
Use chemicals and other materials safely

 
5     Machines can be very dangerous if they are not used properly. If you work on or around machines, you should be given complete training on how to use them safely.
