Developing a Written Safety Plan: A Guide

WRITTEN BY

GOALS OF THIS GUIDE

LWCC is committed to supporting you in developing your safety program and culture to its fullest potential. A successful safety and risk management program requires detailed planning, careful implementation, and employers and employees who are committed to a strong safety culture. 


The goal of a safety plan is to maintain a safe working environment through the development and implementation of processes to reduce injuries. The following components of a written safety plan can strengthen your proactive safety efforts in minimizing workplace accidents: 


  1. Company/Management Policy Statement: establish safety as a value of your organization.
  2. Responsibility for Safety: establish the expectation of performance.
  3. Inspections: periodic review of conditions with documentation with any corrective action taken.
  4. Accident Investigations: documentation of all incidents to reduce a recurrence
  5. Safety Meetings: periodic discussions on safety with documentation.
  6. Safety Rules: establishment of basic guides of working safely with documentation of promulgation.
  7. Training: implement orientation and training of new employee and existing employees
  8. Record Keeping: posting, completion and filing of forms and documents.
  9. First Aid: provide and maintain life safety equipment in addition to training.
  10. Emergency Preparedness

LWCC Safety Services offers a sample written safety plan to assist you in the development and establishment of a written program.
