Providing extensive orientation to the new workers reduces the chances of workplace injuries. Orientation sessions are designed to make the new worker familiar with the workplace and environment. It tells them where things are located at the workplace, who works there and which jobs each of them perform the possible workplace hazards and how to avoid them, who to report any signs of hazards to, which steps to take in case of an injury and where to get the first aid equipment.
Training should be given in order to teach the workers how to complete the work correctly and safely. The workers should be well equipped with the knowledge of safety procedures.
The supervisors should keep a vigilant eye on the tasks performed by all the workers and give instant feedback on whether they are meeting the safety guidelines or not and should provide for on the spot corrective measures. Vigilant supervision should continue at least till the time new workers become highly familiar with are the safety standards and guidelines.
