Lack of Communication at the Workplace Leads to Safety Issues
Regardless of occupation, communication is of utmost importance to enable a stress-free, pleasant and efficient working environment. Without access to relevant information, the job may seem meaningless and less important at times. Similarly, if safety measures and protocols are not communicated clearly, workers’ well-being is being jeopardized. Certainly it happened to you that intertwining deadlines or inefficient communication of task deadlines led to a lack of sleep, frustration or unhealthy stress that reduces our working abilities. Personal relations are therefore suffering, and those workers performing more demanding physical jobs are in a greater danger of injuries.
Open communication channel and adequate resources as an imperative factor in any organization.
Ensuring open communication channels and adequate resources is a crucial job for a manager who deals with occupational health and safety. His or her job transcends boundaries of familiar disciplines, and acts with one goal only – to make the working environment more friendly, safe and human-centric. Issues and challenges therefore need to be pointed out and resolved as they are noticed. It is of mutual concern and benefit that various standpoints and solutions are observed and considered along the way. As such, communication should not be emphasized merely in situations of crisis or unexpected events – risk should be continuously assessed and mitigated, and exchange of information and various perceptions constantly maintained.
Encourage healthy communication at all levels.
Healthy communication is to be encouraged and practiced at all levels, it becomes part of collective attitude and company culture. It could become a significant factor in the process of attracting a novel workforce, as well as maintaining the existing one. Positive work environment contributes to everyone’s productivity and well-being, and as such should be an employee’s priority.
