Getting employees involved in loss prevention

Your company’s management team has a responsibility when it comes to providing a safe workplace and implementing loss prevention program guidelines. However, if you really want your loss prevention program to be a success, employees also need to play an active role.

Management’s commitment alone will not automatically result in an effective loss prevention effort—employee participation is crucial. Having employees share the responsibility for loss prevention not only benefits the organization, but also benefits the individual employee and co-workers by ensuring safety for the property and employees.

Basic employee responsibilities for loss prevention include:

  • Think safety before starting any work
  • Follow all Loss Prevention procedures, regulations, and rules
  • Follow inspection guidelines for all equipment, machines, and tools
  • Utilize proper personal protective equipment where required
  • Operate all equipment with safety guards in place while in operation
  • Operate only the equipment and machines trained and authorized to operate
  • Report all unsafe acts, conditions and accidents immediately to management
  • Participate actively in Loss Prevention training
  • Suggest methods for control of workplace hazards

Together, employees and management can have a positive effect on reducing, controlling or eliminating workplace hazards, accidents, and injuries.
