Injury prevention workshops are universal interventions that can substantially reduce the number and severity of workplace injuries and alleviate the associated financial burdens on U.S. workplaces. Many states have requirements or voluntary guidelines for workplace injury prevention programs. Also, numerous employers in the United States already manage safety using Injury Prevention Workshops and we believe that all employers can and should do the same. Most successful injury prevention programs are based on a common set of key elements. These include:
- Management Leadership
- Worker Participation
- Hazard Identification
- Hazard Prevention and Control
- Education and Training
- Program Evaluation and Improvement
