Dangerous Practices And Procedures At Work

Dangerous practices and procedures at work can lead to injuries and accidents. For this reason, it is important for every employer to carry out risk assessments in the workplace and ensure that the workplace is safe for the workers. If there are potential risks of hazards, employers must adopt safety measures to minimise those risks.

But, there are a number of workplaces in the UK where employers allow unsafe practices and dangerous procedures to be carried out. Examples of dangerous practices and procedures at work that can lead to injuries and accidents include:

  • making use of dangerous machinery and equipment without any training or very little training
  • failure of the employer to provide adequate personal protective equipment
  • failure of the employer to provide adequate training and the correct equipment to workers who are required to perform heavy lifting and manual handling tasks
  • failure of the employer to ensure there is adequate lighting in areas where there are potential tripping hazards
  • workers making use of ladders which does not have stabilisers
  • standing on a chair or table top to reach high places
  • workers being exposed to hazardous substances and chemicals at the workplace
  • failure of the employer to ensure that pedestrian and vehicle only areas are separated
