When we evaluate a job’s danger index, we must consider all the risks that may exist, with the aim of finding the most efficient solution.
In general, there are risks that can be seen (such as electrical installations) and those that are less visible (such as lack of safety education).
In a more detailed way, we can categorize the risks as follows:
Surprisingly, most workplace injuries are caused by risky behavior. Risk behaviors are those behaviors carried out by the worker that, either due to lack of knowledge or concentration, put his/her safety at risk.
Some examples of risk behaviors are:
Behavioral risk management is the process of analyzing and identifying behavioral problems in the workplace and ensuring that the potential for harm is minimized.
Without a doubt, we are creatures of habit that operate most of the time on autopilot. It is difficult to always be on alert as it can lead to mental exhaustion.
However, it is very important that companies invest not only in visible risks but also in those that require further study, in order to guarantee the safety of all workers.
The incorporation of the IoT in occupational safety has meant a great advance in risk prevention measures. This technology not only helps the prevention team to measure environmental risks, but also helps to monitor the risky behavior of employees, guaranteeing their privacy.
