Good health and safety is about following clear health and safety procedures every time. Your employees have to get into the habit of doing this automatically. If they don't, they could forget to do something and cause an accident.

So you need to ensure you train your employee's in these three safety habits

Your employees must:

1. Put on all proper work wear. Your employees wouldn't leave the house without shoes on. So why should they start work without their PPE on.

2. Wash your hands before and after work. Basic hygiene isn't just for the bathroom. If your employees work with chemicals and other materials, they could absorb them through their skin and make them sick.

3. Clean up after themselves. They have to put things away and keep the work area tidy just like their room when they were younger.
