The information is an important element in our activity for safety, health and well-being at work, which includes those information provided by management to workers and the information which is passed between colleagues. New employees must be given full information by the supervisor and by co-workers. Information must also be provided when introducing new machines, chemicals, production methods, etc. so that the work maybe carried out as safely as possible.
It should not solely consist of instructions or directives concerning work issued by the managers or supervisors. If information on safety, health and working condition questions in an enterprise is effective then it should stimulate all the workers and supervisors to participate in occupational health and safety activities. Proper information contributes to a general feeling of job satisfaction and good working morale in the enterprise.
Information can be provided in different ways. Suggestion boxes can be provided by allowing the employees to put forward their own proposals for safety, health and working condition improvements, perhaps with prizes being awarded for those proposals which are adopted. Another way is to provide information on risks, accidents, new products or new work methods which the enterprise is going to use.
