Workplace Safety Policy
Every enterprise should have a written workplace safety policy. In addition, every enterprise should ensure every employee, third-party contractor and vendor is aware of and in compliance with that policy.
This policy from TechRepublic Premium represents consensus best practices based on several HR standard-setting organizations, including the Society for Human Resource Management and the Nonprofit Risk Management Center.
From the policy:
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PROFESSIONALS
For information technology professionals, the greatest risk of injury in the workplace revolves around the usual occupational hazards of slipping, falling and fire. IT pros should maintain a clean and orderly workspace and know the evacuation plan in case of fire. Furthermore, they should use common sense when it comes to reaching high or otherwise hard-to-reach places and use a ladder where appropriate, not a makeshift apparatus.
