A safety plan for your company and facility has to include all demographics contained therein. That's a seemingly simple statement that can quickly become more complex in reality. Chances are that from supervisors to shift workers, employees of all backgrounds and ages work to help the company succeed. Do your safety efforts keep all of them in mind?
It should. Especially when it comes to varying ages, an often inherent bias can actually make working within the facility more hazardous for aging employees. Keep the shifting demographics of your employees in mind as you build strategies to protect your workers and prevent implicit age-based discrimination. This is what you need to know.
