Putting Together a Safe Workplace

March 2, 2020

Are you looking to put together a safe workplace but are unsure where to start? At the Department of Workforce Development's Worker's Compensation Division (DWD/WC), we're ready to help point you in the right direction!

We just redesigned and updated the DWD/WC safe workplace guide, Putting Together a Safe Workplace, and you can download or print it from our WC Safety page under Resources. We've distilled the key concepts into videos, starting with an overview you can watch today. Stay tuned as we roll out other videos with key concepts to help get you on the road toward resources to help you launch or enhance safety at your workplace.

The overview safe workplace guide highlights key concepts, core safety program elements and provides a comprehensive list of safety resources and organizations, such as the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Wisconsin Safety Council, the American Society of Safety Professionals, and much more.

Thank you for your interest in Putting Together a Safe Workplace!

Have a Safe Day!
