Your Total Solution For Health and Safety Compliance In The Banking and Insurance Industry
Banking and Insurance Industry
Health and Safety in Banks can be fairly easy to manage as it is mostly office-based, However, the health and safety of employers and employees still needs to be a top priority no matter what kind of environment the workplace is. Considerations in closed environments such as a bank, include evacuation procedures, first aid training, regular breaks away from the computer, and clear signage.
Banking employees are at a particular risk of eye strain and headaches from long periods of concentration on detailed tasks, repetitive counting of money, and the accuracy the job demands. It is essential that regular breaks are provided and that staff rotate on a regular basis at teller points.
Although security has become exceptionally difficult to get through, there is always a high risk of theft and the associated violence that comes with a potential heist. Due to large amounts of cash in a bank, this is always a threat. Proper training needs to be provided to all staff for such incidents, as well as debriefing and counselling after the event should it occur.
