    When it comes to workplace safety there are many benefits that are often overlooked. Safety procedures are frequently disregarded in a variety of workplaces due to insufficient time, inadequate resources or an opportunity to cut corners in an attempt to save money.

    Here are a few safety guidelines to help keep your workers safe:

    Ensure Safety Equipment is Used at all Times
    Eliminate Any Potential Safety Hazards
    Clearly Label Designated Hazardous Zones
    Always Use Safe Lifting Techniques
    Provide Training and Refresher Courses
    Promote Awareness in your Workplace

    Your post title said: "What are the rules and regulations that govern the safety of workers?)"

    I expected to see link to the applicable rules and regulations not just a list of random safety tips

    Nope. That's just an article from a business formation company. It has no authority.

    For example. In the UK we have this: http://www.hse.gov.uk/

    If you are promoting safe systems of work then surely you should know which local regulations are applicable.

    I think you are here only to post negative comments on other's post. You should try something else rather than talking nonsense.

    How is this nonsense? You posted a link to a non-authorative website that is only applicable in WI USA.

    Workplace safety is important I agree, but the applicable regulations depend in the county, the type od workplace and the activities being carried out.

    For example, the rules for someone working in a underground water system will be totally different to an office worker.
