Hear No Danger. See No Danger. Speak No Danger.
The objective of almost any organisation is to increase growth, reduce costs or improve efficiency. The overwhelming amount of increasing health, safety and environmental legislation becomes burdensome. It takes time to absorb what the changes mean to a business and to develop and implement new processes and plans that will ensure they conform to a particular piece of legislation. Furthermore, the impact that new health and safety legislation has on how they run their day-to-day activities, whilst not increasing the cost to the business and not affecting productivity.
Health and Safety in the workplace is not just about being compliant. It is easy to appear to have ticked the relevant boxes. Having a health and safety culture that promotes good safe working practices is essential to safeguard against injury, sickness, or potential loss of productivity.
