Everyone agrees that safety in the workplace is important, but how important is it?
Accidents cause financial and productivity loss in business, and there are regulatory requirements. Moreover, accidents affect both the colleagues and the personal lives of the injured persons and their families, at times with personal tragedies as a result.
When we go to work we expect to return home uninjured. Unfortunately, without proper attention to safety, this doesn’t always happen.
Accidents can be prevented. The target for workplace safety should be 0 accidents. No one gets injured. No one. At no time. Nowhere. One accident is one too many. How many companies are living up to this mission statement? Is your company one of them?
