Poor H&S at work

By failing to address H&S in an organisation can contribute to human and financial costs, as millions of working days are lost because of work-related illnesses or injuries. Moreover, thousands of people die from certain diseases. Furthermore, companies may lose their reputation because all the above mentioned H&S issues. Nevertheless, the outcome of poor H&S include numerous costs such as incident costs, the cost of first aid and other equioments; investigation costs when an accident happens, it needs to be reported, investigated and recorded; administration costs and so on...

Another Reflection…

Failure to include H&S in the company's decision making process may lead to catastrophic results. Interestingly, many cases of H&S failure's root causes relates to leadership. H&S places laws, regulations and duties on organisations and on the top management, therefore employees can be personally liable when these duties are breached. Consequently, H&S is everyone's responsibility. Hence, a strong, active, committed and effective leadership is inevitable to communicate H&S through the hierarchy and integrate H&S into daily business decision makings.
