Health and safety
Over the past few days, learning how crucial health and safety really is to an organization has exposed to the reality that this topic is not upheld with a lot of concern especially for small and medium sized companies. Since it requires some bit of capital to have a running program, some organizations shy away from implementing such programs. It is sad that many of the accidents that happen can be avoided and implementing such things as the RIDDOR can help avoid minor and even major accidents from happening. It all comes down to implementing change in these orgganizations. In as much as it is expensive to have such programs running, they in the end help save the organization lots of money in depositions, cases, etc. Its up to us as future leaders to ensure we and the workers work in a safe healthy environment and as the doctors law is.....our motto, just like them should be.."Do no harm" to employees in any way!
