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!

    This is a true issue regarding H&S management, every thing that companies can do to improve their asset conditions might involve spending and cost. Nevertheless there is an important issue that most of the times is overlooked. People are important and relevant means to achieve an effective asset management; employees are those who work in a daily base, they have the knowledge, they feel and they perceive different things being in their work locations. Therefore employees are an effective “tool” and effective way to determinate what the company needs and the way to develop different programmes, involving employees and training them is a way to safe economic resources, is a way to create knowledge and to develop H&S programmes, they can be the source of information, the designers of policies and the monitors of them. Articulating this kind of programmes with the routine jobs, is an effective way to bring value to organizations, and at the same time is an effective way to manage resources.
