2) Incorporate safety into your company culture
Incorporating safety into the company culture means talking the talk and
walking the walk. Once you’ve announced a health and safety program, leadership should diligently enforce rules, processes and procedures. This doesn’t just mean speaking to employees who aren’t compliant with the expectation, but also means congratulating those that do comply.
3) Training, processes and procedures
Does your company provide health and safety training when it onboards new employees? Does it hold monthly safety meetings, post safety bulletins and incident reports or have an open line for employee feedback? If so, you’re well on your way to establishing a safety culture. If not, these are just a few of the ways you can begin to bring safety to the forefront in your organization.
4) Use technology to track your progress
Your business could have tens of thousands of assets when you consider your employees, equipment, property, third-party contractors and more. Tracking the health and safety of each of these assets is no easy task. Today, industry leading organizations use technology to automate the compliance of their workforce. This means tracking the training and certifications of staff and third parties, the maintenance of equipment and audits of your worksites. See how ComplyWorks’ web-based solutions
