So, What Can We Do To Help Change That?
When it comes to production and workplace safety, which do you believe is more important?
Some might say production is more important while others might say workplace safety.If you take moment and really think about it, I believe you will find that both are equally important.
Why is that?
Because without production a company can’t pay its bills, pay employees and make a profit.
Without a safe workplace, employees get injured, production is interrupted, employees’ lives are affected (in a bad way) and the company incurs both direct and indirect costs associated with those accidents, making it difficult for the company to function and make a profit.
So, you can see that both are equally important to help ensure a company will survive in today’s market.
Then why is it that when it comes to workplace safety, often it takes a second seat to production?
Maybe it’s because for as long as anyone can remember companies have always put an emphasis on production since it is directly related to profits.A common perception about workplace safety is that implementing a company safety program will actually slow down production.
So, what can we do to help change this?
The first thing we need to do is to educate company owners and management about the true value of workplace safety and how it can have both a positive and negative effect on the company’s bottom line and future.
Next we need to help these companies understand that when properly implemented, a company safety program will not have a negative effect on production and the bottom line.
In fact, when properly implemented a company safety program will actually have a positive effect on a company’s future.
Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll talk a little more about what your company can do to implement a safety program that will protect your employees, company reputation and profits.
Until then, do your part to make workplace safety a reality at your place of work. You won’t regret it.
