Pay Me Now or Pay Me Later

I have talked about it time and time again, but I believe it is so important that I need to keep repeating it until everyone really understands its value.

Your company safety program WILL NOT protect your employees from hazards in the workplace, company reputation and profits if you don’t implement it.

Because until your program is implemented it is just another company document that has little or no value.

Implementation is everything when it comes to workplace safety and when I say you need to implement your safety program – what I mean is you need to get everyone to buy into your program and support it form the top down to your most recently hired employee.

It must be a part of your company’s core values.

That means:

  • The company not only has to talk about workplace safety – management must do their part to ensure everyone does what is necessary to work safely every minute of every workday.
  • Employees must comply with all company safety policies and procedures – even when they never have done it that way in the past.
  • The company not only has to provide the necessary safety equipment – they also must make sure it is used.
  • Employees not only have to make sure they have the safety equipment they need to do a job safely – they must use it.

This list could go on and on, but I’m sure you get my point.

When it comes to workplace safety – you can, as the saying goes, "Pay me now or pay me later."

The sad part is that by paying later someone’s life could be seriously jeopardized, the company could be hit with citations that affect its reputation, and profits could be hit hard with those costly OSHA citations.

It’s a fact that by implementing a company safety program that everyone in the company buys into, everyone wins. The company saves money and the employees go home at the end of the day in the same shape they showed up in.

So, why not pay a little now and save a whole lot later? It’s a win-win for everyone.
