By making safety a value of your organization you are recognizing that safety is not just the absence of incidents, but it is work performed in a way that reduces hazard and risk across the organization.
World-class organizations are those with leadership that understands the fundamental importance of safety. Dedication to the identification and mitigation of workplace hazards and the development of an inclusive safety culture demonstrate leadership's long-term sustainable perspective. What is it that these organizations know to be true about safety?
By employing certified safety practitioners, an organization is integrating specialists who connect safety with organizational performance for maximum stakeholder value.
By preventing incidents and injury through workplace planning, training, and hazard mitigation; company-wide goals are achieved and projects are completed on budget and on schedule.
Those who demonstrate a commitment to safety often see increases in worker engagement and morale. When workers connect doing a job safely with doing a job better, faster, and with increased efficacy, the entire organization wins and workers go home to their families proud of their teams.
