Ensure workforce health and safety
Most organisations prioritise workforce safety. The trouble is, the health and safety professionals responsible for running workplace safety programmes spend too much time on compliance paperwork and tasks. There are accidents to record and incidents to report, site inspections to conduct and job hazards to remediate. Even then, compliance can be deprioritised by the unexpected. A workplace accident can lead to an OSHA fine, or a lawsuit hits the 24-hour news cycle. The COVID-19 pandemic has compounded this challenge by adding a renewed emphasis on protecting employee health in the workplace and employee health in the workplace, backed by new standards for workplace safety.
Understanding and accounting for workplace safety is a complex set of intertwined processes that start at the top of the organisation. Workplace health and safety requires thoughtful and well-communicated plans that involve everyone in the organisation. Taking a risk-based approach by integrating health and safety management into all risk and compliance efforts. Support from integrated risk and compliance technology is the only way to ensure employees stay healthy on the job and return home safely every day.
