Whether you work in a Drilling rig or at a desk, a safe work environment is crucial. Whatever sort of business you do, there is always the possibility of an incident causing negative impacts on Health and safety of someone. All work exposes people to hazards, such as manual handling; dangerous machinery; toxic substances; electricity; working with display screen equipment or even psychological hazards such as stress.
Employees, otherwise known as human resources, are an organization’s most valuable asset. Workplace safety is about respecting and protecting that capital—human lives! Every employee has the right be safe at work while Organizations have a legal duty to put in place suitable arrangements to manage for health and safety of employees. Essentially you have to ensure absence of risk to safety and health of employees and others ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’.
Attention to health and safety is not just about being socially responsible or fulfilling an obligation. It also makes good business sense and you should regard it as just as important as the achievement of any other key business objective.
The values that create a Safe workspace includes commitment, safe systems and procedures, regular assessments and audits, communication, planning, Training and continuous improvement. A culture of safety minimizes preventable accidents and injuries, and save time, money and resources spent on dealing with incidents, repercussions and secondary issues. That itself is enough justification to admit that a safer business is more reliable, profitable and sustainable.
