Working to Improve Your Safety Culture

by Roosevelt Smith


Book Details

When it comes to workplace safety, it is a lot easier to prepare for an emergency than explain why you did not.

Our task, as business leaders, is to continue to reduce risk, secure our workers and increase our safety lifestyle. Demonstrating the value of safety to management is often a task because the revenue (ROI) can be complicated to evaluate. Safety needs to be inserted naturally into the entire working environment, starting at the top level. Safety factors are something you want to be proactive with, not reactive. Creating a safety program will eventually help your organization’s bottom line.
