Employee Safety

Focusing on safety can have a positive impact on your company’s bottom line. Incidents have been proven to have a negative impact on business – slowing or halting operations. In some cases incidents can lead to violations and fines from regulatory agencies. Worker safety is something that everyone from CEO’s to forklift drivers is responsible for, but creating a culture of safety, where safety is integrated in all day-to-day operations, starts at the top. The biggest obstacle to creating a culture of safety is managers who don’t make safety a priority. You can start by taking advantage of the resources below.
