Employees are the most important aspect of any business; however, Work Health and Safety considerations are often overlooked in favour of other business activities, as Safety is viewed as a complex and expensive task, which does not generate profit for the business or undertaking.
Protecting the health, safety and well being of your workers, can assist your business in 3 core areas:
- Meeting legal obligations
- Meeting your moral obligations
- Reducing costs, resulting in increased profitability
The unforeseen costs of a business or undertaking, conducting work activities in a poor Work Health and Safety environment includes:
- Workers experiencing a short-, medium- or long-term negative impact of an injury or incident
- Exposure to potential fines and/or penalties of the WHS Act and regulations
- Increased costs for workers compensation
- Increased recruitment demands and lost productivity
- Increased medical and rehabilitation expenses
- The cost to investigate an injury or incident
- Increased training or re-skilling costs
- Possible property damage to plant or equipment
Most, especially small to medium sized, companies find it challenging to stay on top of a complex area such as WHS and find it difficult to know where to start in meeting their compliance obligations. This is where Drake Safety can assist you.
