SAFETY CULTURE

Workplace safety culture that leads to organizational efficiency

Workplace safety is of paramount importance in Ontario. The Occupational Health and Safety Act governs the workplace health and safety requirements through various legislations and regulations of the Act. Certain industries such as construction are prone to higher percentage of risk compared with other industries. READ MORE

COR™ process looks at three major aspects:

  • Documentation of your policies, processes, and procedures to meet compliance
  • Performance of internal and external audits to ensure that whatever is being documented is actually happening
  • Building a ‘safety culture’ through a sustainable health and safety program.

 

An online safety management system such as 4SafeCom™ helps make your program come alive. It will help you get COR™ certified and maintain your COR™ accreditation.

Workplaces may differ, activities may differ, and so may the risk of carrying out those activities. The big question here is how should companies be viewing safety at the workplace? Do they view it as a mandatory requirement as per law? Or do they need to view it as a wonderful opportunity to not only provide a safe workplace to their workers, but also engage with them regularly.

The second approach is the highly desirable one. If an organization succeeds in making safety an integral part of its culture over the long term, it creates a sustainable program, which adds to the brand value. Workplace safety and corporate brand image go hand-in-glove. We all know what happened to British Petroleum’s global brand image after the massive oil-leak tragedy. Therefore, it is of paramount importance to understand and respect the correlation between company brand and workplace safety. One of the best ways to ensure brand leadership is by working towards building a sustainable safety culture at the workplace.

Safety culture can be best defined as one that starts with ‘I’ within the organization and moves along with ‘we’. It’s one where everyone’s responsible for safety at the workplace. It encourages workers to view health and safety as a core responsibility rather than just a legislative requirement. It involves use of online systems, tools, and techniques that make the whole workplace operate efficiently with improved productivity.

Following are some of the major benefits of building a safety culture within your organization:


  • Creating, managing, and monitoring health and safety program in a sustainable manner removing dependencies on people
  • Stronger employee engagement through following an Internal Responsibility System
  • Improved organizational efficiency through increased use of technology coupled with a stronger and sustainable health and safety program
  • Effective risk management across all levels of workers of the organization
  • Boosting your corporate brand image
  • Consistent drop in accidents, incidents, and non-conformance lead to higher productivity and efficiency
