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.
