27 Mar How Keeping on Top of Health and Safety Adds Value to Your Business.
Keeping on top of health and safety in the workplace can, and will, add value to your business.
With over 30,000 businesses operating in Norfolk, making sure your business is keeping on top of health and safety in the workplace has never been more important.
Although health and safety is not the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning, it is an important factor to consider.
To cut out the jargon and endless pages of text, here’s a simple list of how your business will benefit from up-to-date, and quality health and safety training:
So, let’s begin:
If all areas of the business are taken care of, the profit will look after itself. For instance, updating health and safety lessens the risk of accidents and injuries, therefore less legal costs.
It is no secret that a lack of health and safety puts your staff at risk.
By regularly investing in training for your staff, it not only improves efficiency, but it shows you to value your employees. Looking after your employees will help build a positive relationship.
A more professional workplace means fewer risks, reduced absenteeism, and smoother working processes.
With over half a million workplace-related injuries every year, and each employee taking at least 7 days to recover, productivity is sure to be affected. Instilling quality health and safety practices in the workplace will reduce absenteeism and improve productivity.
As well as health and safety, we can maximise the efficiency and production within your business.
Compete With Other Professional Businesses
A business functions more professionally when health and safety are assessed, and the recommended measures are implemented. A workplace that complies with health and safety regulations will improve the overall quality and professionalism of your business; you’ll be on the same elevated level as some of the best businesses in your industry.
Customer satisfaction is a big part of any business. Studies have shown there is a colouration between health and safety and customer satisfaction. Having a safe work environment has shown to have an impact on factors related to the quality of the work. If your quality is improved, your customer satisfaction will be too. Increase productivity and the excellence you offer through updating your health and safety and watch customer satisfaction rise.
Keeping up to date
To fulfil your obligation to ensure the welfare of staff and safety within the workplace, keeping up to date with improvements and standards is a must. It’s just as important to keep health and safety updated as it is to consider it in the first place.
Imagine installing a fire alarm and never testing it, what use is it if it doesn’t work?
Look around you now, have your surroundings changed, have you got new equipment, machinery or tools? Have you gained/lost employees? The slightest change could have a big impact on the overall running of your business.
