Safety today is not just a matter of regulatory requirements. Though it is mandatory and a compelling reason, it becomes effective only when business managers realize the importance of employee safety and well-being for their own business growth.
Organizations that proactively manage safety find the productivity levels of their employees to be higher. It enhances brand value, improves customer satisfaction, and leads to faster growth. An unsafe environment causes injuries and illnesses, absenteeism, poor motivation, higher employee turnaround, and, even direct costs such as litigation, compensation, penalties, etc.
Therefore, it is in the best interest of businesses to truly transform their safety management system into a responsive and proactive system that improves workplace safety and employee well-being.
Safety Transformation should be planned out properly due to the cost, time, and operational implications. A badly implemented safety management system can have only a limited impact and may soon be abandoned due to its ineffectiveness.
Businesses also must assess digital tools suited to their organization to effect a digital transformation of safety management in their organization.
A good digital safety management system should be cloud-based, to facilitate collaboration across geographies and minimize the cost of the solution. It should align with the leading and applicable regulations and standards so that keeping pace and making changes becomes easier. It should be modular so that businesses can choose the modules they need based on their priorities.
Further, the solution should enable businesses with reacting to events and incidents quickly, prevent incidents from happening or recurring in the future, and proactively facilitate predicting potential events for continuous improvement.
