Safety 2017: Why Managers Must Address Workplace Safety and Compliance

Arrangements have already been made for the ASSE to hold the 2017 Professional Development Conference and Exposition. A lot of stakeholders are expected to attend and share their experiences, technologies, and strategies related to workplace safety. Whether you’re a policy maker, manager, or employee interested in the subject of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH), the ASSE safety conference for this year provides an opportunity to grow your capabilities, link up with peers, and draw inspiration. The conference is an educational event at which the most distinguished speakers will converge, and where you have a chance to attend strategic sessions dealing with the latest trends and topics. Definitely, you’ll learn a lot from the updates you’ll get on the most recent advancements in OSH approaches, skills, and innovations. More than 4,000 of your peers may attend the conference, but why does the issue of workplace safety keep attracting so much focus today?

Addressing workplace safety standards and policies results in a win/win scenario for all stakeholders, whether personnel, supervisors, or company owners. However, OSH compliance requirements are always dynamic as industries develop and cause changes to the workplace environment, making it necessary to stay up-to-date regarding the latest developments.

An important benefit in adhering to OSH requirements is reduced absenteeism and increased turnover. The costs of operations are reduced while productivity is enhanced.

A safer workplace environment is also known to boost employee morale. Dealing with stress and change is easier for employees working under conditions of high morale. For sure, improved morale will make employees more productive, creating a more functional workplace environment.

When the workplace has all OSH requirements and standards complied with, employees will be less exposed to injury, and that’s crucial to the continuity of company processes and reduction of compensation expenses. When a member of staff is injured while working, the law requires their employer to take care of costs of medication and continue paying their salary over the course of treatment and recovery, which has a negative impact on profitability. Moreover, an injured worker may not report to work, so productivity will be impacted too.

Observing OSH as required leads to minimal incidences as well as a decline in healthcare and insurance costs. As a business, you’ll benefit from minimal exposure to the risk of paying penalties or suffering litigation costs. A company that establishes an OSH-friendly image enjoys an improved reputation as a corporate body. That’s important for public relations. On top of that, your company will appeal more to and retain expert staff and customers.

The 2017 Professional Development Conference & Exposition is just about to happen, and it provides a chance for you to update yourself on the latest in terms of OSH compliance.
