Safety is the Key to Operational Excellence
There is extensive evidence that operational excellence and safety are inextricably linked. As a result, from the corporate perspective, safety is, or should be, a value proposition. The experience of many global corporations shows that implementation of robust safety and health management systems not only reduce risk of serious and fatal injuries, but also lead to higher productivity and profitability.
To improve worker safety overall, the safety and health community needs to better demonstrate the link between safety and excellence and explore ways to better explain and promote this concept to corporate leaders, investors, regulators and the public.
