Good health and safety practices save you money (no, not fines!)
“Health and Safety has gone mad”
“Health and Safety nazi!”
“Health and Safety jobsworth!”
Like many other professions, health and safety does have a fair share of individuals who would have you agreeing with at least one of the comments above. But is this all we can expect from an industry that is considered one of the scariest to deal with?
Instead of taking an approach that scares and demands change from an employer, we take a slightly different view. It could be because we believe in the root to stem approach of providing advice, guidance and support. It may be that we are trained leadership and management professionals. Most importantly though, it is probably because we believe in a no-nonsense approach to helping you and your business find solutions.
We don’t just look at health and safety when we support a business. We look at how people at all levels communicate with each other, the culture within the organisation, the types of body language people use. Afterall, the only things capable of making any changes are the people in your business.
Our solutions are people focused and because of this, our effectiveness in implementing change is incredibly high. Our repeat business and retained clients include Plc, Blue Chip and lots of SME’s. Why? We understand health and safety from the finance directors’ point of view, from the CEO point of view and from the person who cuts the grass point of view. It all matters and we achieve our results through recognising this.
Some of our most recent projects have included the following additional benefits:
· Saving £80k per year on waste processing
· Improving the communication flow between senior management and middle management
· Cost-saving ideas presented directly to decision makers through facilitated workshops
The obvious project benefits have included:
Reduced lost time injuries with a direct saving of over £100k in sick days per annum
· Addressed root causes of serious crush injuries (no, it wasn’t the machine causing the crush)
· Mitigated the need to retrofit a building with highly expensive blast glass by identifying the issue pre-build
