Safety-centric cultures save lives.
Employers have a legal obligation to provide a safe working environment for their employees. A true culture of safety, however, focuses less on these obligations and more on the tangible and intangible benefits a commitment to workplace safety can provide: lower costs associated with work-related injuries and illnesses, increased worker productivity and higher overall levels of employee engagement.
Topics covered in this webinar include:
- The different approaches employers take with regard to workplace safety;
- Techniques for encouraging company-wide buy-in for safety initiatives; and
- The benefits of empowering employees to take responsibility for their own safety, as well as the safety of those around them.
