An efficient health and safety process is a cost effective one
Everyone knows if you can work efficiently, you can cut costs, time wasting and unexpected problems. This applies to your health and safety programme too. If you manage it well, you can cut costs, save time and improve the whole process.
So how do you achieve this effective programme and its cost saving benefits?
It's quite simple really.
You need to develop this structure...
Here are five steps to create an effective health and safety process
Step #1: Document every aspect of your health and safety programme carefully. If you can save time when it comes to admin, you can save money. This is the start of an effective structure that'll help you manage your health and safety programme.
Step #2: Establish a culture of ongoing maintenance and care. This will encourage employees to look after their safety equipment and prolong its lifespan. This will save the time and money it would take to replace it.

According to the OHSA, you must do induction
training for new employees, external contract workers, even employees returning from maternity leave. And every time there's new legislation, or if you have a new safety process or equipment.
It sounds like you could be doing induction
every month! And who has the time to create proper training material? And ensure its correct?
So, I did some research to see what Induction training is available to make your job easier.
Step #3: Stay up-to-date on what's happening in your company. If there are health and safety issues, it's better to deal with them before they turn into costly, time-consuming problems.
Step #4: Don't delay when it comes to fixing health and safety problems. If you put off fixing them, they start to stack up. That means when you get round to fixing the problems, you have ten to resolve and not just one. This will take much longer and cost you a great deal more.
Step #5: Open communication up to your employees. They'll know if something isn't working long before you do. This will help you sort out problems or make improvements quickly and effectively.
There you have it. With just five steps you can make your health and safety programme more cost effective.
