Here's the one tip that'll save your company thousands on health and safety
When you implement your health and safety programme, include procedures for constant micro-maintenance. This sounds expensive but all it means is you must create a system for taking ongoing care of your safety equipment and monitoring your health and safety programme.
For example, creating procedures for looking after your employees' PPE means it'll last longer and you won't need to replace it as often.
Or, if you have protocols for reporting small problems, you can adjust your programme as you go. Making small changes when necessary is much more cost effective than completely reworking your health and safety programme.
So ensure you, your managers and employees constantly take care of your health and safety programme! It'll save you thousands in the long run.
