Two ways to save money on your health and safety programme without skimping on quality

by , 14 August 2014
Health and safety can be a costly business. You have to buy equipment, pay for training and cover the costs of creating safety manuals. And that's just the start of the expenses.

But you don't need to kiss your healthy bank balance goodbye just yet. There are ways to run a successful health and safety programme without blowing the bank and still maintain a high health and safety standard.

Do this to comply with health and safety rules and keep your wallet happy...

#1: Micro-maintenance can save you lots of money when it comes to health and safety 

 
What is micro-maintenance? 
 
It's the ongoing action of taking care of elements in your health and safety programme. For example, if your employees keep their PPE clean and well looked after, it'll last longer. The same goes for bigger pieces of machinery too.
 
If you and your employees take care of your equipment you won't need to replace or fix it as often. This will save you a fortune each year.
 
But this isn't the only way you can save money when it comes to health and safety.

Do you have more than 20 employees?
 
Don't ignore this health and safety obligation or else!
 
The DoL will slap you with a R50 000 fine or 1 year in jail if you don't have a health and safety representative.

#2: You can also save money on health and safety by monitoring your workplace 

 
If you have to do a big over haul of your health and safety programme it'll cost you a fortune. You'll need to retrain everyone, print new manuals and buy new equipment.
 
But if you constantly monitor your health and safety programme, you can ensure it stays effective and only make changes when you need to.
 
This will save you from costly upgrades and time wasted dealing with crisis management.
 
There you have it. It's easy to reduce your health and safety costs while still giving your employees the best protection possible.
