Behavioural Based Safety
What could an undeveloped safety culture cost your business?
A limited or undeveloped safety culture can lead to unforeseen and serious consequences for your business. It is not just the victims themselves who will suffer the emotional impact of accidents - their family, friends and all of your workers will be affected.
This extended impact presents a very real and significant cost to the business, due to lost productivity, medical and counsellor bills, legal charges and recruitment fees - just some of the costs you could incur.
The impact of these costs can lead to serious challenges for the organisation. With the introduction of the corporate manslaughter legislation in 2008, organisations are now liable to unlimited fines and responsible Directors, if proven to be negligent, are also potentially subject to custodial sentences.

Ensure your business is protected.
“It’ll never happen to us” is a common mind-set - and the belief that implementing a system based culture of safety compliance is all that is required is a common misconception.
It has become clear, however, that compliance alone is not enough and the law now requires organisations to do everything in their power to prevent injuries and fatalities in the workplace. The focus of organisations is now shifting to a behavioural based approach to safety.
Aside from the legal situation, consider the 4.5m working days lost every year to accidents in the UK, the associated recruitment costs, administration time and potential ill-feeling within your workforce - safety is more than just following a process, safety is a culture based on an intrinsic desire for safer living.
Embedding a culture of Safety Excellence in your organisation not only protects your business from financial, emotional and legal costs, but yields productivity, improved performance and an engaged workforce.
