Creating and Sustaining a Culture of Health and Safety (part 1)

More than 313 million global work-related accidents occur each year – with a high percentage of those accidents resulting in significant time away from work. Each accident bears a personal and financial cost for the worker and the employer. Yet, many companies still take a corrective outlook on employee health and safety, dealing with accidents as they happen, rather than focusing on preventive measures and safety benefits.

At the center of a preventive employee health and safety (EHS) culture is the belief at the executive level that accidents and harm should be preventable.
