Health and safety is a key performance measure within successful and forward-thinking organizations. Effective leaders recognize that health and safety are not only moral imperatives but also contribute to achieving objectives across various organizational spectrums, including finance, operations, compliance, and governance. Productivity improvements, competitive advantages, talent retention, and effective risk management are just a few of the benefits that stem from a strong organizational health and safety performance and culture.
