The trend these days is for tougher Health and Safety legislation and clearer accountability. Society has a higher expectation to work in safe and healthy workplaces. These facts require companies to look at health and safety in a new way.
Incident statistics, audits, and lag indicators provide only part of the picture. In a governance role you need to know where the company's "red flag" risks are and that they are being managed:
- Where is your organisation’s health and safety culture falling short and exposing your people to unacceptable risk?
- How do you know what future risks are?
- How do you know that the solution you have invested in is the right one?
- How do you know how engaged people are in its success?
- How do you know and show that it has reduced risk?
Unless you are using a process like NewHeights™ to strategically lead health and safety decision-making, there may be cause to worry.
