Why Health, Safety, Security and environment is important at the workplace? There is more to this question than one thinks.
Let’s be honest, “rigorous health and safety “is not an expression that gets startup founders excited. For SME health and safety need not be a draconian system of regulations that holds them back…rather, if invested properly, health and safety is the well-secured ladder the SME can use to climb to the top.
OSHA, the US Government official health and safety board have done the math’s here. For every US$ spent on safety, a business can save US$ 4.6. This figure comes from money that is not spent on lawsuits, repairs, sick pay, legal fees etc.
