Health and Safety Compliance
Health and safety compliance is very important for a number of reasons:
-First the actual safety of the employees
-Non-compliance can trigger fines
-Non-compliance can trigger hikes in insurance premiums
-Injuries sustained by employees in a non-compliant workplace environment can engender additional fines, additional premiums not to mention law suits that bypass the corporate vail
Authorities deal with Health and Safety violations differently in the different jurisdictions, but one can rest assured that the consequences can cripple a business. Even so, a surprisingly large number of businesses do not conform the the various Acts especially for companies that have never been audited or have not had any claims. The large numbers are mainly due to the fact that for most smaller and mid sized companies the process is relatively onerous as typically one employee is made responsible for conformity with the Act among their many other business and position related responsibilities. Bottom line is that very many important conformity activities are forgotten or are never given the priority levels required to address them.
Not only Reminders
This is a solution that sends friendly reminders to the person responsible to complete mission critical tasks. If they are ignored or simply not completed within a programmed time frame. Escalation occurs … A message is sent to the first persons’ report to. If that person does not complete the task, that persons’ report to is sent a message and so on till ownership or the C-Suite is contacted.
