Continued focus on Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) is proving successful – and it’s saving lives. According to Safe Work Australia’s Key Work Health and Safety Statistics, tragically there were 182 workplace fatalities in Australia in 2016. As huge as that number sounds, it’s actually a reduced fatality rate, having dropped 49% compared to 2007 figures.
Ensuring the health and wellbeing of employees and visitors is essential for every business and across all industries, regardless of the size of the company.
There are so many benefits to focusing on WHS in your business, the most important being the protection of your employees and visitors. Meeting or exceeding your WHS requirements not only protects your people and your business, it can also benefit your business in other unexpected ways.
