Whether one is self employed (working alone), or an employer of any number of persons, accident prevention is a sound investment, backed by the interest and drive to achieve such.
The management of construction safety can take many approaches to include, taking control and acknowledging ownership of responsibilities for all activities in the workplace. It must “create in within everyone, at all levels in the workplace, a safety mindedness”, according to Roland Blake, a prominent safety manager.
In the approach to the management of safety, SafeReps Co. Ltd, integrates coordination and cooperation in the control of activities at the workplace by showing the needed information and means available that are necessary to achieve our client’s goals. We believe that no workplace can be completely safe without the support and interest of an effective management system.
Effective management of safety begins by establishing a positive Safety and Health culture in the workplace that produces respect for each other values, perceptions, competencies and behavior that are committed to make safety a sound investment, which involves all levels of the workplace to “buy in” the concept that investing in safety is not what it cost, but what it saves.
This mindset begins with management’s (the employer) acceptance of high standards and developing appropriate controls with efficient and effective management systems. All levels of the workplace must believe that whatever systems and measures put in place would be effective, even when financial and performance goals are affected, because reputation is more important for survival.
