Reasons for Managing Health and Safety

Reasons for Managing Health and Safety.
There are three fundamental reasons for organisations to manage health and safety risk:
Moral – as human beings we should feel obliged to look after each other’s safety.
Legal – there are strict legal obligations imposed on employers and employees relating to the safety of
employees and others affected by the business.
Economic – businesses that address health and safety risk are invariably more successful than those that do not.
Loss events such as accidents or ill-health led to significant direct and indirect costs.
