Managers and executives have many responsibilities, the most important of which, on a day-to-day basis, is ensuring that their products and/or services do no harm when accessed, or are in use, by their customers.
However just as fundamental is the responsibility to ensure that all people are safe, not just customers and clients but a company’s staff and personnel, associates, suppliers, and visitors, and many, many more. In the end a safe business is a viable one.
Although safety is a special case of quality, unlike quality safety does not return dividends in immediate and obvious ways, unless you take the time to study the implications of not being safe. Accountants usually consider it to be an insurance policy, without which the prospect of litigation, and large payouts is significantly more likely. We agree, but it’s also much, much more.
It’s a critical responsibility for managers and executives, and a task requiring the help of professionals, because of the magnitude of the implications of falling short. We can help you deliver safety — safe products, safe services, safe equipment, safe facilities, safe processes, and, most importantly, safe people.
