Safety 2017: Why Managers Must Address Workplace Safety and Compliance

The ASSE is already set to hold the Professional Development Conference and Exposition for the year 2017. A lot of stakeholders are expected to attend and share their experiences, technologies, and strategies related to workplace safety. You may be a policy drafter, supervisor, or personnel with interest in the topic of Occupational Safety and Health, and this year’s ASSE safety conference offers a chance for you to expand your capacities, interact with peers, and get inspired. This conference is an educational occasion where the most respected speakers will meet, and in which you have an opportunity to follow strategic sessions that will address the latest trends and issues. Definitely, you’ll learn a lot from the updates you’ll get on the most recent advancements in OSH approaches, skills, and innovations. It’s expected that 4,000 of your peers will attend the event, but what’s the reason for the topic of workplace safety sustaining so much relevance today?

Addressing workplace safety standards and policies results in a win/win scenario for all stakeholders, whether personnel, supervisors, or company owners. But OSH compliance requirements keep evolving as industries grow and workplace environments change, so it’s important to keep abreast of the latest developments.

One of the benefits of obeying OSH policies is less absenteeism and increased turnover. A reduction in operational costs is witnessed as productivity increases.
The Art of Mastering Expos

Staff morale has been shown to increase with a safer workplace environment. Dealing with stress and change is easier for employees working under conditions of high morale. Surely, an increase in staff moral will promote productivity while making workplace conditions more functional.
Lessons Learned from Years with Events

When all OSH procedures and requirements are observed at the workplace, there will be fewer incidences of on-the-job injuries, and that’s very important for continuity of workplace operations as well as the minimization of compensation costs. If an employee is injured while on the job, their employer is required to cover their medical costs and continue to pay their salaries during hospitalization and recovery, which really does hurt the bottom line. Worse still, an injured employee will be unable to work, so productivity will be affected too.

Adherence to OSH as specified brings about lower rates of accidents, and ultimately, lower healthcare and insurance costs. As an employer, you’ll enjoy less exposure to the possibility of paying fines or incurring litigation costs. An employer earns a good reputation as corporate member by creating an OSH-friendly image. This is great for public relations. In addition, your company will be in a better position to attract and retain skilled labor and customers.

We’re about to hold the 2017 Professional Development Conference and Exposition which gives you an opportunity to gain insights into the latest in terms of OSH evolution.
