Safety touches all levels within a company, from the line operator to the CEO — integrating safety into the culture of the workforce from the top down is imperative. Safety doesn’t have to come at the expense of productivity. Focusing and ingraining safety into the culture of a company is not only a compliance measure, but also provides tangible operational benefits. Safety not only ensures that all of your workers return home safe and healthy every day — it increases brand reputation, improves efficiency, and ultimately saves you money.
