A Legal, Ethical and Financial Obligation

A Legal, Ethical and Financial Obligation – Corporate Governance Requirements

From an organisational perspective, safety auditing is a crucial business process. Identification of hazards and the resulting planning:

  • Reduces legal risk – you can avoid the costs and penalties associated with non-compliance, or worse, the issues resulting from the occurrence of an accident
  • Is ethical – as employers, there is a moral obligation to keep workers safe and healthy as far as is practicable
  • Maintains productivity – injured or ill workers are unable to be productive, and the downtime associated with accidents can be extremely costly
