IOSH calls on NI businesses to promote a safety culture
Posted by Jason Nicholls
The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has urged businesses in Northern Ireland to establish a strong safety culture.
Last Thursday (22nd November) IOSH's Northern Ireland branch advised company bosses to adopt behavioural safety strategies in order to help reduce the number of injured at work.
Branch chair Kieran Robinson said: "Unsafe behaviour in the workplace causes a significant number of Northern Ireland’s work place accidents.
"For example, we need to tackle the problem of employees on construction sites who openly flout company rules by not wearing hi-vis vests or hard hats."
Mr Robinson explained it is a shame how companies are "sticking to bad habits" in the current climate.
Barker Ross is another organisation that is aiming to improve health and safety standards, as the company recently introduced its Worksafe package.
The programme examines induction processes and codes of conduct for drug and alcohol testing, accident call-out processes and operational training, helping to lower the chances of employees suffering injuries.
