Every organization must define the procedures and constraints required to achieve its strategic objectives. However, in doing so, the organization exposes itself to a wide variety if risks that may have an adverse impact on clients, employees, society and the organization itself. Changes that are initiated within the organization or even provoked by external factors drive an ever-changing risk landscape that must be pro-actively managed in order to safely achieve the objectives of your organization.
By adopting a safety management system it is possible for your organization to proactively manage risk and ensure that strategic objectives are met.
A safety management system coordinates objectives across the organization and facilitates the implementation of standardized risk management techniques. It provides assurance on control effectiveness and delivers feedback on system performance thereby allowing for continuous optimization.
By building a safety management system the frequency and impact of errors can be reduced, thereby improving safety and reducing costs. Activities related to error remediation will decrease, allowing valuable resources to be re-assigned to other important initiatives in the organization.
Finally, a safety management system also brings the benefit of a better work environment for all employees which reinforces the organization as an attractive place of work.
