Prevention is always better than cure! Well stated Phil, I couldn't agree more. Also, to back up Chris Boyace's input that business owners are spending more on OHS. We are OHS Consultants specialising civil and commercial construction Australia Wide and week on week we are starting to assist more and more businesses to create safer workplaces through documented and followed systems and safe work practice awareness.
Phil KhorFounder at SavvySME
Great article Michael, I agree as business owners we need to remember we have every responsibility for the safety and well being of our people. "Safety comes first" is a motto I hold dearly especially when I have workers on construction sites. I'd like to also point out it's not just about compliance or insurance because prevention is always better than cure. So it really pays to be vigilant and go the extra mile to train and care for our people. Never tempt Murphy's Law. Thanks Michael.
