Learnings from Safety Professionals: Old and New Views

Learnings from Safety Professionals

March, 2017, our EHSQ Community had a Mastermind session with Carsten Busch and Rosa Antonia Carrillo, hosted by Tamara Parris, to discuss the Modern and Traditional Safety Management styles, and the challenges EHS Professionals face with each.

During our sessions we had just over 142 community members share their views in our Members voice survey. During the session, we had several members voiced their challenges and insights learned through their own work experiences.

From our “Member’s Voice” discussion we learned 78% of our members use an Empowering Leadership style in their workplace for safety management, and 43% use the Taylorism /Traditional approach.

safety talk intelex blog

A company’s reputation, image, and brand are its most valuable assets. According to a Forbes article, a recent study suggests that 80% of employees aged 18 to 30 will leave a company if they believe it has poor ethics or a weak brand. These are profitable assets, as a company with a reputation for quality and safety can charge more than their competitors for similar products because customers perceive this extra cost as a reflection of superior product and service.

It becomes clear that having a strong and proactive occupational health and safety reputation matters when it comes to protecting and enhancing a business’ brand image and value. In recognition of this, many companies are allocating a significant portion of their budgets to maintaining and enhancing corporate social responsibility.
