What makes a good EHS system?.jpg

The best Environmental, Health and Safety system may satisfy the need to demonstrate a company’s’ compliance with the OHS Act and Regulations but it will not necessarily make the workplace safe unless all employees understand and believe that safety is all about them.

It is expected that a “best of breed” system will provide:

  • alerts of pending events
  • escalations if tasks are not actioned
  • risk analyses
  • historical information on accidents, injuries, accident and near misses
  • accident investigations
  • corrective actions
  • claims information
  • document management; and
  • reports and dashboards

However, this alone may not improve safety. The safety message must be consistent, supported and demonstrated by all management and the attainment of safety goals celebrated by everyone.  The company safety culture can be improved by management regularly “walking around “their company and actively listening to, and talking with employees who they know by name. This will help break down the perceived “them and us” culture where any management directive is automatically viewed with distrust and foster a relationship where suggestions, questions and comments can be exchanged in a non-threatening environment.

In summary, a safety culture of zero harm is dependent on good communication good training and respect combined with a “best of breed” Environmental, Health and Safety system.
