Health and Safety at Work: Companies Shift AttitudesSource: Safe to Work | 3 March 2014
The approach to occupational health and safety is changing for the better all over the world.
Companies are shifting from a reactive attitude to a conscious management of operational issues, a prelude to the development of a real corporate culture of occupational health and safety.
These are the findings of an international survey conducted by DNV GL—Business Assurance and the research institute GFK Eurisko on more than 3,860 professionals from businesses in different industries in Europe, the Americas, and Asia.
Health & Safety Management
Managing health and safety at work has become an integrated part of today’s corporate strategy. More than 90% of people surveyed agree, and 76% state they even implement an ad hoc policy, above and beyond what is required by law and regulations.
The bigger the corporation the higher the application rate, but, surprisingly, 70% of small firms adopt specific approaches, too.
