Securing a safe workplace environment is paramount for businesses and organizations. While there are several ways to achieve this, preparing for emergencies such as fires, carbon monoxide (CO) leaks, or break-ins is crucial. As the world gradually shifts back to in-person business operations in a post-COVID era, reviewing and reinforcing your business’s security measures is imperative.
The benefit of investing in safety
When employees feel secure, they tend to perform better. In contrast, inadequate emergency measures result in an additional burden on employees, which negatively affects productivity. Prioritizing safety and establishing robust protocols is essential to the safety and well-being of employees.
According to Colliers International, employees who feel safe will report:
- Improved health and wellbeing
- Greater productivity
- Higher performance
- Increased job satisfaction
- Greater work participation and increased social inclusion
- Increased individual, team, and organizational resilience
- Lower absenteeism rates
- Less workplace injury and workers’ compensation claims
SafetyCulture also noted improvements in employee retention and improved company reputation.
Safety is a vital investment for companies to remain competitive. By prioritizing safety, companies create an environment that benefits the entire organization and ensures long-term success.
