Companies are coming under increasing commercial, regulatory and ethical pressures to control risk from their operations. This includes reducing occupational health & safety risks, injuries, illnesses and fatalities as well as operating in a socially responsible manner.
The majority of organizations work hard to ensure they comply with the appropriate legislation; however in order to maintain the appropriate level of care and compliance, many are now realizing the benefits a formalized approach to health and safety management systems and social responsibility programs can bring.
In addition to complying with national requirements the introduction of international standards such as ISO 45001 (which will replace OHSAS 18001), ISO 26000 and SMETA are giving organizations the opportunity to benefit from a set of expert independent eyes.
