You've conducted your risk assessment, updated your standard operating procedures, and communicated your latest Health and Safety policy to your team. But how can you ensure that the information designed to protect your employees is being digested and implemented throughout your organisation?

Whilst you can’t guarantee 100% implementation by every team member, the approach you take to communicating and engaging with your employees can build a solid foundation for a positive health and safety culture, increasing effective implementation.

Implementing a Positive Health and Safety Culture

Implementing a positive health and safety culture is a long-term, continuous improvement effort for your Safety Management System. Focus on building a symbiotic relationship between team members and a living health and safety management system through:

  1. Engagement – Collaboratively involve team members for real-world, improving health and safety policies applicable to those you aim to protect. Employee engagement is fundamental to your team realising health and safety policies.
  2. Planning – Good policies should involve continuous collaboration from all team members, encouraging engagement with procedures.
  3. Mobilisation – An effective Safety Management System with team collaboration will drive positive implementation.

Benefits of a Positive Health and Safety Culture

A positive culture benefits your employees, organisation, and other stakeholders you work with. Large organisations exhibiting good practises can improve health and safety in SMEs through a ‘trickle down’ effect, as evidenced by Loughborough University research. As industry leaders, you can collaboratively promote effective Safety Management Systems benefiting organisations and individuals.

Proactively protect your team by working collaboratively, asking for feedback, and implementing majority-benefiting suggestions. Make your Health and Safety Management System effective for both employees and company.
