Work Engagement and the Evolving Role of Safety Committees
Over 7,600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases - that’s over 2.78 million every year. The burden of occupational injuries and diseases is significant, both for employers and the wider economy, resulting in losses from early retirements, staff absence and rising insurance premiums.
To combat the problem, ISO has developed a new standard, ISO 45001, occupational health and safety management systems, that will help organisations reduce this burden by providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions, all over the world.
Our IQ Academy webinar for March welcomed Wayne Darwin of Tarmac, Senior HSE Manager responsible for assurance and governance to provide an insight into the implementation experience of ISO 45001. Wayne has previously held operational and SHEQ roles with Hanson and Babcock and is currently involved in a project team implementing ISO 45001 across the Tarmac business.
During the bitesize lunch & learn session Wayne takes us through what ISO 45001 is, its benefits and purpose, his experience and approach to implementing the standard along with the opportunities and learning outcomes that have arisen from this.
