THE ROLE OF HSE EXECUTIVES IS EVOLVING. ARE YOU READY?
Investment in occupational health and safety programmes has long been contributing to better workforce performance, reduced turnover, lower costs and less waste. But as COVID-19 is requiring changes to health and safety standards, HSE Executives are finding themselves at the forefront of adopting and implementing these changes, from instigating social distancing and quarantine procedures to establishing emotional assistance and ergonomic support for home working. This can be daunting and may require HSE functions to have additional skills and expertise.
What’s more, with health now taking centre stage, programmes today should not only integrate occupational health, hazards protection, injury and illness prevention, and mental health support, but also take into consideration the new risk environment and the need for the HSE function to think beyond the workplace towards the wider community. In this aspect, there are many good examples of organisations playing a key role in improving health outcomes for those beyond their immediate workers; collaborating with the local health system as well as adding philanthropic support to communities.
Whether you are looking to conduct a workplace health risk assessment, manage injury and illness, develop a community outreach strategy or define a holistic health and wellbeing programme, we provide you with tailored and compliant solutions that meet the scope and unique needs of your organisation.

Evidence-based positive ROI on OH prevention programmes
Absenteeism prevention programmes alone (without taking health or other effects into account) prove that absenteeism costs fall by about $2.73 for every dollar spent on workplace disease prevention and health promotion programmes.
Implementation of wellness programmes can lead to medical costs falling by about $3.27 for every dollar spent.
Interestingly, there is also a connection between implementing an effective health and safety policy and a higher stock market performance.
