Without a strong culture of safety in place at your organization, unsafe conditions can go uncorrected or unnoticed. Volunteers and members may not feel comfortable raising safety-related concerns and the risk of serious injuries may increase.
To make your Lodge safer, it is important to take a proactive approach before incidents occur.
With the right plan in place, you can help prevent injuries, illnesses and deaths at your organization, as well as the suffering and financial hardship these events can cause for members and their families.
According to OSHA, safety and health programs are helpful in a multitude of ways and can:
- Prevent injuries and illnesses
- Improve compliance with laws and regulations
- Reduce liability costs
- Engage members
- Enhance social responsibility goals
- Increase productivity and enhance overall organizational operations
