The human element of the Safety Advisor's job - things that can (and do) go wrong
Monday, 04 August, 2014
Health and Safety Advisors are the heart of the organisation in terms of knowledge about health and safety issues and preventing incidents. However, they are still humans, which means that they, too, can make mistakes.
You do not want to be one of the Health and Safety Advisors who:
- always provide negative feedback
- are only seen on-site when there has been an incident
- think work and safety are two separate entities
- fail to follow through on past incidents.
