The most successful EHS programs are those that are part of your company culture and actively engage employees in the process. Taking a more creative approach to safety reminders can set off a unique spark of recognition, and help people think about safety in a new way.
Environment, health and safety (EHS) programs can do more for your company than simply checking off compliance boxes. EHS can also be an integral part of your company’s culture, demonstrating to employees that their happiness, health and safety is a priority—leading to more productivity and a more proactive approach to minimizing risk. Even in low risk environments, like offices or retail settings, environment, health and safety considerations are important to a successful organization. After all, low risk doesn’t mean no risk.

Taking safety for granted, however, is the last thing we want to do. There’s nothing more important than our wellbeing, of course. But did you know that companies that invest in safety actually save money?
In his first column for the newly launched CodeWatcher magazine, Green Builder Media founder Ron Jones talks about builders’ reactions to regulation.
If one were to listen only to the endless railings of the building industry voices against every form of regulation–but most especially any proposed increases in energy performance requirements and the attendant adoption of codes and standards that are developed to implement and enforce those enhancements–it might be easy to assume that the loud and stubborn opposition on the part of industry practitioners is universal. My experience tells me that nothing could be further from the truth.
As owner of some 6,000 trucks, SUVs, and cars used in field operations across a sprawling 22-state system, Norfolk Southern ranks as a Top 100 commercial fleet. In 2015, the company piloted a test using telematics technology to enhance driver safety.

As demographic shifts accelerate the changing global workforce, leaders who leverage the diversity of their employee populations and create an inclusive culture, could see higher levels of safety and engagement within their organization.
