Health and Safety Policies and Procedures
As an employer, your priority is to ensure a safe working environment for your employees. Not only is this a legal requirement, it also makes good business sense.
Having the right policies and procedures in place enables you to identify potential hazards, reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, and demonstrates your commitment to the safety and wellbeing of your employees.
At ESS Ltd, we help you review, develop and optimise your health and safety management system.
Improving Safety Culture
At ESS Ltd, we recognise how vital a positive safety culture is within the workplace. We create an environment that:
Encourages employees to work safely and efficiently,
Results in fewer accidents and injuries
Has less downtime
Has fewer delays or interruptions in production and with higher morale
We also focus on improving and nurturing relationships between workers and supervisors, helping everyone understand the risks and hazards associated with their job. In the end, this can lead to improved productivity and quality, fewer costs, and increased profitability.
Improving Safety Performance with Emotional Intelligence
We understand just how crucial it is to have a safe workplace, which is why we believe in Emotional Intelligence Coaching.
Research shows that individuals who have higher Emotional Intelligence are more likely to take a proactive approach than be passive when faced with a challenging situation.
With improved Emotional Intelligence, you can foster workplace collaboration and build effective relationships, key in creating a safe and secure work atmosphere.
Emotional Intelligence can also be used to create a culture of safety. By providing an environment where employees feel comfortable to speak up when they notice something unsafe, you build mutual trust and respect whereby everyone takes ownership of safety as a whole.
Finally, Emotional Intelligence Coaching can be used to improve safety leadership. Leaders who understand the importance of Emotional Intelligence in the workplace are better equipped to lead safety initiatives and create an atmosphere of trust that encourages employees to take an active role in their own safety.
ESS Ltd uses The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0), the world's leading measure of emotional intelligence, to assess individual and group Emotional Intelligence. We work with organisations to develop strategies that enable them to improve.
