Safety at work must be a priority for any company manager, the person with prime responsibility for maintaining the physical integrity of the workforce.
Improve the level of safety has the advantages :
reflect the health and vigour of the company
cut costs substantially, both direct costs and overheads
reduce absenteeism rate by improving working conditions
optimize organization and operations
organise constructive discussion with trade union organisations
The GME methodology recommends the use of standards which determine the normal, smooth operating conditions.
Strict application of these standards and the rapid elimination of all technical abnormalities will reduce considerably the potential dangers, and thereby the risks of having an accident.
The prior technical work is essential but is not enough.
This must be supplemented by an improvement in human behaviour. Bad practices are responsible for over 80% of accidents !
