Why is workplace safety an important part of enterprise risk management?
Workplace safety is a cornerstone of your organisation’s risk strategy. A safe work environment not only ensures compliance with regulatory mandates but also fosters a culture of trust and responsibility. Here's why prioritising safety is non-negotiable:
