Alva Group Occupational Health and Safety Services

Health & Safety – not just a legal requirement, a moral obligation

Health and safety at work must be prioritised. Several Acts from the Department of Labour, including the Occupational Health and Safety Act, are used to enforce it in workplaces. However, legal compliance is just one of the reasons your company should take health and safety seriously.

Even in the best economies, health and safety are sometimes undervalued and treated as secondary concerns. It’s a purchase motivated by resentment since many organisations, including corporations and schools, think they can just perform the bare minimum because disasters only affect “the other guy.” Health and safety, however, fall even farther down the priority list when economic troubles strike, with organisations being motivated to cut spending due to slim profit margins. Ironically, as businesses operate under pressure to meet budgets and deadlines and make compromises, increasing competition and employee stress brought on by a difficult economy can lead to elevated injury rates.

The Importance of Creating a Safety Culture

Creating an environment where your employees, students, or visitors feel safe, valued, and empowered is more than simply a legal need for health and safety compliance—it’s also morally required. It involves establishing everyday routines that enforce appropriate behaviour rather than simply checking boxes once a year.

In order to guarantee that organisations and schools are aware of both the legal requirements and the moral impact they have on an organisation and an individual, Alva Group takes the approach of guiding and coaching them. Making the best choice for everyone is made easy for an organisation when they are aware of what is expected of them, have the mindset of fostering a safe and thriving workplace, and are given instructions on how to do this.

The Benefits of a Consistent Commitment to Health and Safety Include:

Improved Office Morale

Employee morale and productivity both rise when they feel secure and at ease at work. A happy employee who feels valued and secure at work because of better working circumstances substantially influences the culture of a company.

Increased Productivity and Job Satisfaction

Productivity increases are a direct result of safer and healthier working conditions. The psychological advantage to an employee is enormous, allowing them to work in an environment that prioritises their well-being, aside from fewer injuries and related compensation claims, which are terrible for morale.

Enhanced Corporate Culture and Image

A company with a good safety culture is seen favourably by both customers and employees. More than ever, the public holds large corporations responsible for their actions, and by putting employee safety first, they enhance their reputation and attract and keep top talent.

Peace of Mind

Parents want their children to be safe and protected in schools when they enter the premises. Their peace of mind is ensured by the proper safety culture, which also fosters a collaborative and trustworthy atmosphere.

Over the years, Alva Group has devoted itself to providing our services with honesty, reliability, and a dedication to helping the communities and businesses that we have worked with. Everything we do is guided by our responsibility to make the world safer. Alva Group is committed to altering the mindset of those we interact with so that clients are aware that health and safety compliance is a must following the completion of each project, inspection, audit, or meeting.
