When businesses are seen as committed to health, safety and the environment, many consumers will ignore the cost of your service or product based on whether they believe they are purchasing the safe, environmentally friendly and the best product.

 

Increased Employee Engagement - When employees work for a company with a strong commitment to safety, they are more likely to work safely and be safe from accidents. They will often promote and endorse the brand they work for because they truly believe in what their business has to offer.

 

Helps to strengthen individual safety accountability - A safety oath reinforces the 'tone from the top'. When lower-level employees engage in safety with their bosses and managers, employees at all levels are more likely to embrace and commit to making a positive safety culture change.
