While all companies and businesses have different end goals, one thing that they should all have in common is the desire to build a safe(r) workplace. Not only is it an employer’s legal responsibility to do this but a work safety culture can ultimately benefit a company’s bottom line. The value of a safe workplace cannot be overstated.
