ASK-EHS - Making a safer future
It almost sounds as one of the oft used lines from any commercial within our living memory – Making a safer future. Fundamentally, making our future safe is a quality and an aim for almost all of human endeavours – bonded to survival. Safety and health in many societies is integrated among the systems used by the public, every day. However, cultural threads related to safety and health are largely ignored and neglected in many cases. For the lack of a better reason and sense, we admonish lack of resources, time and sometimes even start questioning key practices. A lot of literature out there focuses on integrating a “safety culture” within the workforce. Scientifically, if we dissect such literature, the sample size of the population, its median age, and cultural background will be found missing. If we further tease out the anthropological affiliations – ‘age median’ and number of employees is all that remains.
