Process Safety, Safety Culture and Health & Safety
Organizations continuously strive to be better, safer, and more productive, but the concept of safety has never been so important for businesses as during the pandemic. In an era when Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals are of prime importance, safety in all its aspects makes for a resilient and sustainable business model.
Companies made constant structural adjustments to endure the pandemic with increasing pressure to keep workers safe. Along with better incident management, health and safety management also became one of the most pressing business priorities. That is why our report, which has explored industry trends in process safety and operational risk management for five years, was expanded to address health and safety questions. While we found a heightened focus on safety and building a culture of well-being within the workplace, we also found a deep disconnect between awareness and a well-defined roadmap to improve safety performance.
We surveyed 349 risk, process safety, and health and safety professionals from a cross-section of global industries like Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Chemicals/Petrochemicals, Energy, Construction, Professional Services and Government. We delved deep to find answers to questions like:
- What are the key workplace safety trends to watch for in 2021 and beyond?
- How has safety culture evolved?
- What are the key challenges for building a resilient safety culture? Do companies know how to overcome them?
