ASC's Concept of Continuous Improvement
A brief narrative of ASC’s approach to Safety & Health Management Systems
The main goal of safety and health programs is to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses and deaths, as well as the suffering & financial hardship these events can cause for workers, their families and employers. An Organization’s Safety Program provides employers & workers with a sound, flexible framework for addressing safety and health issues in diverse workplaces. Embracing the Culture of Pro-Active approach to managing safety & health, by finding and fixing hazards before they cause injury or illness is a far more effective approach.
ASC’s concept of continuous improvement is the key to establishing a workplace that can progress along the path to higher levels of safety & health compliance. ASC begins with a basic program and simple goals that will evolve with your growing company. Then, we focus on achieving those goals by monitoring performance and evaluating outcomes. For example, a study of an Ohio employer found that workers’ compensation claims fell dramatically after implementing a Safety Program & following the guidelines set forth in their Safety Plan. In the course of 1 year:
- The average number of claims decreased by 52%
- The cost per claim decreased by 80%
- Average lost time claim decreased by 87%
- Total # of claims decreased by 88%
Employers, setting the example, and working with employees to renew & enhance commitment to safety and health has been proven to encourage a cooperative atmosphere between management & workers. Employers can expect
- Improvements in quality of worker output
- Better workplace morale
- Improved recruitment and retention
- A more favorable image and reputation among customers, and the community
