At a recent board meeting, our Health and Safety policy was reviewed, as one does.

One of our senior board members objected to the idea that safety should be viewed as being of EQUAL importance to financial or organisational probity.

It may surprise some here that he wanted it to be of higher importance than those other two concerns.
In fact, he said Health and Safety was a value not a goal – yes, he said it not me. In fact, I argued a little that most Health and Safety people try to get Health and Safety to taken as seriously as financial probity. Of course, I lost and now that ‘EQUAL’ phrase has been omitted.

I consider this a massive victory, which I thought I’d share with others to remind us that there are employers out there who do care.

The next review I’ll be trying for getting ‘Core Value’ in there somewhere…
