Innovative Manufacturers' Center
Driving Manufacturing Growth and Job Creation in Central Pennsylvania
Everyone knows that safety is a business imperative. It helps to keep your people safe and your operations productive and profitable. Not everyone realizes that safety can be a significant driver for business performance. But, in order for safety performance to influence your business performance, you need a strong culture of excellence built on a shared corporate vision—and that requires continuous, organization-wide engagement.
When employees are engaged and working together towards common goals (like safety), it improves organizational culture and, ultimately, elevates business performance. In other words, the relationship between safety, culture, and performance makes an ideal catalyst for improving every area of a business.
Unfortunately, most manufacturers struggle to effectively engage their frontline employees, so safety excellence, organizational culture and business performance suffer.
