Integrating and Managing Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality (SHEQ) Audits

The International Labour Standards (ILO) on Occupational Safety and Health Constitution sets forth the principle that workers should be protected from sickness, disease and injury arising from their employment. According to ILO estimates, a worker dies from a work-related accident or disease every 15 seconds. Every day, some 6,300 workers die from occupational accidents or work-related diseases, amounting to more than 2.3 million deaths a year. Furthermore, over 313 million workers suffer non-fatal occupational injuries each year, or in other words 860,000 people are injured on the job every day. In addition to the tremendous human cost, estimates have identified the significant economic impact of inadequate occupational safety and health: 4 per cent of total global gross domestic product is lost annually (equivalent to US$2.8 trillion) by costs related to lost working time, interruptions in production, treatment of occupational injuries and diseases, rehabilitation and compensation. In this respect, Yet many of these tragedies are preventable through the implementation of sound prevention, reporting and inspection practices. Standards on occupational safety and health provide essential tools for governments, employers, and workers to establish such practices and to provide for maximum safety at work. Organisations with a strong and viable Health, Safety and Security culture typically experience fewer at risk behaviours, incidents, emergencies and crises; consequently, they also experience lower accident rates, lower staff turn-over, lower absenteeism but higher productivity.
