No matter how you look at it, investment in SHEQ will always pay off. Either when you are setting up requirements and procedures for maintaining quality and performance, or when you are putting up a training program to make your collegues work safer, healthier and more environmentally friendly.
Example: let’s say you get an accident with a forklift truck in the company that could have been prevented by a one day training (with certificate) for proper use of forklifts. The training wouldn’t cost more than $1.000,- but the costs of downtime and medical expenses for the victims will be tenfold or even hundredfold.
So make sure all elements of SHEQ are taken care of, dependant on the situation your company is in.
