E-safety: online uses in occupational safety

E-safety: online uses in occupational safety In today's highly competitive global market, domestic businesses are forced to cut excess costs wherever possible. Among the factors being addressed by industry is the rising costs associated with employee accidents. Accidents lead to higher workman's compensation insurance rates and increased costs from employee lost time, and general societal costs. The challenge is to create an effective safety programme that will produce and encourage a safety culture within the company. E-safety is taking advantage of current technology, effectively using online components to enhance current safety programmes, revitalising them to influence the awareness, knowledge and behaviour of workers and decrease the severity and number of work related accidents. Governmental agencies and corporate partners can streamline the online learning modules and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for greater efficiencies and compliant requirements. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Electronic Government, an International Journal Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

In today's highly competitive global market, domestic businesses are forced to cut excess costs wherever possible. Among the factors being addressed by industry is the rising costs associated with employee accidents. Accidents lead to higher workman's compensation insurance rates and increased costs from employee lost time, and general societal costs. The challenge is to create an effective safety programme that will produce and encourage a safety culture within the company. E-safety is taking advantage of current technology, effectively using online components to enhance current safety programmes, revitalising them to influence the awareness, knowledge and behaviour of workers and decrease the severity and number of work related accidents. Governmental agencies and corporate partners can streamline the online learning modules and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for greater efficiencies and compliant requirements.
