Chain of Responsibility (CoR) road safety laws will be more stringent from 1 October 2018, affecting all parties in the container transport logistics chain. Meanwhile, rising costs and container trade growth demand continued productivity and business improvements. Safety and productivity are shared concerns between transport operators, stevedores, importers & exporters, freight forwarders, empty container parks…
As exporting begins to ramp up like never before in the wake of ChAFTA, the roles of transportation, freight, and logistics are updating their policies and implementing new procedures as matter of necessity. Incorporating and complying with all of the new sets of regulations involved with such a large opportunity will be challenging, meaning that risk management efforts in these areas need to be elevated as well.
Workplace health and safety can be a dull topic for employees, in most cases truth be told, but that doesn’t make it any less important. The challenge for management and compliance officers is to create engagement in this area for everyone involved, so that improving work safety becomes a regular part of a team’s goals.
In this article, we look at how companies can get employees engaged in compliance measures, to create a safer work environment.
Auditing has always been an important part of business success, but the recent and ongoing surge in regulations is making it a necessity that is more easily recognised. When auditing is internal and strictly used for company integrity, there can be more of a propensity for slacking. But when outside pressures are brought to bear, which carry the possibility of very steep fines and penalties, there is all the more reason to make sure that you’re compliant.
In this article we look at how companies can improve business and protect employees by auditing for work health and safety.
When I think of safety, the last thing that comes to mind is chaos, but that’s exactly what we’re going to talk about.
In this article we challenge traditional approaches to safety, by thinking about ‘Safety Differently’.
There seems to be no common international understanding of what comprises “sport governance”, and that’s a big problem.
An issue can’t be dealt with unless it’s defined and understood. This is painfully obvious in the current discussion about governance in sport, highlighted by the ASADA investigation into the Essendon Football Club debacle concerning sport doping. But the problem certainly isn’t confined to football, and it may be more complex than just blaming players for wanting to “juice up” their performance, as we will see.
