#13 Director Health & Safety Sentiment: A Review of the Recent AICD Director Sentiment Index
This week I examine why respondents to the latest Australian Institute of Company Directors, Director Sentiment Index survey, didn’t nominate health & safety as something that keeps them awake at night, and why they think health & safety has too much red-tape that hinders productivity.
I’ve been monitoring the Australian Institute of Company Directors’ (AICD) – Director Sentiment Index (DSI) closely over the last two years as it provides some insight into how directors perceive workplace health & safety and their general appetite for health & safety risk management.
Unfortunately, this is the 3rd consecutive report where respondents have identified the amount of ‘red-tape’ in health & safety has a negative impact on business productivity and where respondents have omitted worker health & safety as something that keeps them ‘awake at night’.
While there is continuing interest from shareholders in the health & safety performance of organisations they invest in, an acceptance that an unsafe workplace cannot be an excellent workplace, and with interest from community as to a company’s social license to operate particularly sensitive in Australia right now with the findings from Royal Commission into banking, it is unfortunate that this environment and these factors have not translated into the survey results.
I’m particularly excited for this week’s post because I have launched a YouTube Channel. For better or for worse, you will catch me there on a regular basis dishing out health & safety leadership and governance advice and insights to business leaders to assist them in leading safe & healthy work in their business.
Looking to better understand what a robust health & safety governance framework looks like?
