The Relationship Between Safety, Sustainability and Operational Excellence

Companies tend to view safety and sustainability in isolation from one another. It’s only natural, given that safety is largely a regulatory mandate while sustainability is more often treated like a marketing campaign.

But the truth is, companies that operate unsustainably are more likely to have safety problems, just as you would expect companies with a poor safety record to have weak sustainability performance.

Ultimately, both safety and sustainability are important if companies want to achieve operational excellence. In this post, we’ll look at the connections between safety, sustainability and operational excellence, highlighting how integration of safety and sustainability efforts is an effective strategy for achieving operational excellence.
