Because you want your business to succeed, you must make certain decisions about workplace ethics. Ethics will assist your business in promoting work that is efficient, safe, and properly completed, on-time, and organized.
Humans tend to have this mentality that small problems are not real problems. We usually think things like “it’s not a big deal” or “it can’t hurt anything”. Unfortunately, those things we believe are all wrong. I’m here to tell you that the little things can become deadly in the blink of an eye. We all need to stop ignoring the little things and realize the potential dangers in “small problems”. Safety training is a great way to target those small things and outline the urgency of taking the time to fix what seems like minor issues.
The safety of ourselves and others is something we should all be concerned about, especially in the workplace. Workplace safety cannot be accomplished by just one or two people or even just company management, but it has to be a team effort to keep the work environment safe. For safety measures to be successful, they must always be a team effort. Workplace safety is something that Brad Hurtig takes very personally, and his goal is to make sure everyone in your workplace does, too.

These environments decrease productivity, increase turnover, and create a culture of chaos.
Safety training is important for a variety of reasons, but the most important reason of all is for the wellbeing of your employees. It can also save your company money and resources, while also increasing the productivity of your business. While safety training may seem like yet another training to implement and get pushed to the back-burner, it is critical for the growth and sustainability of your business.
Workplace safety is not a new concept, but it seems like we constantly need reminders of how important it is to take workplace safety seriously. Accidents in the workplace happen far too often, which brings forth the need to continually raise awareness and inform. Because of this, employers need to be ready to use new techniques and tactics to educate their employees on the importance of safety in the workplace. It’s important to give employees information in a way that they can use and remember.
Did you know that accidents in the workplace are most likely to be caused by human error? It can be all too easy for employees to get comfortable in the workplace and start making those little mistakes. After a while, the safety precautions may not seem as necessary and can get overlooked in the rush of the day. These lapses in judgment and thinking could very well make the difference between life and death. If you think that your employees may be getting comfortable, then it’s time to change up the workplace with a corporate speaker.

We live in a society where acting civilly towards each other is becoming more and more rare. The days when an individual's ingrained response was to act politely and respectful to others are gone, as rudeness becomes the norm. This new standard creates an increased financial burden on companies. Workplace ethics need to step up to solve the problem.
Can we trust any statistics that say that the incidence of workplace accidents is decreasing? How accurate are the statistics? Unfortunately, studies indicate that many employees, no matter the industry in which they are employed, are scared to report workplace accidents. The reasons may vary, but the most commonly cited reasons are that the employee is afraid that his or her manager may be angry or feel that the company will not do anything about the report.
Safety training is important for all workers. However, this is especially true for young and new workers. These individuals are prone to experiencing more accidents. The reasons behind this include their inexperience, a lack of orientation, supervision and/or training, a lack of understanding regarding their new workplace, exposure to new and more dangerous jobs, all coupled with an unwillingness to ask questions.
Companies continuously look for a new competitive edge, another method for gaining an advantage over any competitor. One such method is decreasing workplace accidents, leading to increased productivity and effectiveness. However, safety training from a corporate speaker often seems to fall on deaf ears. The employees' (and managers') attitudes are one of indifference - "I have heard all this before!" Companies increasingly turn to corporate speakers to help hone the message.
Companies and employers work hard to prevent workplace accidents. Everyone understands the immense costs such accidents can have on a company from medical costs, lower employee efficiency, to poor customer perception. However, despite the very best efforts, workplace accidents still occur.
Ethical issues continue to make headlines, especially issues related to sexual harassment and discrimination.

In other words, workplace ethics continues to be a key area that many companies need to address.
