What is an effective health and safety system all about?

¿De Qué Se Trata Un Sistema De Salud Y Seguridad Efectivo?

Companies’ effective health and safety programs are based on measures that ensure workers’ health by inviting them to have a personal sense of belonging to the company.

In addition, they also establish safety standards that reduce risks within the company so that workers do not suffer accidents or illnesses.

It is relevant to add that the effectiveness of these systems covers not only physical safety but also support emotional and psychological stability tools for their workers.

Companies can ensure and certify that their health and safety processes or systems are effective, applied, and fully complied with through the COR certificate.

Today it is common to expect most companies to have an active COR. Still, this certification is achieved when the employer can implement a safe and healthy work routine for all employees.

What Is An Effective Health And Safety System?

It must implement a system that seeks the safety of employees and a work routine that ensures the physical and emotional health of all. An effective health and safety system is achieved by experts who evaluate and establish the changes.

For example:

What is an effective health and safety system?

Risk agents that can cause accidents in the future, such as unbalanced shelves, mechanical malfunctions, lack of safety supplies, exposure to chemicals without adequate protection.

Create optimal work facilities to prevent injuries or complications that cause absenteeism and labor dissatisfaction.

Create a respectful, stable, and egalitarian work environment that keeps workers motivated and productive.

Minimize injuries that could be caused through optimal company equipment.

Allow for recreation to generate a psychological and emotional connection with employees.

These changes should be applied to a company that wishes to implement an effective health and safety system. However, how this is done will depend on its line of business and its policies.

What Guarantees An Effective Health And Safety System?

The COR ensures that companies are committed to a natural occupational health and safety system. It also ensures compliance.

When we say that a company has a COR certification, it could effectively implement a rigid health and safety system that complies with all the law’s stipulations.

The external audits of the companies that certify with the COR meet a demanding and consecutive standard that not every company passes.

To have a COR, you must pass, as a company, many safety, and occupational health tests, since this certificate guarantees not only the commitment to your employees but also the safety and quality you offer to your customers.

So, an adequate safety and health system guarantees two things:

The company’s commitment to safeguarding its employees, customers, and work structure with an effective safety system.

A healthy work environment for any employee, old or new. This is possible with optimal work areas, respectful treatment, physical and emotional support for all employees.

These guarantees are backed up by a system of external audits that guarantee that the employer rewards such efforts.

Ways in which the employer benefits from an effective health and safety system:

Ways In Which The Employer Benefits From An Effective Health And Safety System:

Thanks to implementing these changes within the labor policy, better performance and productivity are achieved by motivated employees and identification with the company.

Likewise, the absence of employees is reduced because they are in a pleasant work environment.

It is possible to recruit qualified personnel since professionals would like to work in a company with many benefits.

You gain status within the industry in which you work since you find significant renown that differentiates you from the competition with the certificate.

It ensures the possibility of working with more clients since it provides quality and responsibility for each project you do.

It receives compensation that depends on the performance of each company, but it can compensate the expenses incurred for the implementation of health.

What an effective health and safety system must have:

Certain specific aspects must be implemented in each system and are evaluated annually by auditors.

The quality of permanent or mobile structures,


Noise levels and protection systems,

Electrical safety,

Sanitary facilities,

First aid capability,

Optimal dissemination of emergency measures,

Risk prevention,
