Environment, health and safety (EHS) programs can do more for your company than simply checking off compliance boxes. EHS can also be an integral part of your company’s culture, demonstrating to employees that their happiness, health and safety is a priority—leading to more productivity and a more proactive approach to minimizing risk. Even in low risk environments, like offices or retail settings, environment, health and safety considerations are important to a successful organization. After all, low risk doesn’t mean no risk.

Most companies have fairly distinct company cultures and integrating EHS into your company culture can be an effective way to create a sustained awareness around a safer, healthier and more productive work environment. However, intertwining EHS and company culture takes a collective effort. Allemployees need to know what it is, why it’s important and how they can contribute. According to our research, a whopping 72% of employees are largely unaware of their company’s EHS function.

On the Antea Group blog, we offer 5 tips for creating a company culture around EHS, where employees understand the value and feel compelled to participate.
