“Through education, we can help show the importance of health & safety; both from a business and personal point of view, and as a result help to start positioning it in a much more positive light”
Hello, my name is Scott Walker, and I am the Managing Director of Sevron; an online health & safety solutions provider and proud member of USHA. I would just like to talk a little about what my company does and why I am providing our latest online solution to universities in the U.K. for free. Details can be found on the USHA website under Members Offers.
Mention health & safety to someone and you will most likely be met with a rolling of the eyes and a comment about it always getting in the way. Whilst such views may seem harmless, I believe they are in fact deadly; serving to reinforce an incorrect, negative image of health & safety in the U.K., and ultimately contributing to increasing accidents. It is this image, of health & safety being a hindrance rather than a solution; that we as a company are striving to change.
How? Well, we do this in various ways. First, our solutions are designed to require minimal training and no previous health & safety experience. Next, our solutions empower users to make a real difference by providing them with visual updates and reports that allow them to highlight the many, very real benefits good health & safety brings. Fully mobile, intuitive, and automated, our solutions also significantly reduce the time and resources needed to achieve and maintain compliance. All of this and much more combine to provide health & safety professionals with the tools, resources, and time needed to make real, demonstrable improvements to health & safety.
Ok, so if our solutions are so incredible, why am I providing them to colleges and universities for free? Well, at the risk of sounding patronising, I believe education is fundamental to what we are trying to achieve as a company. I believe that through education, we can help show the importance of health & safety; both from a business and personal point of view, and as a result help to start positioning it in a much more positive light.
