Get inspired and learn from each other

The Coronavirus crisis has turned the world upside down and made the topic of health and safety at work an even bigger focus. Home office, hygienic measures and pandemic planning, online instructions and psychological strain are just some of the many topics that those responsible for occupational safety will be keeping at the top of their agendas this year as well.

But what accomplishments and developments will stay with us as we enter a “New Normal”? How much has the push for digitalization changed occupational safety? And, most of all: Are we prepared to face the challenges of the future? The Safety Management Trend Report 2021 answers these questions from a variety of perspectives.

A word from the occupational safety experts

Davide Scotti

“I’d like to say that there shouldn't be any competition around health & safety also between companies that are competitors in the industry, there shouldn't be any competition around health and safety. Especially in this phase we are now living (post COVID-19, new normal or whatever you want to call it) and 2021 this it the right time to really get together and be as strongest as ever.”

“Safety managers in 2021 should be focusing on the development of human resources to be fully able to show up at work, to bring their authentic voice to work.”

“We will increasingly consider, which processes and things can be digitized. Everything that can now be done digitally and will no longer necessarily need personal contact, will continue to be done digitally after the pandemic.”

“The COVID-19 crisis also shows us that we are confronted with considerable mental stress in various professions and that occupational health and safety should therefore focus a little more on mental health.”

Andrew Sharman

“But practitioners will also have to make sure that they use this newly gained trust by their companies to broaden the dialogue. Despite bringing the pandemic issues under control, the situation offers great opportunity to also bring other safety-related topics, such as mental health and wellbeing, to the table.”

“Safety managers should focus on building convenient wellbeing procedures. The smoother the work processes are, the less unnecessary harm. Excessive workload and hurry are risk factors for burnout and those also increase the risk of injuries.”

“It will help us to achieve the following vision: To live in more human societies with connected, healthy and safe working environments with a quality OSH aimed at people, the societies and the competitiveness of companies of excellence.”
