Bringing health and safety to life
Bonnie Cheuk details how ERM is optimising its next-generation health and safety program - using the intranet, ‘Minerva’, as a platform and collaborative Web 2.0 tools to build success.
Web 2.0 technologies are opening up new possibilities to enable your health and safety programs to come alive. By incorporating twoway communication tools and user generated content on their intranet sites, organizations can give employees more ownership over such programs. Web 2.0 can also help environmental health and safety (EHS) managers go beyond the notion that safety programs are solely about checklists and procedures. Whether you want to communicate about swine flu, new policies or reports, an interactive intranet can help EHS directors transform your ‘corporate speak’ into something ‘sticky’ and memorable to all employees. The key is to allow people to reflect and make sense of safety issues, through open and genuine online dialogue.
