Linking Safety, Wellbeing And Productivity In Manufacturing
The manufacturing industry is not without its challenges, managing safety and productivity are just part of the industry pressures that include staff and skill shortages, high staff turnover, variable demand for products, and supply issues – the challenges are numerous.
Working in such a high-pressure industry can lead to health challenges for employees, these can either be stress-related or physical health issues. Shift workers are particularly prone to stress and sleep problems which in turn, can decrease productivity, increase absenteeism, and in serious cases, compromise safety.
Now, many in the industry are looking toward corporate wellbeing solutions to improve staff wellness. Using data-driven solutions, like ours, businesses can easily assess and pinpoint areas of concern, implement solutions such as one-to-one training, or counselling, and then proactively counteract productivity and safety challenges.
