Along with the many external contributing causes safety teams deal with, there are also internal obstacles to face as well. Some of these internal factors the teams deal with are a lack of commitment. This involves management along with shift employees. Oftentimes a company will have team members who put production numbers over safety in an effort to increase the bottom line, not understanding that the costs of ignoring safer working conditions leads to overall costs for the company and its employees.
By building an affective team companies present themselves in a positive manner to their employees, customers, industry, and the world. By working to make the workplace safe, employees and customers are made to feel confident and valued to perform at their highest levels.
