The benefits of whistleblowing programs
Safety & asset Protection are critical
The most important asset to a Company are its people.
The second most important asset is its capital including equipment. Personal safety and protection of company equipment is of critical importance in any workplace for a company, employees, customers, and visitors.
The profit objective sometimes blurs communication lines and messages regarding protection of company equipment and safety get lost. Tight production timeframes can result in pre-start inspections and regular maintenance being missed.
Company equipment needs protection from damage and theft. The high cost of company equipment makes it attractive to theft and easy to on-sell. Company equipment is liable to be misused and or used for illegal or personal use.
A safe and protected report made by those who have seen or suspect misuse of company property and equipment is essential for detection. The larger a company, with locations across Australia, the more complex and difficult it is to control the work environment.
More than ever, Whistleblowing should be seen as a process by which Directors, Officers and Management can tap into a vital information provided by the eyes and ears of your organisation including those with whom business is done, i.e. vendors, suppliers, customers and visitors.
