It's time to DECLUTTER health and safety

Discover the new evidence-based approach to streamline your health and safety systems

Health and Safety Decluttering Workshop

Clutter /ˈklʌtə/ (verb) cover or fill (something) with an untidy collection of things; (noun) a collection of things lying about in an untidy state.  


If you have anything to do with health and safety, you will know health and safety clutter.  


The stuff that gets added reactively after every audit, inspection or incident.  The stuff that ticks a box.  The stuff that isn't used, doesn't fit, or gets in the way of actual work, and the safety of that work.  


There are a few problems with clutter:

It makes health and safety bureaucratic (it's not a perception, it's a reality)

It takes the focus away from real risks and their management

It sends poor messages to your workforce and leaders about what's important

It widens the gap between work-as-imagined and work-as-done (which leads to trouble)

It is so easy to create, and almost impossible to remove.
