Transferring products from A to B quickly and efficiently is the name of the game in the constantly moving world of transportation and logistics. Unfortunately, a myriad of variables means this process is rarely as easy as ABC at the best of times – and 2020 is proving more algebra than alphabet. Navigating a clear course within the sector has never been so challenging. Existing risks have been overshadowed – or in some cases accelerated – by an unprecedented global event that has brought the importance of organisational resilience into sharp focus: the COVID-19 pandemic.

Major banking institutions have been at pains to stress their determination to overhaul their ability to combat financial crime of late – following a string of high-profile corruption scandals. Unfortunately, these claims appear to be words without substance after a disturbing tale of leaked documents, dirty money, and international crime emerged – one that sounds more like something from a Netflix crime drama than the world of regulatory compliance.

The rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has completely blindsided society in 2020, with devastating effect. But was this cataclysmic event a black swan? It appears not. According to the National Risk Register – an overview of the risks of major emergencies that could impact the UK in the next five years – the threat of a pandemic was firmly on the government’s radar: “experts agree that there is a high probability of another influenza pandemic occurring, but it is impossible to forecast its exact timing or the precise nature of its impact.” In fact, of all the high consequence risks outlined in the register – from severe weather to terrorist attacks – a pandemic was considered to have the highest potential impact.
This threat wasn’t classified information reserved for senior figures in Whitehall; it had filtered down to local government level. Take Camden Council, for example, which – like other local authorities – already had information about pandemic risk fed to them by Public Health England. Camden subsequently rated a ‘pandemic flu’ as a 4/5 likelihood and 5/5 for potential damage on its risk register – proof that more high-profile risks like terror and cyber-attacks weren’t their only focus when it came to organisational resilience.

What a difference a year can make. Cast your mind back to 2019: the global defence sector was on the offensive due to budget increases and military modernisation was the plan of attack, as growing security concerns forced governments to invest heavily in new equipment. So much so that international defence expenditure was forecast to grow between 3% and 4% in 2020 to reach an estimated US$1.9 trillion – driven by increased spending in the US, Russia, China and India.

Sustainable Software Development refers to a set of principles and practices which enables a team to maintain an optimal speed in development indefinitely for the sustainability of the development team and ergo, the company.
Words without substance are often par for the course in the world of workplace health and safety (WHS). How often do we hear executives exclaim that they are planning to adopt a holistic approach to WHS that lays the foundation for a top-down and bottom-up culture, but fail to turn their good intentions into action? This commendable strategy might sound good in boardrooms and look good on paper, but all too often it lacks the structure required to do anything meaningful about it. So, how can businesses successfully ensure this common goal is converted from hollow buzzwords into a proactive WHS culture?
Achieving a top-down and bottom-up WHS culture is often easier said than done because of a major hurdle: communication. Policies and processes conceived in a boardroom without consulting the wider business – the people impacted by them each day – are typically short-sighted. Workers subsequently feel disenfranchised and unwilling to adopt them.
The challenge does not end there: even if you have perfectly crafted policies resulting from effective collaboration, without effective channels of communication the vital process of percolating your message throughout the business will be muted. Deprived of invaluable information – such as hazard reports and assessments – stakeholders at all levels of the business will remain disengaged.
Integrated WHS software has the power to bridge the gap between well-meaning ideas becoming reality, by transforming a business’s safety culture through worker engagement, participation, and leadership. It achieves this by facilitating effective communication at every stage of the risk cycle (identification, analysis, evaluation, and response) via intuitive tools, providing the structure and understanding required to achieve the holy grail: a holistic WHS approach that is driven from the top down and implemented from the bottom up.
Having broken down the barriers between workers and the boardroom, WHS software creates more visibility and transparency in the business – with the former responding by prioritising their personal safety and that of their colleagues going forward.
So how can Camms help?
Camms can help your business to embed a safety culture in which all employees are empowered to develop healthy working habits and attitudes through effective communication – creating a risk-aware workplace where robust controls are realistic safety goals are commonplace.
Having considered common industry pain points – from paper-based incident management to a failure to link incidents to risks – we developed an integrated solution that allows you to manage your WHS performance via an intuitive central point of oversight. Its key capabilities ensure employees at every level of your business can capture even the smallest incidents and near misses, which if left unaddressed can escalate – making incident reporting and risk management more accessible, accountable, trackable and resolvable. These capabilities include:
This comprehensive approach to governance, risk and compliance facilitates the transparent flow of relevant information throughout the organisation from the top-down, and the adoption of a proactive WHS culture from the bottom-up – empowering the right people to make the right decisions at the right time. It is this ability to create a structure underpinned by communication that can provide executives with the platform required to turn words into reality.
