Local Health, Safety & Environmental Consultancy offer business owners FREE ‘Recovery Roadmap Consultation’ to support the health and wellbeing of staff ahead of embracing the new normal.
Sharon Wooller is the Director of Dava Dawn Consultancy which specialises in Health, Safety & Environmental projects. With over 20 years’ experience working with businesses of all sizes and industries, Sharon is urging local businesses to be a step ahead of the curve by preparing health and safety focused ‘road maps’ to ensure staff are ready for the changes ahead, as well as being prepared for the new normal, noting that we MUST include staff to ensure maximum success!
Sharon explained, “As eager as businesses may be to open their doors again, we must be under no illusion that the whole process will be a daunting one and full of anxieties not only for business owners but their teams and customers”
Sharon believes it is vital that to be adequately prepared, health and safety protocols must get the ‘buy in’ from the most important people – the teams working day to day in the business.
Without the backing and understanding of the team, there is risk of a disjointed workforce. Through mentorship and coaching, Dava Dawn are able to work directly with businesses to ensure the whole team understand exactly why steps are put in place, and why they will be mandatory to ensure the business succeeds.
In 2019, it was recorded that there were over half a million work-related stress and anxiety cases within the work place – this is a staggering number, and with life as we know it already having changed so much – it is vital that business owners prepare and take the time to engage with their staff going forward. Making their teams part of the recovery process will not only reduce staff anxiety but will allow them to understand the why and in turn will support the practices put in place which will ensure safety and well-being are at the forefront of the business.
Drew Hendry – Member of parliament for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey, praised Dava Dawn, “As we transition to our new normal, businesses will need to consider the safety of their staff and customers, including measures such as social distancing. This is an incredibly generous offer by Sharon and her team the expertise will provide meaningful advice to business owners on how they can increase safety in their operation and I would encourage our local business community to take up this offer of help.”
“It will be the same teamwork we have seen through this crisis, that will see us through recovery and this is an inspiring example of how local businesses can support other employers to get back on their feet as we ease out of lockdown”.
