What are you going to STOP doing?

Many OHS management systems and programs have a major problem – they are bloated with paperwork, inefficient in their operation and filled with busywork.  These programs are often focused on the achievement of arbitrary metrics rather than improved OH&S performance. As a result, the managers of these programs are often fed-up, burned out and overwhelmed.  They are also increasingly being told – “Given the current economy, you need to do more with less.”

That is the wrong message and the wrong goal. 

To quote Peter Drucker – “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently what should not be done at all.” 

The goal should not be to do more with less – it should be to do less.
