Organising - problems and challenges

It is sometimes easier to understand the issues by looking at why health and safety interventions are not so easy. In this case problems can include:

* Lack of senior management commitment;
* Production or other pressures taking priority over health and safety;
* Insufficient resources allocated;
* Poor safety culture in general.
* Poor working conditions (inducing cynicism)
* Poor industrial relations
* Lack of confidence in management's ability
* Failure to involve all (e.g. shift workers)
* Unavailability of key support staff
