Women in Safety

< BACK TO ALL INSIGHTS

Published: 2021

As we celebrate The World Day for Safety and Health at Work on April 28th, DSS is pleased to contribute with our report on the Top 5 Drivers to Reach Safety Excellence. Based on the views of health, safety and sustainability leaders across a range of industries and geographical regions, the report summarises the top five drivers that can help to build a more resilient and sustainable health and safety sector in challenging times.

DSS firmly believes that initiatives such as International Women’s Day held on March 8th and The World Day for Safety and Health at Work on April 28th act as crucial red-letter days to celebrate health, safety and sustainability in the workplace. It is also an opportunity to put the spotlight on how listening to a wider range of voices can help promote fresh ideas and diversity of thought.
