There has been a significant shift in the Safety Industry. Professional safety services are being sought on an as-needed basis through a third party versus organizations choosing to hire a full time in house safety professional.
On the surface, it would appear the primary reasoning behind such a decision is cost reduction. An organizations ability to not incur the costs associated with a full time employee to include ongoing skills training, salary, healthcare benefits, retirement program offerings, personal time off costs, etc.
However, in reviewing the trend deeper, we find that organizations seek to reap the benefits of having access to the cumulative knowledge and capabilities of an entire organization versus the benefits gained by hiring an individual employee.
