The eternal public vs. private sector debate has (for a long time actually) reached safety standards issues. Why do you ask? The answer is simple. The discussion starts off based on the premises that the private sector and private institutions in general, are not held to the same high standard municipalities (the public sector) are. So why is that?
Most of the times, private businesses are allowed to cut corners, or regulatory organizations look the other way when it comes to safety standards for their employees, for their buildings and the entire workplace in general.
On the other hand, when it comes to the public sector, municipalities are highly standardized, and there's no taking the easy road here. And nor should it be. When it comes to the safety of your employees, private or public, it does not matter. Safety is (or at least it should be!) universal for everybody, no matter the sector of work.
Transparency is important for municipalities
Municipalities are held to the highest possible standard and often scrutinized to ensure they are keeping their employees and facilities safe. However, this is not the case with the private sector, where it seems like the norms are looser.
When dealing with the public, transparency is mandatory, because every contributor has the right to know where their tax dollars are going. But why shouldn’t private entities be as transparent as governmental institutions when it comes to the safety sector?
Shouldn't these numbers be available to everybody? Shouldn't all employees have access to see how much their employer is investing in the safety of the company's employees?
We think that this is the way of the future because everybody deserves to work in a safe environment which is being checked out on a regular basis to make sure that all the latest safety standards are being implemented.
