With the proliferation of the internet, digital communication, and hundreds of review sites, ratings have become a critical aspect of today's world.

Look around the internet, and you’ll realize that people are rating everything. Amazon, for instance, allows buyers to evaluate all the items it has for sale. IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes valuations can vastly influence the success of a movie immediately after it's released. 

Some industries and services, such as Uber or restaurants, rely on good ratings to make a living and be successful. Look at Uber drivers: Surveys show that half of regular Uber commuters will cancel on a driver if their rating score is below 4.5 (out of 5)! For restaurants, the lowest acceptable rating (LAR) is around 3.8 out of 5. These are pretty high standards. Nevertheless, this is what they are, and that's what both Uber drivers and restaurants have to work with. 

It's for this reason why for many businesses, good ratings make for a favourable business opportunity—if they choose to see it that way. Building and maintaining an A-rating score will likely result in more customer engagement, more sales, and more growth. 

What's the Correlation Between Good Ratings and Safety?

If a restaurant repeatedly fails to meet all safety and sanitation requirements, its business will have to suffer. In many cases, that restaurant may even be forced to close its doors.

The same principle applies to a company that has a history of safety or health violations

Of course, there are some that, hoping to expedite projects or increase their short-term bottom line, will put safety procedures and protocols on the back burner. These businesses, however, are setting themselves up for a bitter disappointment down the line. It will only take a serious accident or several delays due to faulty equipment for the word to get around, and their rating to drop.

“Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair,” after all.
