Many health and safety managers/consultants achieve theoretical buy-in to their initiatives. However when it comes time to actually fund the program, real buy-in is lacking. All programs require a sufcient budget to be successsful, yet few safety professionals have formal training in establishing the fnancial benefts of safety.
