RoSPA Strategic Partnerships

RoSPA Strategic Partnerships


[gentle music] The reality is that for
almost all of us, globally, we’re actually far more
likely to be killed or injured in an accident in our own home, than we are in an accident
in our workplaces. People at risk of accidents in the home are the very young, as
in under five years old, and people at the older
end of the age spectrum, so over 65 years of age, around what’s seemingly quite
a benign, safe environment. We have a program within L’Oreal called “Safe at Work, Safe at Home” with the partnership
that we have with RoSPA and the idea being is
to spread the culture. So, safety doesn’t just
stop at the factory gate, it’s also at home. And the idea is to try and
develop the mindset of people so that when they would do a certain thing to manage a risk at work, they would think in the
same manner outside. BECKY: RoSPA work with
a lot of organizations that are absolutely at the forefront of managing workplace health and safety. Our call to them now is, what
can we do to really capitalize on all the expertise that
you have in the workplace, to mean that you can bring some
of those safety lessons home to your own families and to
your own lives outside of work. It’s really, really important
that our employees feel that we don’t stop caring about them at five o’clock when they leave work. MALCOLM: If companies take
more time to look after their employees, not only at work, but also outside of work as
well, everybody benefits. It’s not about money, it’s
not about productivity. It’s just about people. We are a small charity, with
a really, really big mission. We rely on working with organizations who absolutely buy into
our vision for a life free from serious accidental injury and that’s great because that means that they do lots of
fundraising activities that hopefully their staff really enjoy and also to get them to
share their stories with us. So, from your workplace’s point of view, making RoSPA your chosen charity is a really good way of starting some of these safety
conversations with your staff. We launched our Brighter
Beginnings appeal. Through the appeal we raise money for our Keeping Kids Safe Packs, which are full of tips and tools that parents of under fives
find really invaluable. We’ve distributed over
three and a half thousand children’s safety packs to customers and also to our employees as well. We’ve since raised hundreds
of thousands of pounds and been able to help tens of
thousands of families in need. So what our corporate
relationships enable us to do is to take something that
would have been an ideal and to make an actual lived reality. [gentle music]
