Safety Culture Improvement

At those organizations where strong safety performance has been achieved, a need usually arises to further develop employees’ safety awareness. Managers at these sites recognize that, until everyone in the organization is highly conscious about the hazards that their actions create, there is no chance of achieving the ultimate goal of zero accidents.

A Site Manager might ask: Does everyone recognize and properly handle unsafe conditions and unsafe acts? Do employees really care about each other? Do they intervene if others make mistakes? Are safe behaviors recognized?

These training sessions (mainly conducted as part of wider safety culture improvement programs) are prepared on an entirely individual basis considering the types of activities at the site, current safety awareness levels, operating systems, and management’s goals. Often such trainings are driven in part by a Corporate expectation, and we always make sure to align the courses with Corporate standards and programs.

Sample topics may include:

  • accident and human error theory
  • hazard recognition, unsafe acts vs. unsafe behaviors
  • the importance of risk assessments, risk assessment methodologies
  • accident and incident investigation, root cause analysis
  • interpersonal communication techniques, safety intervention techniques
  • change management, motivation
