Transforming your Safety Culture


Overview

Despite the implementation of a variety of HSE initiatives, people continuously get injured at the workplace. Also, they tend to behave in a certain way when supervised and in another way when working without direct supervision. In turn, leaders tend to take an arm's length approach to employees and contract workers' safety, assuming it is the direct supervisors' responsibility to prevent incidents.

In this workshop, a different perspective on how to prevent work-place incidents will be introduced. Rather than focusing on the compliance or technical aspects of safety, we will examine the commitment and cultural side. The focus will be on ways:

  1. For the leaders and supervisors to model safe behaviours;
  2. For employees/contract workers to provide feedback to each other;
  3. For multi-level, multi-functional teams to take action and solve problems that impinge upon safety performance; and
  4. For everyone in the organisation to assume responsibility for their own safety.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Understand what leaders can do to manage and transform their organisational culture
  • Identify leadership behaviors that are critical to prevent incidents, shape a safety-oriented culture, and model self-care values

  • Define safe and at-risk behaviours that should be targeted through a safety observation process
