Industrial Safety Leadership Transcends Services

Occupational safety hazards may vary from industry to industry but industrial safety leadership does not.  Improving safety culture is about the way we lead people, and people are pretty much the same regardless of industry.  A greater understanding of how to lead and motivate people in a safety culture is the best path for achieving hazard reduction and achieving safety excellence!

Our safety solutions are integrated and designed to build an ever improving safety culture for your organization that is sustainable long after we’ve transferred ownership to you.  Our clients cover the entire industrial spectrum–from oil and gas, to power and energy, to manufacturing, to agriculture and food processing, to construction and heavy equipment, to aerospace and defense, and everything else in between.

The common thread in all these industries is that they can be an extremely dangerous environment to work in if the safety climate has not reached the level of culture.  A solution is often sought in “safety by the numbers”: more regulations, more safety policies, more safety management and safety-awareness training, more safety observations conducted through behavioral-based safety programs, and more stringent emphasis on compliance.  But improving safety culture is not merely about achieving hazard reduction (though it’s a good start!).  And following and enforcing policies is no substitute for improving safety culture through industrial safety leadership.

Improving Safety Culture the Right Way

A focus on compliance or even behavioral-based safety (BBS) programs can take an organization only so far. Why? Because the problem is almost never that there are too few policies or regulations, or that employees just need to be reminded of them.  The problem is rather that people make choices they know they shouldn’t make and take risks they know they shouldn’t take.  Safety solutions force a shift in the culture, which is the only thing that will put us on the right road to achieving safety excellence.

How We Can Help

Compliance is not the answer! There is a difference between viewing safety as a core value and viewing it as just a very high priority. Most organizations truly want their workers to be safe and to go home safely to their families at the end of each day. A strong emphasis on safety compliance is foundational to achieving safety excellence, but fully reaching that goal requires the type of culture change the results from industrial safety leadership.

Right beliefs drive right behaviors; and right behaviors are what keep us safe on the job.  As important as compliance is, it is no substitute for embracing safety as a culture and a way of life.  This kind of safety management program establishes a commitment to safety as a core value — not just a high priority.

Improving Safety Culture By Enabling Employee Leadership

We are absolutely committed to improving the safety culture and performance of our client’s organizations. Our goal is to deliver “best-ever safety-performance years” through our safety management training programs. At the same time, we recognize that safety performance is simply a barometer of an organization’s safety culture. Our method develops leaders at all levels and trains them how to think and how to lead safety as a core value.

The solution lies not in compliance but in culture. It lies in a new way of thinking about safety. It lies in transferring ownership for safety to every employee and making every employee a safety leader. It lies in imparting a strong leadership presence and coaching skills to all front-line supervisors, managers and directors so that safety becomes a culture to be led rather than a regulation to be  followed.

It is only through this process that safety becomes something that is “built in” rather than “bolted on” to operations and production. Organizations that come to terms with this principle–and act on it!–soon discover the “missing link” to their existing safety programs, and the key to achieving hazard reduction and a sustainable safety culture.

Program Sustainability

While we’re building a safety culture into your organization we’re simultaneously building sustainability and reliability into our safety solutions program. The program is designed to last long after we’ve gone because internal ownership for the program is firmly established long before we leave.
