Christmas Competition–Positive Safety Initiatives
We would like to end the year with a competition that encourages people to share some of their positive safety initiatives from 2015. It doesn’t have to be as major as the announcements from GM and Laing O’Rourke that they are dumping injury metrics (more info here) but we would love to know if you have introduced any positive safety initiatives this year (or gotten rid of any negative ones)?
Some examples may be:
- Worked with everyone onsite to reduce the amount of safety paperwork by 50%
- Introduced more positive, interactive or experiential safety inductions
- Stopped talking about safety as much and started using terms like risk and well-being
- Instead of getting to work each morning and turning on the computer, grabbing a coffee and having a chat with someone on the floor and found out some interesting things about safety.
- Turned a major error into a major positive by acknowledging human fallibility and learning.
- Replaced negative performance goals (zero) with learning and promotional goals
You can post your ideas in the comments section below or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org (entries close 18th December 2015).
