Adventures in Making Safety Personal – A How-to Approach that WORKS
The workshop is designed to teach participants a proven process of engaging workers and managers in creating their own safety and the safety of others. Techniques described will be tangible, take away processes that can be used by the participants to assist them in motivating and inspiring their company staff to do safety for the right reasons and to commit to real, personal activities that create safety.
I can’t count how many times I’ve heard this silly statement “I’ve done it this way for years and not gotten hurt..it’s SAFE!”. It’s an extremely illogical statement when trying to justify taking terrible risks. Gravity doesn’t care how many times you may have worked at a height without fall protection in the past. It will either be part of your day today or not…300 times before doesn’t change physics!
We’ve all heard it. Most of us have said it and some of us have even said it more than once- “safety starts at the top!” It’s not a difficult concept to understand. If the management team at the top of the organization doesn’t place safety on their agenda and in their vision for the organization, it simply won’t get done. If this is the start of safety then let’s follow the path to the logical conclusion-where does safety finish? In other words, where does the real work of safety get done? Intention at the top of an organization will need to be supported by a lot of doing to actually make it a reality for the people performing the work.
