Quite a lot has been written and discussed about the need for safety and that it should be integrated into business thinking so that safety becomes the way of business and is regarded as a core value rather than priority. Safety is not something simple – it is more than common sense, paying attention and rule following. Safety is influenced by systems, cultures, styles of leaderships, economy, locations, history and much more. One of the hallmarks of a successful organization with a sound safety system is how it is strategically managed.
Employees must make decisions and behave in sync with the intended strategic direction for any operational category to achieve excellence. Safety is not just a standalone strategy within a business; it must be an integral part of the overall operational plan. How clear is your strategic direction and how well can employees easily see the role safety plays within it?
Without strategy the recognition of new safety results is nothing more than luck. Everyone wants excellence in safety performance and safety culture, yet they often forget excellence is not just about results. Rather, it is the confidence and ability to articulate why great results were achieved and the knowledge of how to repeat and advance year after year.
In this session by expert speaker, Terry L. Mathis, you'll understand how organizations execute and develop a strategy needed for safety excellence. You will also understand whether recognized new safety rules without strategy are more than luck. You will determine why improvement becomes obsolete due to intervention or other influences. This session will provide you the knowledge to develop and execute an effective safety excellence strategy in your organization.
