Checklist: 7 Steps to Cultivate an Efficient Safety Culture

SOURCE: Enablon

DESCRIPTION:

A recent Aberdeen study on the Environment, Health, and Safety (EH&S) side of manufacturing found that EH&S affects all levels of an organization, from plant manager to CEO. Getting buy-in from these various levels of the company is crucial, as that is where a safety culture comes in. However, this focus on safety should go beyond compliance and work to reduce manufacturing costs and increase productivity. Organizations looking to develop or improve the safety culture in their own company should:

  1. Establish standardized policies to minimize risk of business interruption due to EH&S events.
  2. Establish cross-functional teams to bring knowledge and viewpoints from multiple business areas and get everyone thinking about safety.
  3. Make your business process auditable and transparent for all functional groups. This shares needed compliance information among employees, suppliers, customers, and regulators.
  4. Automate your safety processes through a formal safety management system (SMS), which eliminates inefficient manual data collection and spreadsheet analysis.
  5. Use job hazard analysis (JHA) and incident management as the foundation for continuous improvement feedback loops.
  6. Utilize analytics to identify new trends from behavioral analysis and simplify complex decision making.
  7. This is not a one-time program. It is a continuous loop that should be driven by a continuous improvement culture and further refined and enhanced.
