Great Safety Performance
Great Safety Performance is what we all want for our organisations. If we have people working in a safe workplace there are many benefits including greater productivity and reduced business costs. Great Safety Performance is also a safety model that can be used to explain the conditions that must exist and be measured to enable safe behaviours.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 drives employers to examine more closely how the risks associated with hazards can be managed . Ultimately workplace H&S risks are behaviour based actions that can only be managed by having all workers perform to explicit standards. If these standards are well integrated into work processes they will enhance productivity.
Effective integration of the standards for H&S are dependent on the engagement of frontline workers, collaboration between PCBUs and appropriate leadership support. All those involved in the systems of work must have a common understanding of how the organisational H&S risks are monitored and managed. Safe systems of work come about by maintaining an culture of safety which will ensure business success.
This four hour session will explain:
- the Great Safety Performance model and how safety culture is reflected in the model,
- a framework for Hazard and Risk Management that uncovers the leading performance indicators of safety performance
- engagement with Managers, 'Officers', workers and those responsible for upstream risks.
