Compliance because your team to work in safe environment.
Engage and empower your team today.
A health and safety plan’s success mostly comes from the abilities of a company’s leaders, managers and employees. By investing in a positive health and safety culture—which is driven by leadership practices—you can help your company evolve beyond just complying because they have to, but rather because they want to. This shift doesn’t happen overnight but should be the goal of all proactive health and safety programs. Doing so will increase engagement among employees, empower them relative to their work environment and cultivate the right culture for your organisation as a whole.
Workshops and programs that focus on developing a safe culture
One way to promote a culture of safety within your organization is to provide safety training for your employees. Safety training helps employees to understand the importance of following safety protocols and procedures. It also provides them with the knowledge and skills necessary to work safely. A well-designed safety training program can help to ensure that your employees are aware of the hazards present in their work environment and know how to protect themselves from those hazards.
One way to promote a culture of safety within your organization is to provide health and safety leadership training for your supervisors and managers. Our Health and safety leadership training helps the key members of your business create and maintain a safe work environment. We achieve this by teaching them how to effectively communicate with their team about safety concerns, identify potential hazards in the workplace and develop and implement effective corrective action plans when accidents or injuries do occur.
Our health and safety leadership training is tailored to the specific needs of your organisation. The type and frequency of training will vary depending on the nature of your business, the size of your workforce and the hazards present in your work environment. However, we do recommend that all businesses should provide some form of health and safety leadership training for their supervisors and managers. When your leaders regularly participate in training programs, it helps to keep them up-to-date on any new hazards that may pop up in their workplace. Furthermore, it can also help develop the right safety culture within your business.

Our operator-driven mentoring program identifies and addresses unsafe habits
From speaking with many managers and business owners, we know that operators can fall into bad habits and shortcut safety procedures. More often than not – if an operator assesses that the likelihood of injury is low, they will forego following safety procedures that may be seen as bothersome or make their work more tiresome.
Our experts in health and safety believe that, in addition to performance management tools, our behavioural-based safety improvement program can also embed safe operator behaviour. Our operator-driven mentoring program is designed to help identify and address the root causes of unsafe bad habits. We work with your team to create and implement a corrective action plan tailored specifically for them.
Tools for measuring your behavioural-based safety culture progress
We know that it is difficult to change a culture. If you’re working to improve cultural safety in your organisation, it’s important to periodically stop and take stock of what’s working and what isn’t. We think that the most effective way to do this is through our surveys and diagnostics.
The safety culture survey is designed to assess your employees’ perceptions of safety in your workplace. Our survey covers topics such as feeling safe whilst at work, whether senior leadership is supportive and whether employees feel they have the opportunity to learn about risks and hazards at work. As with all of our projects, our survey can be tailored to the specific needs of your business.
Once we have your team’s responses, we will analyse them and provide you with a report of the findings. The report will thoroughly analyze your team’s thoughts on safety in the workplace and provide recommendations for ways to improve the safety culture within your organisation.
We also offer a safety culture diagnostic tool. This is a more in-depth assessment of safety in your workplace. Our diagnostic tool will look at factors such as safety policies and procedures, training and communication, as well as assess the overall safety climate in your organization. By looking at these things, we will be able to get a better idea of how safe your workplace is. As with our safety culture survey, we will provide you with a report of the findings and recommendations for ways to improve safety in your workplace.
