In today’s workplace we too have some difficult safety culture mountains which need to be climbed that weren’t even attempted 50 years ago. The old technology of regulations, observations and authoritarian management style will only take us part way up the mountain of a zero injury safety culture. They will not take us all the way, nor will they solve certain reality areas that require something beyond glasses and gloves and punitive discipline. The whole new world of human culture in a very diverse workplace requires new, more advanced safety technologies.
What newer tools and technologies are available for our current difficult safety mountain challenges?
- A good diagnostic of your existing safety culture to determine what terrain needs to be conquered
- A series of joint management-employee teams to address the culture crevasses that exist
- A lifestyle of safety accountabilities (fitness) for all which in turn develops a passionate culture of zero injuries and engages people from across your organization.
