In response to feedback from end users, we’ve made some adjustments to the format of Safer Together's Learning Event Bulletins and streamlined the process for publishing these important sharing and learning tools.

Member feedback indicates that Learning Event Bulletins (LEBs) are a valuable tool for learning from unwanted events and/or threats in order to reduce the recurrence of high potential incidents.  However, feedback also indicates that we can do even better.  So, we’ve listened and made some adjustments:

  • Cover email now includes a brief description of the incident (What Happened?) so that recipients can quickly ascertain if the incident scenario is relevant to their company, without having to first download and read the LEB to find out.
  • Only one click is now required to access the LEB directly from the cover email. The Download button is also now more prominently displayed, at the top of the email.
  • The LEB template now incorporates references to and aligns with the International Oil & Gas Producers Association (IOGP) Life Saving Rules. The IOGP Life Saving Rules focus on the activities which, through rigorous data analysis, have been shown to most likely result in fatalities. Each Rule consists of an icon and simple life-saving actions that workers in the industry can take to protect themselves and their colleagues from fatalities.
  • Integration of a QR Code into the LEB template enables sharing of more detailed supporting information about a particular incident when it is available, including dynamic multimedia content.

The first of our new and improved LEBs was issued earlier this week. Take a look and see what you think.

We hope that you like the new format and that it will help you to continue to have the important conversations that prompt sharing and learning from incidents and near misses.

If you have a Learning Event Bulletin you’re willing to share, we’d love to hear from you – click here to send us the details.
