INPEX: Streamlining Safety Inductions Case Studies • It’s not uncommon in many large companies for safety induction programs to become more cluttered from one year to the next. In response to audit findings and incident investigations, there is often a tendency for companies to adopt a mindset of thinking “more is better”, resulting in more and more content being added to safety training courses, especially safety inductions. But a lengthy and voluminous induction does not necessarily improve safety outcomes.
Coho Resources: Assist and Assure – Using a Common Language to Build a Team Mentality Around Safety Case Studies • Like many other companies, Coho Resources traditionally used a range of safety management tools such as Job Hazard Analyses (JHAs) and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to do pre-job risk assessments. But after a long run of good safety performance, a sudden rise in incidents was a wake-up call that signs of complacency were beginning to emerge. This led the team at Coho Resources to question just how effective the tools they had been using to date actually were.
Enerflex: Assist and Assure – 7 Steps for Step-Change Improvement in Workforce Engagement Case Studies • Many companies use some sort of hazard identification checklist to do pre-job risk assessments. But this approach can discourage people to think for themselves because they have a tendency to rely on the checklist to identify all the potential problems. If the checklist does not address a key issue, the person using it may well overlook some of the hazards associated with carrying out the job.
Reflect, Reset and Reboot – A Safety “Pulse Check” to Build Stronger Workforce Engagement Case Studies • During times of business upheaval and disruption, it’s essential for senior leaders to check in with their employees and understand how they are feeling. Understanding, measuring, boosting and maintaining workforce engagement plays a central role in ensuring companies are not only able to adapt to rapid changes in the workplace, but also well positioned to emerge stronger.
