AS YOU LEAD THE SAFETY CULTURE WITHIN YOUR ORGANIZATION, YOU MUST CONTINUE TO STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE
Management Support is key to a successful safety program, and personnel engagement is critical to upholding a sustainable safety culture.
Technological advancements are becoming more prevalent when it comes to increasing plant/job site operations and efficiencies. For example- protecting personnel with safer tools, more protective personal equipment, and utilizing technology in software, equipment and training are at the forefronts of many industries’ safety programs.
Creating the vision of a successful safety process begins at the top and engages all employees to embody the safety culture creating passion for all personnel to have a zero tolerance policy for unsafe acts and job hazards.
Accountability is critical from all levels of an organization to ensure that safety performance and improvements remain a daily priority. Providing workers with all the necessary training, tools, and equipment to ensure a safer workplace is a central part of building a safer environment for workers... But how often are the job materials included in pre-planning safety initiatives?
Safer materials and installation practices can eliminate unsafe situations, which greatly decrease the amount of safety incidents.
Oftentimes, safety issues are addressed after the Process Hazard Analysis and Job Safety Analysis have been completed. All job materials including insulation, must be taken into consideration when identifying all safest routes for successful and safe project completion to ensure all risk is being mitigated not only for the project, but also during daily operations.
