  • A measurement of a leader is a measurement of their followersWhat are you doing to demonstrate your commitment to safety? Let people know what your expectations are. Set project and people goals.
  • Train and grow your people. They are the next leaders within your companyHow do you manage safety and include everyoneAre you pushing your safety people to become more qualified?
  • Don’t do training to check a box. Orientation for everyone. This is your chance to communicate your expectationsDon’t waste your people’s timeGive your people the tools they need to manage their careers
  • People are our number one resource and the reason I am here. How do you encourage their participation? Do they feel comfortable telling your about near misses and / or concerns. Get to know your people and identify problems early.
  • Turn your front line supervisors into your safety advocatesMost people can be unsafe if they are good at something else. We don’t manage performance, we manage results. Measure: safety activities, participation, perceptions, behaviors, conditions.
  • The only reason people change is because they are motivated to do so. It is generally more rewarding to work in an unsafe manner. What can we do to make safety more rewarding? To change behavior we must change their threshold of risk.

  • The Cost of Safety
    The Iceberg Effect – Employer’s Costs of Workplace Accidents
    On average, for every $1 of direct costs of an accident a company will expend additional $4 in indirect costs
  • Where are you hurting people?
    Claim Distribution by Cause of Injury
    Construction Sector vs. All Industries 2000-2008
  • Example Workers Compensation Loss Data
  • Additional Company Sales Required to Recover the Cost of an Accident
    Sales figures rounded to the nearest dollar. This chart can be used to estimate the approximate amount of increased sales necessary to offset the cost of a workplace accident or injury. First, find your company’s approximate profit margin in the row across the top of the chart. Then, find the cost of an accident in the leftmost column. The required additional sales figures are shown in the appropriate box. For example, if your company has a profit margin of approximately 5 percent and had a workplace accident that cost a total of $50,000 your company must make additional sales of approximately $1,000,000 to cover the cost of that one accident.

  • One Hundred Years Ago
    On March 25, fire spread through the cramped Triangle Waist Company garment factory on the 8th, 9th and 10th floors of the Asch Building in lower Manhattan.
    Workers in the factory, many of whom were young women recently arrived from Europe, had little time or opportunity to escape.
    The rapidly spreading fire killed 146 workers.
