  • This material is for training use only Instructor notes: Briefly cover the four general service areas. Many employers consider Oregon OSHA to be "one big intrusive regulatory box"… and they don't want anything to do with it. Ask students to think of Oregon OSHA as four boxes…three of those boxes are solely concerned with serving the public. By "partnering" with Oregon OSHA in these three areas, they will not have as much anxiety when the enforcement box comes calling. Also note the phone numbers and web site address at the bottom of the page. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 3
  • This material is for training use only Welcome! Understanding the big picture is critical to successfully managing a company’s safety and health management program (system). The primary emphasis of the workshop is to address the seven core elements of an effective safety and health system and those central issues that are critical to each element’s proper management. This course will also introduce you to the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) and the Voluntary Protection Program (STAR) To get the most out of this course, it’s important that everyone freely share their knowledge and experience with the class, so don’t hesitate. Goals Slide 1. Understand the basics of a safety management system. 2. Identify the seven core elements of an effective safety and health program. 3. Describe the key processes in each program element. Form Groups Slide Introductions Elect a group leader Select a spokesperson Recorders Page 1 Please Note: This material, or any other material used to inform employers of compliance requirements of Oregon OSHA standards through simplification of the regulations should not be considered a substitute for any provisions of the Oregon Safe Employment Act or for any standards issued by Oregon OSHA. The information in workbook is intended for classroom use only. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 4
  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: Welcome students to the class. How can you, as an employee or manager increase worker protection, cut business costs, enhance productivity, and improve employee morale? One way is by doing a better job of managing the safety and health program. No matter how sophisticated your safety and health efforts, they can always be improved. No matter how small your worksite, systematic methods for protecting workers can work for you. The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (OR-OSHA) is convinced that effective management is the key to reducing the numbers and severity of workplace injuries and illnesses. This means using proven methods to find and understand existing and potential hazards, and then either preventing or controlling those hazards. OR-OSHA's conviction is based on its experience in evaluating worksites during enforcement inspections, consultation service site visits, and Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) visits. We have learned that a direct relationship exists between effective management and low numbers and severity of injuries. We also credit good management with lower levels of work-related illness. A well-managed safety and health program prevents or controls employee exposure to toxic substances or other unhealthful conditions that can cause sickness. Goals. Briefly review the course goals Groups. Divide the class into groups. Ask group members to get acquainted, elect a group leader and spokesperson. Everyone is a recorder. You may want each group to "name" itself and write the name on a piece of card stock paper. Encourage them to be creative with their name.

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: Briefly overview the seven elements of the Oregon OSHA Safety and Health Program model. You may want to ask the following questions while conducting this overview. Don't get stuck trying to completely explain all aspects of each element here. You'll have ample opportunity to do that throughout the course. The following is a summary of each element. Element 1. COMMITMENT. A successful workplace safety and health program achieves and maintains a safe, healthful workplace. To accomplish this goal, you’ll need to demonstrate your commitment to safety and health with as much energy as you would to any other important part of your business. What you say is important, but what you do is critical to your program’s success. Showing commitment to a safe, healthful workplace links what you say with what you do. Element 2. ACCOUNTABILITY. Accountability links responsibilities to consequences. As a business owner or manager, you are responsible for making your business a successful one. “Passing the buck” isn’t an option. When Harry Truman said, “The buck stops here,” he meant that he was responsible for his decisions and he accepted the consequences that followed them. Element 3. EMPLOYEE INVOLVEMENT. Effective safety and health programs involve employees who have a stake in the program’s success. One of the best ways to involve employees is through a safety committee: a group of employees — representing labor and management that is responsible for promoting workplace safety and health. Employees can volunteer to be part of the committee or their peers can elect them. Element 4. HAZARD IDENTIFICATION. Before you can control hazards, you need to identify where they are. There are many ways to identify hazards. If your business is a small one, you may be able to walk around the workplace and look for them. On the other hand, if you work in a large manufacturing plant — say you’re the safety director — you may need to do a comprehensive workplace survey. Element 5. ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION. Despite your best efforts, you may not be able to prevent all workplace accidents and near-miss incidents. Many accidents and near-miss incidents have preventable, but underlying, causes. Examples include unenforced policies, lack of supervision, and inadequate training. By investigating all accidents and near-miss incidents, you reduce the chance that they’ll happen again. Element 6. EDUCATION and TRAINING. Your employees need to know about the workplace hazards to which they may be exposed, how to recognize the hazards, and how to control their exposure. The best way for them to gain this knowledge is through education and training. Element 7. EVALUATION. At least once a year, take time to review your program’s strengths and weaknesses. You might want to begin by gathering the information that will help you accomplish the review. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 7

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: Explain that a safety and health "program" is actually a set of interrelated processes that work together as a safety management "system". Discuss the inputs. Review the various processes. Students may come up with others. Cover the outputs. In an effective safety management system, what is the role and purpose of the safety director? Role - Says who we are. Consultant, communicator, advisor, advocate, educator, etc. Purpose - Says what we intend to do. Identify hazards, recommend changes, help management do safety, educate. Function - unintentional outcome. Safety Committee may intend to help, but function to hurt the S&H program if they are not properly educated/trained. “Every system is designed perfectly to produce what it’s producing” Another way to put this is…Garbage in - garbage out. This principle is extremely important. If your safety program suffers from a high accident rate, it's because resources and/or one or more processes are flawed. They might not be adequately written or carried out. You can't just blame accidents on a lack of common sense. What might be the result if a safety plan is poorly written or not effectively implemented? Either way, the outcomes are not going to be what you desired. If the plan is effectively developed, yet poorly carried out, the outcomes are less than desired. If the written plan is flawed, but perfectly carried out, outcomes will, again, not be desired. Where do we look for clues that safety system design and/or implementation are flawed? You'll find clues in the outcomes of the system…the conditions, behaviors, activities that are general in nature. If you discover an isolated condition, or incident, the system may not have failed. If the conditions or behaviors are common, or if a condition or behavior is repeated, you can suspect system failures. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 9

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: This can be a very revealing exercise. Employers "do" safety for a number of reasons. • They may primarily be most concerned about fulfilling their legal obligation to comply with OSHA law. • They may be more concerned about fulfilling their fiscal obligations to stakeholders through the prudent conduct of business…at a profit or within budget. • The employer may primarily concerned about fulfilling their social obligations to employees and community by keeping their corporate "family" safe and healthful. • More than likely, the employer will be concerned about all these obligations, but, depending on where the most perceived pressure to perform originates, will emphasize one of them. Ask each student to place a check mark next to the reason they believe their employer makes a commitment to safety. Remember, you may be "preaching to the choir." Don't be surprised if most students make claim their employer is most concerned with the social obligation. Tally up the check marks and make a bar graph to discover the class results of the survey. What is commitment? Expression of leadership. Time, money, concern/communications = TMC Employers and employees work together to make safety and health a priority. Employer and employee involvement and communication on workplace safety management commitment and employee involvement? What management behaviors indicate top management commitment? Every proactive activity that takes time, money. Selfless acts on the part of the employer. What can we do to get top management commitment? Provide useful information so that they “see” how important a proactive safety and health program is. Many ways to provide useful information: quality recommendations, educating up, bringing in experts, etc. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 11

Medical expenses include doctor fees, hospital charges, the cost of medicines, future medical costs, and ambulance, helicopter, and other emergency medical services. Indirect - Uninsured, hidden Costs - Out of pocket Oregon estimated average = $18,000 The NSC defines "employer costs" as the uninsured costs incurred by employers and represents the money value of time lost by uninjured workers. It includes time spent investigating and reporting injuries, giving first aid, production slowdowns, training of replacement workers, and extra cost of overtime for uninjured workers.

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: Define and discuss direct, indirect and unknown costs. Note the average cost moves slightly above and below $10,000 from year to year. In Oregon, it cost around $300,000 to close a fatality claim. Review the National Safety Council (NSC) stats. Note also that the more "capital intensive" the industry, the higher the average ratio. These are only rough estimates…may vary greatly. Ref. www.nsc.org for more info on this. It's also interesting to note that the more "capital intensive" a business is, the higher the ratio between direct and indirect costs is likely to be. For instance, if there is a fatality at a large manufacturing plant (large capital investment) that results in a production halt, the company may realize huge indirect costs. Labor intensive business may realize ratios of 1:2 to 1:10. Capital intensive business may realize ratios of 1:5 to 1:50 or higher. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 13

Peter Block, Flawless Consulting Page 8 OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide Reactive - Proactive 18
  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: Ask the class to contrast proactive and reactive safety strategies and the unintended messages management sends when they adopt one or the other. Proactive programs: Accountability - Recognition/Discipline; Safety Committee - when effective; Training - when done at all levels; Wellness; Incentive programs - appropriate behaviors; Accident investigation - when root causes are effectively corrected. Examples will include all of the OSHA mandated programs like hazard communication, confined space, ppe, safety committees, training, discipline, recognition programs that reward desired behaviors, etc. These processes initiate before an injury and their purpose is to prevent an injury or illness. Proactive programs result in: Safe behaviors - improved results; hazards corrected, programs improved, fewer accidents; Greater understanding, improved behaviors; Physical fitness, higher morale; More frequent appropriate behaviors; Fewer accidents Reactive programs: Examples will include accident investigation if it only places blame and corrects surface causes. Others include early return to work, emergency first aid, discipline (if tied to accidents), recognition programs ( if they reward accident-free work are reactive as they are likely to produce pressures to withhold injury reports…the actual behavior being rewarded). Emphasis in reactive programs only may result in: reduced per-injury costs; higher incidence of blaming, increased number of accidents, lower morale, lower productivity. Flawless consulting. You can mention this briefly as some students may not be familiar with the terms "line" and "staff." OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 19
  • This material is for training use only 2. Accountability Six essential elements of an effective accountability system 1. Established formal standards of behavior and performance. Slide • Programs, Policies, Plans, Processes, Procedures, Practices (the Six P's) 2. Resources provided to meet those standards. • Physical = tools, equipment, materials, workstations, facilities • Psychosocial = education, training, scheduling, culture 3. An effective system of measurement. • Behaviors are observed and quantified • Behaviors are detected and corrected before an injury • Informal and formal observation procedures are used 4. Application of effective consequences. • Soon - certain - significant - sincere • Must change behavior in the desired direction 5. Appropriate application of discipline. • • • • Discipline is based on fact not feeling Consistent throughout the organization: top to bottom and laterally Applied only only after it's determined management has met obligations to employee Appropriate to the severity of the infraction and impact on the organization 6. Evaluation of the accountability system. • • • • Examine the first five elements Mandated by OAR 437, Division 1, Rule 765(6)(f) Analysis/evaluation headed up by Safety committee, safety coordinator Improvements headed up by line management ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________ Page 9 OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide - Accountability System 20
  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: Element one: These standards represent inputs to the system and also antecedents/activators of behavior. Each employee must have a clear understanding of employer expectations, policies, rules. Element two: Physical resources: The employer is accountable to the law to provide resources. Emphasize the idea that the employer takes on a legal obligation to each employee to make sure they are provided with safe tools, equipment, etc. Psychosocial support: Discuss each of these points. The employer also has an obligation to provide a "place of employment" free from known hazards….the broad definition of this requirement includes the psychosocial environment. Psycho - Those workplace factors that affect each employee's knowledge, feelings, and skills related to working safe. Social - How does the social climate or culture support/hinder safe work. What leadership and management styles affect the climate/culture? Element three: Discuss each of these points. Measurement may occur through informal/formal observation. Usually the supervisor can do this daily. Other procedures are more formal…periodic appraisals. It's important that whatever procedures are used, they are objective, based on fact, not feeling, and they should measure behaviors over which employees have control such as complying with safety rules, reporting injuries and hazards, warning others and other required behaviors. It's important that the results of these measurements be used to fine-tune the safety management system. Element four: Effective consequences will increase compliance behaviors. Discipline should occur soon after it's determined that it's justified. It should be based on facts, not feeling. That means the supervisor must be able to state what the employee did/didn't do and the safety rule policy that was violated. Discipline needs to be meaningful to the employee…"it must make the point." If the discipline is not perceived as significant, it will not affect/change behaviors. Discipline should be administered to impress upon the employee that the supervisor is concerned for the employee's safety, not because it's just policy. The employee is important…the company can't afford him or her getting injured. The supervisor should not be administering discipline just to stay out of trouble him or herself. The motive should be sincere, expressing genuine disapproval for the good of the employee and company. Element five: The processes within this element may be the most difficult to successfully carry out unless they are clearly spelled out in writing and insisted upon. For instance, when an accident investigation is performed, the investigator may have the time to conduct interviews and uncover surface causes, but sometimes they don't have the time or the expertise to determine the underlying safety management system causes. In this case, the process should include the safety committee and/or coordinator in uncovering root causes. If root causes are uncovered, then the question of discipline is moot because the system failed the employee. The question of discipline may take weeks to determine. Disciplining immediately after an accident ties the discipline to getting hurt. Careful analysis ties it to behaviors and is more likely to result in a perception of fairness. Rule violations that could result in serious physical harm or fatality may qualify for more significant consequences such as immediate suspension or termination. It's appropriate that supervisors and managers who violate safety rules receive more significant negative consequences because the behavior has the effect of revising a perceived mandatory rule into a discretionary guideline, sets poor leadership example, and legally "rewrites" the rule which places the employer in greater jeopardy of litigation should an accident occur. Element six: The safety committee, by law, is authorized to evaluate the supervisor and employee accountability system. This element (evaluation) should be included in every safety management system.

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: These activities and behaviors are very general summaries of more specific accountabilities detailed in OR OSHA rules. Managers are accountable to the law to comply with OROSHA law, provide resources, adequate training and supervision, and enforce safety rules. Employees must comply with the employer's safety standards, report injuries immediately, and report hazards as soon as possible. Reporting hazards includes warning coworkers about hazards and unsafe behaviors. Notice that the employer is accountable to the law and the employee is accountable primarily to the employer. The employer is obligated to the employee to carry out accountabilities. The employee is obligated to everyone in the company to carry out their accountabilities. Why does the employer have more accountabilities than the employee? Is that fair? Yes, it's fair because the employer controls all aspects of the workplace while the worker generally (but not always) controls only his or her personal behavior. We need to be held accountable only for those responsibilities over which we have control. So, the first question we need to ask when considering discipline is to ask if the person had control over the performance being measured. How are employees held accountable in your workplace? Ask for class input here. When is a supervisor justified in disciplining? Before pointing the finger of blame, make sure all obligations to the employee have been fulfilled. Has the supervisor provided resources…safe employment and a safe place of employment? Has the supervisor provided adequate training, supervision (defined as detecting and correcting hazards before they injure), and enforcement.

Have groups discuss this question among themselves. Make sure they are recording what they discuss in the workbook. Choose one of the above ideas and discuss those methods and procedures that help ensure its success. Ask each group to describe to the class one of the ideas they discussed. The best worker safety and health protection occurs where everyone at the worksite shares responsibility for protection. For that to happen, all employees must know they are helping to shape the program. Employees at all levels should be actively involved in finding and correcting safety and health problems. This does not mean the employer gives up responsibility and authority. The Occupational Safety and Health Act places responsibility for worker protection from occupational hazards squarely on the employer. The wise employer, however, uses employees' unique knowledge and experience to help find problems and resolve them successfully. OSHA Guidelines recommend that employers: Provide for and encourage employee involvement in the structure and operation of the program and in decisions that affect their safety and health, so that they will commit their insight and energy to achieving the safety and health program's goal and objectives.

They need to help the employer develop a culture that supports active participation in the safety committee. Some companies let it be known that career advancement is enhanced by involvement. Other companies give sc members a monthly bonus for active participation. There are many ways to develop positive consequences. Remember, the members define what are positive and negative consequences. What can the safety committee do to help the employer manage safety programs? They can, in addition to identifying and correcting hazards, critically evaluate and help the employer improve the safety management system…improving written plans, processes, procedures, etc. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 27

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: What is a "hazard?" A hazard is an "unsafe condition or practice that could cause injury or illness to an employee and it's preventable." What are the advantages of conducting hazard analysis vs. accident investigation? There's always less hurt to the employee and expense to the employer. The injury is mitigated and injury claim costs are decreased. When management is able to effectively detect and correct hazardous conditions and unsafe behaviors/practices before an injury occurs (this is the definition of adequate supervision), it sends messages to employees that management is competent and they care. The first message validates the employer's ability to manage and the second message addresses leadership. If the employer relies on accident investigation, unintended and possibly invalid, but everpresent messages are sent…management is incompetent and doesn't care….they fail to protect employees because they don't care…. Conducting hazard analysis is sound management policy. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 29

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: What are the four categories of hazards in the workplace? Ask class for answers, or if time does not allow, just give them the answers and ask for examples. Materials, equipment (includes machinery), environment, and people. It's important to note that all four categories may be seen as hazardous conditions. People can also engage in unsafe behaviors. Any time an employee is distracted, mentally or physically incapable, or is otherwise unable to safely perform, they may be considered hazardous conditions…"states of being." Hazardous conditions or unsafe work practices: Which results in more accidents? Hazardous condition 3% Unsafe behaviors 95% Uncontrolled acts "acts of God" 2% Have the class analyze the photos in the workbook and describe hazardous conditions and unsafe behaviors they see. It's important to note that most conditions and behaviors work together in some way to cause an accident. There's usually a link. For instance, a maintenance person may remove a guard to perform maintenance. When maintenance is complete, the guard may not be replaced. An unsafe behavior/practice creates a hazardous condition and a danger zone. Later, another employee may engage in horseplay in the danger zone and is injured.

Management Controls - Remove or reduce the exposure • Reduce the duration, frequency, and severity of exposure to hazards primarily through (1) changes and work procedures and practices, and (2) scheduling, job rotation, breaks. • Major weakness: Relies on (1) appropriate design and implementation of controls and (2) appropriate employee behavior. ________________________________________________________________________ _ ________________________________________________________________________ _ ________________________________________________________________________ _ 3.

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: Review each of the control strategies here. Ask the class to give examples of each in their workplaces. Hazard Prevention and Control Appropriate controls. In designing a program of prevention and control, the ideal choice always is prevention of employee exposure to a hazard. This means removing the hazard or preventing exposure through engineering controls. Where complete removal of the hazard is not feasible, the next best choice is complete enclosure. Where complete enclosure is not feasible, a combination of partial enclosure, changing procedures and work schedules through effective management controls is the next best choice. To supplement these controls, you may need to use personal protective equipment (PPE) or temporary interim measures. This hierarchy of controls is subject to some variation. There may be situations, for example, where PPE is the primary means of hazard control, as in oxygen-deficient environments where respirators are essential. Because every workplace has its unique characteristics, a careful hazard analysis is a critical to decisions about controls. Safe work practices and PPE place special responsibilities on the employees who use them. Employees should be trained (and OSHA standards require that you provide training in specified situations) to understand why they need these protections and how they can use these methods to protect themselves and others. You should stress the seriousness of these protections in every possible way, including, when necessary, the use of fair and consistent discipline. Preventive maintenance. A good equipment maintenance program can keep engineering control systems working as intended and can prevent ordinary non-hazardous equipment from becoming hazardous. Employee reports of hazards. A successful safety and health program finds and corrects problems before any harm is done. Having many extra pairs of eyes to help you uncover hazards is the best wayto do this. Provide one or more systems for employees to alert you to hazards, and guarantee that employees who report hazards will be supported to do so. Employees will need to see timely and appropriate responses to their reports. These responses are visible evidence of management's commitment to worker safety and health and your desire for meaningful employee involvement. Accident/incident investigation. Investigating accidents and incidents (these terms are defined in Chapter IX) presents another opportunity to find hazards and design prevention and controls. For each accident, there usually are several steps that must be taken to prevent future occurrences. Injury and illness trend analysis. It is useful to review injuries and illnesses that have occurred over a period of time, including those illnesses that do not appear to be occupationally related. Such an analysis may reveal patterns or clusters that suggest common worksite causes or origins not apparent when the cases first were recorded.

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: What is an “accident?” An accident is an unplanned, unwanted, unexpected event that causes an injury to an employee. Accidents aren't always unplanned. Major construction projects plan for a number of injuries and fatalities during the construction as part of the cost of doing business. Employers may do the same. Why do we “investigate” accidents? We "investigate" to fix the system, not the blame. It's important that we take a close look at the term "investigate." What do you feel when you hear this word? What kind of reaction does it produce? …positive or negative. Most students will express that the term causes a negative reaction. Encourage students to think about changing the language in written and oral communications to incident/accident "analysis" rather than "investigation" to better emphasize the idea that the purpose of the process is to fix system weaknesses (root causes), not to place blame (personal flaws). How does your perception of a particular hazard change with daily exposure to that hazard? The longer we are exposed to a given hazard, the more comfortable we become and the less it's perceived as a hazard. Eventually, we don't pay much attention to it, and that's when we get hurt. You can use an example of an unguarded table saw. The first time we use it, we're quite concerned about the blade and are careful when we cut wood. However, days, weeks, months, later we might be quite comfortable using the saw. We don't consider it to be a "big deal". Our mind is able to wonder while we work…we don't pay attention…and we get distracted more easily….increasing the probability of an accident. When an employee engages in unsafe behavior, it's usually not the first time they done so. These odds statistics are quite old and vary from among a number of studies. The most famous study was conducted by W.H. Heinrich and published in 1931 in his text Industrial Accident Prevention (currently out of print). A study was conducted in 1984 at Procter and Gambles Port Ivory plant on Staten Island, N.Y. that shows a remarkable relationship ship to Heinrich's original pyramid. The Port Ivory study reviewed 1,062 incidents that occurred in the plant from April 82 to April 84. They were classified according to severity of outcome, a method similar to what Heinrich had done.

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: Why are some accident reports ineffective? They evaluate only for surface causes. They do not uncover root causes. Long term fixes that prevent similar accidents do not get implemented. Why might it be dangerous to assume someone has "common sense"? There is no such thing as "common sense" because our own "personal sense" is something quite unique…based on our unique education and experience. One person's good sense can be another person's nonsense. When lack of "common sense" is used as an excuse for an accident, it quickly places all "blame" on the employee. Consequently, no analysis or evaluation to uncover system weaknesses occurs. Be ready when accidents happen Briefly cover the steps in developing a written accident investigation plan. If a well-written plan is not developed then people may be unsure about their responsibilities when a serious injury occurs. Consequently, the likelihood is greater that "blame" may surface into the process. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 39

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: The six-step process There are three general phases in the accident investigation process. In the first phase, the accident scene is secured, if necessary, and facts are gathered at the scene and other locations about what happened. In the second phase, the sequence of events is developed and each event is analyzed to see if there are hazardous conditions or unsafe/inappropriate acts that occurred. In the third phase, we take what we've learned to develop corrective actions and safety management system improvements. Finally we write the report. OR-OSHA Course 102 has more information on this process. Three levels of analysis The initial analysis is conducted to determine the direct cause of injury. Next, event analysis conducted to determine hazardous conditions and unsafe behaviors that may have directly caused or contributed to the accident. Finally, the conditions and behaviors are analyzed to determine if safety management system weaknesses contributed in some way to the accident.

  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: Briefly cover the bullets for education, training, and experience. Other info: Can your employees explain every existing and potential hazard to which they are exposed? Do they know how to protect themselves and their coworkers from these hazards? Can they tell you precisely what they must do in the event of a fire or other emergency? Training can help your employees develop the knowledge and skills they need to understand workplace hazards and protect themselves. OR-OSHA considers safety and health training vital to every workplace. Safety and health education is most effective when integrated into your company's overall training in performance requirements and job practices. It can range from the simple precautionary warnings given new workers when they are first shown the job to more elaborate, formalized instruction. Give examples of effective safety training. Ask class to give examples of the types of safety training they conduct. More info: SOME COMMON TYPES OF SPECIALIZED TRAINING Safety and Health Training for Managers. A good safety and health program is impossible without support and understanding from the top. Training managers in their responsibilities is necessary to ensure their continuing support and understanding. Safety and Health Training for Supervisors. All employees should be involved in matters of safety and health. However, workers often are promoted to supervisory positions without adequate knowledge of how to train other employees in the safe and proper way to do the job. Job Orientation. The format and extent of orientation training will depend on the complexity of hazards and the work practices needed to control them. Vehicular Safety. All workers operating a motor vehicle on the job should be trained in its safe operation. Training in safe loading and unloading practices, safe speed in relation to varying conditions, and proper vehicle maintenance has been found helpful in reducing work-related vehicle injuries. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Supervisors and workers alike must be taught the proper selection, use, and maintenance of PPE. Since PPE sometimes can be cumbersome, employees may need to be motivated to wear it in every situation where protection is necessary. Emergency Response. Train your employees to respond to emergency situations. Every employee at every worksite needs to understand emergency telephone numbers and who may use them, emergency exits and how they are marked, evacuation routes, and signals that alert employees to the need to evacuate. Periodic Safety and Health Training. At some worksites, complex work practices are necessary to control hazards. Elsewhere, occupational injuries and illness are common. At such sites, it is especially important that employees receive periodic safety and health training to refresh their memories and to teach new methods of control.

Here are some suggestions for enhancing the success of your safety and health training: • Prepare employees for training by putting them at ease. Recruit employees who show signs of being good trainers of their coworkers. • Prepare them to conduct this peer training. • Explain the job or training topic. Determine how much your employees already know about it. • Boost your employees' interest in training by helping them understand its benefits. For example, training can reduce injuries and near-misses, and training can enhance productivity and overall job performance, thereby improving the chance for advancement and other rewards. • Pace the instruction to the trainees' learning speed. Present the material clearly and patiently. • Present only as much information in one session as your employees can master. Have your employees perform each step of the operation and repeat your instructions and explanations. Have them repeat a task until you are satisfied they know how to do it. • Encourage employees to help each other by dividing the group into teacher/learner pairs or practice pairs. • Check frequently for correct performance during the initial practice period. Taper off on surveillance as the trainees become more proficient. • Encourage your employees to build the new skill into the way they work best, but caution them not to change the newly learned procedure without first checking with you or their supervisor.

Plan Evaluation Slide • Last and first phase of planning cycle • Identify, analyze, evaluate all elements of the program Identify - “Is it present?” Yes/No. Inspect. Analyze - “What does the policy, plan, procedure look like?” Evaluate - Rate effectiveness. “Is it effective?” Judgment call. • Use outside experts • Primary safety committee responsibility - evaluate the safety and health program OAR 437- Division 1, Rule 0765(6) Hazard assessment and control. • (d)(A) The safety committee shall assist the employer in evaluating the employer's accident and illness prevention program, and shall make written recommendations to improve the program where applicable. • (f) Accountability. The safety committee shall evaluate the employer's accountability system and make recommendations to implement supervisor and employee accountability for safety and health. • Establish procedures for change - an action plan • Plan carefully - test it - study the results - adopt, abandon or revise • Measure activity and results • Supervisor, manager behaviors, performance • Employee behaviors, performance • Make effective recommendations • Use facts and figures, not subjective hunches • Contrast benefits of investment with high costs of inaction Page 24 OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 50
  • This material is for training use only Instructor Notes: Discuss each of the bullet items on this page. Ask class if they currently have some kind of safety management system process that involves the safety committee in any way. More info: EVALUATING YOUR SAFETY AND HEALTH PROGRAM  The scenario: Your safety and health program is in place. You have set your goal for the year and clearly stated the objectives, procedures, and activities necessary to meet that goal. Responsibilities have been defined and clearly assigned. Adequate authority and resources have been allocated. People have been trained in their safety and health program roles, and they understand the consequences of failing to perform their assignments. The evaluation process is more than an inspection or an audit. Inspections are necessary to look at the facility, the process, and the individual jobs in order to identify and then to eliminate or control any hazards that may exist. Audits focus on program activities and seek to determine whether specific objectives have been met. For example, if you are assessing employee participation by looking at the activities of the safety committee, you will want to know if that committee met at the intervals specified, and if most of the members attended each meeting. 1. Documentation Checking documentation is a standard audit technique. It is particularly useful for understanding whether the tracking of hazards to correction is effective. It can also be used to determine the quality of certain activities, such as self-inspections or routine hazard analysis. 2. Employee Interviews Talking to randomly selected employees at all levels will provide a good indication of the quality of employee training and of employee perceptions of the program. If safety and health training is effective, employees will be able to tell you about the hazards they work with and how they protect themselves and others by keeping those hazards controlled. Every employee should also be able to say precisely what he or she is expected to do as part of the program. And all employees should know where to go and the route to follow in an emergency. 3. Site Conditions and Root Causes of Hazards Examining the conditions of the workplace can reveal existing hazards. But it can also provide information about the breakdown of those management systems meant to prevent or control these hazards. Looking at conditions and practices is a well established technique for assessing the effectiveness of safety and health programs. For example, let's say that in areas where PPE is required, you see large and understandable signs communicating this requirement and all employees -- with no exceptions -wearing equipment properly. You have obtained valuable visual evidence that the PPE program is working. Sample checklist on following pages: Refer to and discuss the sample checklist. Ask the class if any of the students employ similar checklists for evaluating the safety management system. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 51

  • This material is for training use only Strategic Map for Change and Continuous Improvement for Safety and Health The following strategic map describes major processes and milestones that need to be implemented to successfully implement a change process for safety and health. This strategy is intended to help you focus on the process rather than on individual tasks. It is common for most sites to have a tendency to focus on the accomplishment of tasks, i.e., to train everyone on a particular concern or topic or implement a new procedure for incident investigations. Sites that maintain their focus on the larger process are far more successful. They can see the "forest" from the "trees" and thus can make mid-course adjustments as needed. They never lose sight of their intended goals, and tend not to get distracted or allow obstacles to interfere with their mission. The process itself will take care of the task implementation and ensure that the appropriate resources are provided and priorities are set. Process Implementation Strategy: 1.Obtain Top Management "Buy-in" - This is the very first step that needs to be accomplished. Top managers must be on board. If they are not, safety and health will compete against core business issues such as production and profitability, a battle that will almost always be lost. Management needs to understand the need for change and be willing to support it. Showing the costs to the organization in terms of dollars (direct and indirect costs of accidents) that are being lost, and the organizational costs (fear, lack of trust, feeling of being used, etc) can be compelling reasons for doing something different. Because losses due to accidents are bottom line costs to the organization, controlling these will more than pay for the needed changes. In addition, as you are successful you will eliminate organizational barriers such as fear and lack of trust – issues that typically get in the way of all of the organization's goals. A safety and health together due to the people place a high that are truly being change process can very effectively drive change and bring an organization ability to get buy-in from all levels. This stems from the fact that most personal value on their own safety. They view the change efforts as things done for them. 2.Continue Building "Buy-in" for the needed changes by building an alliance or partnership between management, your union (if one exists), and employees. A compelling reason for the change must be spelled out to everyone. People have to understand WHY they are being asked to change what they normally do and what it will look like when they are successful. This needs to be done upfront. If people get wind that something "is going down" and haven’t been formally told anything, they will tend to naturally resist and opt out. Identify key personnel to champion the change. These people must be visible and are the ones to articulate the reasons for the changes. The reasons need to be compelling and motivational. People frequently respond when they realize how many of their co-workers or subordinates are being injured and that they may be next. Management and supervisors also respond when they see the money being lost due to accidents and they realize that their actions toward safety truly influence and define the employee safety culture. 3.Build Trust - Trusting is a critical part of accepting change and management needs to know that this is the bigger picture, outside of all the details. Trust will occur as different levels within the organization work together and begin to see success. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 59
  • This material is for training use only 4.Conduct Self Assessments/Bench Marking - In order to get where you want to go, it is essential to know where you are starting from. You can use a variety of self-audit mechanisms to compare your site processes with other recognized models of excellence such as Star VPP sites. Visiting other sites to gain first hand information is also invaluable. You can use perception surveys to measure the strengths and weaknesses of your site safety culture. These surveys can give you data from various viewpoints within the organization. For instance, you can measure differences in employees' and managers' perceptions on various issues. This is an excellent way to determine whether alignment issues exist and, if so, what they are. At this stage, it is important to look at issues that surface as symptoms of larger system failures. For example, ask what major system failed to detect the unguarded machine, or why the system failed to notice that incident investigations are not being performed on time, or if workers are being blamed for the failures. Your greatest level of success will come when these larger system failures are recognized and addressed. 5.Initial Training of management-supervisory staff, union leadership (if present), and safety and health committee members, and a representative number of hourly employees. This may include both safety and health training and any needed management, team building, hazard recognition, or communication training. This provides you with a core group of people to draw upon as resources and also gets key personnel on board with needed changes. 6.Establish a Steering Committee made up of management, employees, union (if present), and safety staff. This group's purpose is to facilitate, support, and direct the change processes. This will provide overall guidance and direction and avoid duplication of efforts. To be effective, the group must have the authority to get things done. 7.Develop Site Safety Vision, key policies, goals, measures, and strategic and operational plans. These policies provide guidance and serve as a check-in that can be used to ask yourself if the decision you’re about to make supports or detracts from your intended safety and health improvement process. 8.Align the Organization by establishing a shared vision of safety and health goals and objectives versus production. Upper management must be willing to support by providing resources (time) and holding managers and supervisors accountable for doing the same. The entire management and supervisory staff needs to set the example and lead the change. It's more about leadership than management. 9.Define Specific Roles and responsibilities for safety and health at all levels of the organization. Safety and health must be viewed as everyone's responsibility. Clearly spell out how the organization deals with competing pressures and priorities, i.e., production versus safety and health. 10.Develop a System of Accountability for all levels of the organization. Everyone must play by the same rules and be held accountable for their areas of responsibility. The sign of a strong culture is when the individuals hold themselves accountable. OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 60
  • This material is for training use only 11.Develop Measures and an ongoing measurement and feedback system. Drive the system with upstream activity measures that encourage positive change. Examples include: the number of hazards reported or corrected, numbers of inspections, number of equipment checks, Job Safety Analysis (JSA), prestart-up reviews conducted, etc. While it is always nice to know what the bottom line performance is, i.e., accident rates, overemphasis on rates and using them to drive the system typically only drives accident reporting under the table. It is all too easy to manipulate accident rates, which will only result in risk issues remaining unresolved and a probability for future, more serious events to occur. 12.Develop Policies for Recognition, rewards, incentives, and ceremonies. Reward employees for doing the right things and encourage participation in the upstream activities. Continually reevaluate these policies to ensure their effectiveness and to ensure that they do not become entitlement programs. 13.Awareness Training and Kick-off for all employees. It's not enough for a part of the organization to be involved and know about the change effort. The entire site needs to know and be involved in some manner. A kick-off celebration can be used to announce "It’s a new day," and seek buy-in for any new procedures and programs. 14.Implement Process Changes via involvement of management, union (if one is present) and employees using a "Plan To Act" process such as Total Quality Management (TQM). 15.Continually Measure performance, Communicate Results and Celebrate Successes. Publicizing results is very important to sustaining efforts and keeping everyone motivated. Everyone needs to be updated throughout the process. Progress reports during normal shift meetings (allowing time for comments back to the steering committee) opens communications, but also allows for input. Everyone needs to have a voice, otherwise, they will be reluctant to buy-in. A system can be as simple as using current meetings, a bulletin board, or a comment box. 16.On-going Support - Reinforcement, feedback, reassessment, mid-course corrections, and ongoing training is vital to sustaining continuous improvement OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 61
  • This material is for training use only Management Leadership What is management leadership in safety and health? Management demonstrates leadership by providing the resources, motivation, priorities, and accountability for ensuring the safety and health of its workforce. This leadership involves setting up systems to ensure continuous improvement and maintaining a health and safety focus while attending to production concerns. Enlightened managers understand the value in creating and fostering a strong safety culture within their organization. Safety should become elevated so that it is a value of the organization as opposed to something that must be done or accomplished. Integrating safety and health concerns into the everyday management of the organization, just like production, quality control, and marketing allows for a proactive approach to accident prevention and demonstrates the importance of working safety into the entire organization. Why is management leadership in safety and health a good idea for business? You can increase worker protection, cut business costs, enhance productivity, and improve employee morale. Worksites participating in OSHA's Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) have reported OSHA-verified lost workday cases at rates 60-80% lower than their industry averages. For every $1 saved on medical or insurance compensation costs (direct costs), an additional $5-$50 more are saved on indirect costs, such as repair to equipment or materials, retraining new workers, or production delays. During three years in the VPP, a Ford plant noted a 13% increase in productivity, and a 16% decrease in scrapped product that had to be reworked. Bottom line, safety does pay off! Losses prevented go straight to the bottom line profit of an organization. With today's competitive markets and narrow profit margins, loss control should be every manager's concern. Management actions include: • Establishing a safety and health policy. • Establishing goals & objectives. • Providing visible top management leadership & involvement. • Ensuring employee involvement. • Ensuring assignment of responsibility. • Providing adequate authority and responsibility. • Ensuring accountability for management, supervisors, and rank & file employees. • Providing a program evaluation. Safety and health policy By developing a clear statement of management policy, you help everyone involved with the worksite understand the importance of safety and health protection in relation to other organizational values (e.g., production vs. safety and health). A safety and health policy provides an overall direction or vision while setting a frame-work from which specific goals and objectives can be developed. •Goals and objectives •You should make your general safety and health policy specific by establishing clear goals and objectives. Make objectives realistic and attainable, aiming at specific areas of performance that can be measured or verified. Some examples are: "Have weekly inspections and correct hazards found within 24 hours", or "Train all employees about hazards of their jobs, and specific safe behaviors (use of Job Safety Analysis sheets) before beginning work." OR-OSHA 100 Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 62
  • This material is for training use only Visible top management leadership Values, goals, etc., of top management in an organization tend to get emulated and accomplished. If employees see the emphasis that top management puts on safety and health, they are more likely to emphasize it in their own activities. Besides following set safety rules themselves, managers can also become visible by participating in plant-wide safety and health inspections, personally stopping activities or conditions that are hazardous until the hazards can be corrected, assigning specific responsibilities, participating in or helping to provide training, and tracking safety and health performance. Assignment of responsibility Everyone in the workplace should have some responsibility for safety and health. Clear assignment helps avoid overlaps or gaps in accomplishing activities. Safety and health is not the sole responsibility of the safety and health professional. Rather, it is everyone's responsibility, while the safety and health professional is a resource. Provision of authority Any realistic assignment of responsibility must be accompanied by the needed authority and by having adequate resources. This includes appropriately trained and equipped personnel as well as sufficient operational and capitol funding. Accountability Accountability is crucial to helping managers, supervisors, and employees understand that they are responsible for their own performance. Reward progress and enforce negative consequences when appropriate. Supervisors are motivated to do their best when management measures their performance - "what gets measured is what gets done." Take care to ensure that measures accurately depict accomplishments and do not encourage negative behaviors such as not reporting accidents or near misses. Accountability can be established in safety through a variety of methods: •Charge backs - Charge accident costs back to the department or job, or prorate insurance premiums. •Safety goals - Set safety goals for management and supervision (e.g., accident rates, accident costs, and loss ratios). •Safety activities - Conduct safety activities to achieve goals (e.g., hazard hunts, training sessions, safety fairs, etc., activities that are typically developed from needs identified based on accident history and safety program deficiencies). Program evaluation Once your safety and health program is up and running, you will want to assure its quality, just like any other aspect of your company's operation. Each program goal and objective should be evaluated in addition to each of the program elements, e.g., management leadership, employee involvement, worksite analysis (accident reporting, investigations, surveys, pre-use analysis, hazard analysis, etc.), hazard prevention and control, and training. The evaluation should not only identify accomplishments and the strong points of the safety and health program but also identify weaknesses and areas where improvements can be made. Be honest and identify the true weaknesses. The audit can then become a blueprint for improvements and a starting point for the next year's goals and objectives.

  • This material is for training use only Employee Involvement The best worker safety and health protection occurs when everyone at the worksite shares responsibility for protection. Basic principles of excellence have shown that wise employers use employees' unique knowledge to help find problems and resolve them. In addition, no one else has as much at stake to avoid accidents as the employees who are likely to be injured. The more that employees are involved in a variety of safety-related activities, the more that they will appreciate the potential hazards that exist at the worksite, the more likely that they will avoid unsafe behaviors, and the more likely that the overall safety culture of the organization will strengthen. Without employees' involvement and cooperation, accidents are difficult to prevent. What are the advantages of getting employees involved? • Employees are the ones in contact with potential hazards and will have a vested interest. • Group decisions have the advantage of the group's wider field of experience. • Research shows that employees are more likely to support and use programs in which they have had input; employee buy-in for the needed changes is more likely. • Employees who are encouraged to offer their ideas and whose contributions are taken seriously are more satisfied and productive. • The more that employees are involved in the various facets of the program, the more they will learn about safety, what is causing injuries at their site, and how they can avoid be injured. The more they know and understand, the greater their awareness will be and the stronger the safety culture of the organization will become. How can employees get involved? • Participate on joint labor-management committees and other advisory groups. • Conduct site inspections. • Analyze routine hazards in each step of a job or process, and prepare safe work practices. • Participate in developing and revising safety rules. • Participate as trainers for current and new hires. • Participate in accident/near miss incident investigations. • Participate in decisionmaking throughout the company's operations. • Participate in pre-use and change analysis. • Participate as safety observers and safety coaches. • Report hazards and be involved in finding solutions to correct the problems.

  • This material is for training use only Safety and Health Training Introduction Can all employees explain every existing and potential hazard to which they are exposed? Do they know how to protect themselves and their coworkers from these hazards? Can they explain precisely what they must do in the event of a fire or other emergency? Training can help employees develop the knowledge and skills they need to understand workplace hazards. OSHA considers safety and health training vital to every workplace. Before training begins, be sure that your company policy clearly states the company's commitment to health and safety and to the training program. This commitment must include paid work time for training and training in the language that the worker understands. Involve both management and employees in developing and delivering the programs. Identifying training needs New employees need to be trained not only to do the job, but also to recognize, understand, and avoid potential hazards to themselves and others in their immediate work area and elsewhere in the workplace. Contract workers also need training to recognize your workplace's hazards or potential hazards. Experienced workers will need training if new equipment is installed or process changes. Employees needing to wear personal protective equipment and persons working in high risk situations will need special training. Periodic safety and health training Some worksites need complex work practices to control hazards. Some worksites experience fairly frequent occupational injuries and illnesses. At such sites, it is especially important that employees receive periodic safety and health training to refresh their memories and to teach new methods of control. New training also may be necessary when OSHA or industry standards require it or new standards are issued. One-on-one training is possibly the most effective training method. The supervisor periodically spends some time watching an individual employee work. Then the supervisor meets with the employee to discuss safe work practices, bestow credit for safe work, and provide additional instruction to counteract any observed unsafe practices. One-on-one training is most effective when applied to all employees under supervision and not just those with whom there appears to be a problem. Positive feedback given for safe work practices is a very powerful tool. It helps workers establish new safe behavior patterns and recognizes and thereby reinforces the desired behavior. Evaluations Evaluations can help determine whether the training you have provided has achieved its goal of improving your employees' safety performance. Some ways you can evaluate your training program: Before training begins, determine what areas need improvement by observing workers and soliciting their opinions. When training ends, test for improvement. Ask employees to explain their jobs' hazards, protective measures, and new skills and knowledge. • Keep track of employee attendance at training. • At the end of training, ask participants to rate the course and the trainer. • Compare pre-and post-training injury and accident rates, near misses, and percent of safe behavior exhibited.

  • This material is for training use only SOME COMMON TYPES OF SPECIALIZED TRAINING Safety and Health Training for Managers - Training managers in their responsibilities is necessary to ensure their continuing support and understanding. It is their responsibility to communicate the program's goal and objectives to their employees, as well as assign safety and health responsibilities, and hold subordinates accountable. Safety and Health Training for Supervisors - Supervisors may need additional training in hazard detection, accident investigation, their role in ensuring maintenance of controls, emergency handling, and use of personal protective equipment. Job Orientation - The format and extent of orientation training will depend on the complexity of hazards and the work practices needed to control them. An orientation may consist of a quick review of site safety and health rules, hazard communication training, and a run-through of job tasks. Larger workplaces with more complex hazards and work practices to control them, may wish to start with a clear description of hazards, followed by a discussion of how to protect oneself. Employees may have on-the-job training and may shadow an experienced employee for a period of time. Sources of assistance You can often get additional help in developing training programs and identifying training resources from: • Your insurance carrier, your corporate staff, or your PPE supplier; • Local safety councils or industry associations; • OSHA-funded Consultation Projects for small business; and • OSHA full-service Area Offices Source: OR-OSHA 100 http://www.osha-slc.gov/SLTC/safetyhealth_ecat/ Safety and Health Management - Instructor Guide 66
