10 ways to ensure your safety leadership journey towards vision zero

  1. 1. About the presentation This presentation on Safety Leadership Journey towards Vision Zero is about the path ahead - the ten major ways of establishing a culture of proactive leadership ensuring a safety culture for everyone.
  2. 2. Striving for Vision Zero The transformational approach of Vision Zero aims to prevent harm to the people of the industry. It integrates the three dimensions of safety, health and well-being at all levels. The vision, approach, comradeship and actions of the safety leaders bring out the transformation of Vision Zero.
  3. 3. How do you work towards making ‘Vision Zero’ a reality?
  4. 4. 1. Infusing Innovation Leadership must realise that traditional approach alone is not the solution to our OHS problems. It is important that leadership adopt new and innovative approaches to tackle problems. They must ensure that these are infused into the organisation. Safety can be considered as a focus area for process innovation within the organisation.
  5. 5. 2. Connecting… New ideas will not be successful unless every employee is taken on board. This will require adequate awareness, communication and trust building exercise. Leadership has to convince the rank and file that they are serious and committed about it. In many instances, fault lines are detected here. A feedback-rich environment enhances both communication and motivation. Positive feedback can act as a consequence that increases safe behaviour (reinforcement). A safety perception survey may help an organisation to know the ground reality.
  6. 6. 3. Resource Matters The study shows that there are problems with hierarchy of control. Most of the time, the apex level of controls like engineering control or process change needs significant initial investment. In absence of that, the tendency moves towards the last levels of controls like PPE and administrative controls; and they are really not very reliable. This area needs further attention. Here, good practices include allocation of adequate resources for safety, may be through a well established budgeting process considering capital and operational expenses.
  7. 7. 4. Managing The Supply Chain Effectively Supply chain is an important area for improvement. Supply chain partners present a typical problem. Parent companies have not much management control over the supply chain members; yet their contribution towards OHS incidents could be enormous. Leadership has to find out ways and means to influence the supply chain members to successfully manage the outcome. Supply chain safety programmes linked to business benefits always achieve more success than compliance based approach.
  8. 8. 5. Team It Up With Customised Training Organisations are generally conducting conventional safety trainings, however, effectiveness is the area of concern. Customised capacity development programmes shall enhance safety competence. Knowledge, awareness and behavioural performances – all of them are to be considered as success factors.
  9. 9. 5. Team It Up With Customised Training The workplace safety skills learning process for the workers demands completely different approach than that of the management training.
  10. 10. 6. Learning & Growing Learning from the past events is another weak area revealed by the study. The organisations that do not learn from their past mistakes cannot grow. The organisations that keep learning from past mistakes and are able to internalise the lessons learnt are bound to be the winners. A well established incident investigation system based on a robust model is highly recommended to achieve success in this area. Communications and adoption of issues arising out of unit’s boundary is also an important source of learning.
  11. 11. 7. Influencing The Behaviour Through BBS Behaviour Based Safety (BBS) is another weak area. Leadership can influence behaviour which when directed properly develops into a safe working culture in the organisation. However, it is important to prepare the employees in Behaviour Based Safety (BBS) and educate them in this area.
  12. 12. The adoption of Behaviour Based Safety should start from the leadership team. The BBS programme should also consider the local culture and societal issues to become sustainable.
  13. 13. 8. Ensuring Contractors Safety Contractor’s safety management is another area requiring attention. Most of the hazardous activities in any industry are typically off loaded to contractors. We can never achieve Vision Zero unless we can take our contractors on board. A robust Contractor Management System with a long term vision shall be able to prevent harm in this vulnerable area.

  15. 15. 9. Is Safety In Your Priority List? Health and work area monitoring deserve a lot more attention. It is known that many fatalities in industry occur due to occupational health alone. This area did not get its due importance perhaps due to the fact that accidents are instantly visible whereas occupational diseases take years to show up. Successfully managed Occupational Health (OH) system may include use of more competent resources (OH Specialists), Occupational Health Survey, health database management and creation of more awareness within the employees.
  16. 16. 10. Embracing Technology In The Safety Excellence Journey Finally, leadership in use of technology has to be considered as need of the hour to eliminate, minimise and manage hazards. Use of smart systems and data analytics can be used as a predictive tool for OHS risk management. This will make the system more predictable and reliable.
