How to Inspire Your People to Work Safe 5. Not only must it be our responsibility – but it should also be our passion. 21. BE CONSISTENT – With your Safety efforts. Apply whatever you do evenly and across the board. Do not show any type of favoritism or partiality with Safety. 23. EMPLOY “SAFETY EYES” – By this I mean getting your People to be an extension of you. It is much more beneficial if all of your People are watching for and correcting unsafe work practices than just you. 25. WORKPLACE SAFETY IS A TEAM UNDERTAKING – As the Safety Leader – one of your critical missions is to conduct your efforts in a Team fashion. 29. In order to be successful with this effort – I feel that as a Safety Leader – you must reach out and find ways to make Workplace Safety important to your People. 30. You must conduct your efforts so that your People think of Safety before they act and perform their tasks. 34. Reduced Wages – Delays in Lost Time Benefits kicking in, not matching Normal Pay, Benefits running out, etc. 36. ANNUAL W/C $: Assuming an Organization with 300 Employees = 40 hrs/wkx 52 wks = 2,080 Annual Hours x 300 Employees x $2.42 WC/Hr = $1,510,080 Annually 53. Have them point out to you the Hazards that they face in performing their jobs. 57. Don’t Be a Safety Cop– I have known individuals that love to walk around and find their People doing something unsafe so that they can penalize them. 60. NOTE PAD – If you take time during your Safety Walks to talk to your People – you can rest assured that they will give you Safety Items to do. 61. But to be successful with this effort – you must spend time to act on what your People tell or ask you, and 63. CAMERA – I feel that a Camera is critical to a Safety Leader – but you must know how to use it to promote Safety. 66. By this I do not mean that you must be able to actually perform their duties – but you should have a general knowledge of what they do. 67. When walking – ask them to describe to you what they do, what hazards they face, etc. 68. Such will give you an indication of how well that they know their Jobs. 70. Whether it be due to seeing things so often it becomes 2nd nature – or not having the right expertise / perspective to see anything different. 75. As a Supervisor, Manager, or Safety Leader – you can direct Your People to perform their Jobs Safely. 77. SAFETY COMMITTEES – Make a point to form and use such Safety Groups – who should meet on a regular basis – to undertake various Safety Issues & Concerns of your Location. 79. SAFETY AUDITORS – If you employ the use of SA’s – include a representation of your People. They can very well offer different perspectives on various matters. 81. HARVEST & SHARE BEST PRACTICES – As a Safety Leader when performing your Safety Walks and Talks – I would bet that you will see or hear of a possible “Best Work Practice.” 82. Not only must you be able to identify – but you must verify that it is one worthy of –and can be truly used as a Best Practice. 84. Tooling Purchases – If you are needing to purchase various T&E for your workforce – have them be part of the Selection process. 92. You should now be asking what was the purpose of the Picture on the preceding Page. 95. LIVE & LEARN EXAMPLES – are summaries of various matters from other Organizations or Sources – which can be used to educate and warn your People of like conditions. 96. SAFETY SCORECARDS – is an internal summary report on how the Location / Organization is doing in terms of Safety Performance. 98. Leading Indicators –# of Near Miss Reported, # of Safety Audits Performed and Exceptions Completed, etc. 100. Maximize Their Safety Time – It is common place in many Organizations that Safety is “short changed” due to other priorities and time commitments. 102. In order for your Safety Communications to reach out and grab your People – make sure that what you are offering – Pertains to what They Do. 103. Use What You Learn from Your People – As a Safety Leader, you will always be learning something from Your People. 104. By using what you have learned from Your People – not only will provide them some type of Safety Recognition, 106. Inspect your Tools & Equipment daily – and do not use them unless they are in a Safe Working condition. 112. But the Question is – “How and When Do You Use Discipline & Recognition to Inspire Safety?” 113. As a Safety Leader – Can you easily answer this Question? 122. Any efforts to the contrary – will not only lead your People to question your Safety Efforts – but will result in them not trusting you as well. 136. Just remember – that once you start asking – you must devote time and efforts to follow through. 137. LOOK OUTSIDE – To help assess what you do Safety Wise – benchmark your efforts to others. 139. In your eyes – you could be the hardest working Safety “son of a gun” out there – but if the Safety Results of your Location do not match your efforts – there is a disconnect. 140. If you are an active Safety Leader – than you would expect to see your People active in their Workplace Safety. 142. Make your Safety Training mobile – enable your Employees to access “Online” and from anywhere. 144. CHANGE AS PROCESSES CHANGE – Make a point that whenever a Major Process Change takes place – that your Safety Training / Efforts change with it. 146. A Safety Leader should be able to walk into another Facility and assess what they do Safety Wise – that could possibly benefit their own Location. 147. NETWORK WITH OTHER SAFETY LEADERS – Never assume that what you know and do covers it all. 149. As the Safety Leader – you must know and be mindful of the differences that you will face with reaching out and inspiring each of these Generations to Work Safe. 150. In addition to finding out how to Inspire them – the Safety Leader must also know or find out how to teach them and with what methods. 159. Spend Time on Safety Training – by researching various Safety Topics – and tailoring it to what your People do and need in their Workplace. 161. Set a Goal to Engage Your People in Safety – by devoting time to finding out how to include your People in your Safety Efforts – DON’T GO IT ALONE. 163. Walk Your Safety Talk is another Safety Phrase that cannot be said enough – practice what you preach.
