What makes us different?

We understand when it comes to communicating safety messages, simplicity is a key factor in ensuring that messages are delivered. We also appreciate that in high-risk scenarios accuracy and thoroughness are fundamental to risk mitigation.

Do I need to have prescriptive procedures in my workplace?

Well, that depends! Through the conduct of many accident investigations, we have often observed that strict adherence to procedures can sometimes result in workers failing to adequate think laterally about risks (or indeed the scenarios) that workers are in and in so doing fail to address the dynamic nature of work environments.

Deference to the safety protocol and subsequent procedures should be balanced with deference to expertise in complex systems (Amalberti, 2013).

What’s really important in work safety procedures?

There are a few fundamentals in workplace safety procedures

  • Content must be clear, relevant and matched to the reality of the work situation
  • Ensure that the employees and supervisors who are required to follow the rules/procedures are actively engaged in the decision making about the content contained in the procedure
  • You must ensure that personnel with the right technical knowledge (e.g. engineering/production/HR) and experience relevant to the content have an opportunity to provide input and feedback
  • Opportunity to deviate from the rules/procedures is available should the work situation require it and it is safe to do so.
