Safety management is not
just about reducing accidents. It is about improving the bottom line
through a multi-pronged effort aimed primarily at improving communication and
trust throughout the organization. A safety management system will reduce
accidents, and save money on insurance premiums, deductibles, lost
productivity, and WCB claims. A safety management system will also
improve efficiency due to improved vertical communication, raise morale as
frontline workers feel empowered, and give more direct information to managers
about their employees.
Our approach is to spend
some time understanding the dynamics of your organization, and then design a
system that enhances the processes you already have in place. We place a
strong emphasis on training all levels of the organization on how the systems
will function, and then we return to monitor and tweak as the need arises.
