Identifying Cultural Hazards: 4 Clues Your Organization Is Out of Balance

When we hear the words “hazard assessment”, we often think of physical and chemical hazards.  These are the risks to our employees we can see with our eyes and feel with our hands.  But what if the biggest hazard in your organization is the culture?  Culture, defined as “the way we do things around here”, is created by the people working in the environment.  If you can’t see culture with your eyes or feel it with your hands, how can you determine if you have the culture you want? 

 

This program looks at some clues that your culture may be contributing to safety failures. 

  • Clue #1: “No One Will Do Anything Until Someone Gets Hurt”

  • Clue #2: “I Can’t Believe Someone Would Do Something So Stupid.”

  • Clue #3: “I Just New Someone Was Going to Get Hurt Doing That.”

  • Clue #4: “You’ve Had A Lost Time! What Are You Going To Do About It?”

 

For each clue, we will examine what could be behind it and what you can do to effectively change your current culture into a culture of success.

Safety as a Result:

The Role of the Leader

Description:  RESULTS!  Every organization strives to produce results.  Quantifiable results measured in a multitude of ways.  Some organizations consistently achieve those results and others consistently miss the mark.  Safety is one of those results and it is produced through clear, effective leadership at the front-lines of your organization.  Do your front-line leaders have the knowledge and skills to produce the result of safety through others?  Or do they depend on the rules and a lot of luck to make it through the day?  This program looks at how occupational safety results produced are driven by three critical elements of success: our values, our behaviors, and our culture.
