Some organisations recognise that consistent high performing safety culture delivers significant economic benefit. However, many organisations view this with scepticism. This is hardly surprising. Sometimes safety can get caught up in the ‘elevation of the trivial’ and mindless repetition.
What gets measured gets done and we fix what we find. However, does finding risks at your workplace, cause you to feel frustration rather than triumph? You know someone might get hurt, but does this mean endless paperwork, briefing meetings and tool box talks? To reduce ‘the effort’ do you increase your sanctions to try and ‘drive’ workplace safety? Why are you drowning in compliance activity?

We need to apply the fresh perspective that essentially, people don’t come to work every day with the intent of doing their job badly. When there are bad outcomes we need to look beyond the individual and look at the conditions in which they were working at the time. But this is easier said than done.
