SCnSP – Politics of Safety (Time)

♦♦  CULTURE   &   SAFETY PERFORMANCE  ♦♦
Mar 2013

In this series, I share with you my thoughts on Why Safety Is An Issue For Most Companies. One of the Things We Must Address If We Want To Improve Our Safety Performance is the role of leadership.

     

The Politics of Safety

Your TIME to build the safety culture

Picture: Madiba

     

As the leader you have to be a VIP – Visible, Involved and Pro-active. Like a politician meeting with his / her constituents, you have to see and be seen, talk and listen. However, unlike so many politicians, you have to back up your walk and talk with ACTION. Your employees look at how much TIME and money you spend on safety and what ACTION you take to fix safety issues.

You have to use part of your personal TIME, your 24 hours, to meet with your employees and recognise safety performance. This goes way beyond merely signing achievement certificates and making a guest appearance at the annual award function, or worse – only setting foot on the plant to visit an accident scene or the injured in hospital. That kind of crisis management does the safety culture more harm than good. You have to manage safety on your feet and not on your seat.

In my book, I quote Jan Carlzon, CEO of SAS:

“ I walk around and see my people, because just to walk around and dare to be strong, dare to give, is much more valuable than any decision I could make or any report I could read. What I give away is mental health to the organisation. The most unproductive time we have is when we sit at our desks. Because the only thing we do is read history: what has already happened, what we cannot do anything about. When we leave our offices and start to walk around and talk to people, that’s when we make things happen. You give your thoughts; you get thoughts back; you draw conclusions; perhaps you even make decisions. ”

ACTION

Here is my challenge to you.

Get your top team to accept that they have to spend TIME on their feet, over and above the scheduled management audits, to build and maintain the safety culture. When doing this, they should look for the GOOD, the bad and the ugly, but mainly the GOOD. It is a tough call, to make TIME and to focus on finding opportunities to connect with and to recognise people! Get into the habit of arranging regular work stoppages, where the whole operation takes TIME out to focus and reflect on safety. The top team should ‘sit in the font row’ for the duration of these events and not only make brief appearances. This is THE most important business: shaping the safety culture of your organization!

SCnSP – Leadership Responsibility (Rot at Top)

♦♦  CULTURE   &   SAFETY PERFORMANCE  ♦♦
Feb 2013

In this series, I share with you my thoughts on Why Safety Is An Issue For Most Companies. One of the Things We Must Address If We Want To Improve Our Safety Performance is the role of leadership.

     

The Rot Starts At The Top

Leadership responsibility in safety

Picture: conductor of orchestra

     

Leaders have to be like the conductor of an orchestra. They select the music, dictate the tune and tempo, and ensure that all employees practice the safety habits so that together they can deliver a masterpiece.

There are, of course, other aspects as well, like setting expectations, holding each player accountable, giving feedback and recognition, etc. Nonetheless, the leaders have to invest their most precious resource to do all of this, namely their TIME. They have to be VIP’s – Visible, Involved and Pro-active – to show their employees that they are serious about safety. This is a tough call because there are so many other issues demanding the leader’s time – costs, quality, productivity, customer service …

The leader is accountable for the safety strategy, for looking ahead to what will be done tomorrow (rather than what is being done today or, even worse, what has been done yesterday!), for thinking, visualising the goal and for formulating the plan of how to get there.

There are 3 key habits which the leaders have to practice in this regard:

  1. Leaders have to formulate and communicate the safety vision and strategy. This is critical. For employees to follow, they need to know where the leader is heading and how he/she plans to get there.
  2. Leaders have to ensure that a culture of taking ACTION, in terms of safety, exists in the organization. Nothing kills the commitment and engagement in safety as quickly as a lack of ACTION. When employees see that nothing is being done about safety incidents or observations, then safety will not be a priority for them either. Taking (safety) ACTION goes way beyond pasting the SHE Policy on the walls!
  3. Leaders have to review the safety strategy. If the desired / anticipated results are not being achieved, then doing more of the same is not going to help. The leader has to look for different ways of doing things and the review should be ongoing, not only once every two years.

ACTION

Here is my challenge to you.

Use the download from my web site dealing with “Vision & Strategy” to examine what you have in place in your organization in terms of your safety strategy. Use the technique in that write-up as a checklist to formulate or review your safety vision and strategy.

It is important that leaders understand that changing the SHE culture is a transformation process and not an event. It takes years to implement such a culture change on a sustainable basis. Most companies run these short-term campaigns like ZERO ACCIDENTS, SAFETY FIRST, NO INJURIES, etc., but do not have a strategy and long-term plan in place.

The first step in formulating a safety strategy is to do the diagnostics. Look at the links below for excellent examples of what I am talking about – plus an outstanding communication effort by the NPC (National Planning Commission):

BTW. As active, adult citizens you should take an interest in what the NPC is doing to shape the future of this country!

VUKA! VUSA!™ Safety Boot Camp

 

Jurgen Tietz: Anda Manufacturing CC TA eKhuluma logoimpleX Legal Compliance Solutions logo

VUKA! VUSA! Wake Up! Rise up! Boot Camp by eKhuluma and impleX

The SHE Rep plays a pivotal role in any OHS Management System:

  • On the one hand, the SHE Rep represents the employee – for the employees, by the employees.
  • On the other hand, the SHE Rep is a member of the committee tasked with making representations to the Employer on OHS issues.
Approach, Objectives and Outcomes

By involving the SHE Reps in the management of incidents (prevention, preparation, response and recovery), the employer will reap double the benefits. Not only will the SHE Reps be familiar with and understand the preventative measures relating to hazards and risks in the workplace (incidentally a legal requirement), but they will also be able to understand corrective action measures, and thus be able to explain these to the employees.

By equipping SHE Reps with the knowledge and understanding of the legislative requirements for reporting of incidents, accidents and other health threatening occurrences and near misses, you can ensure compliance with the legislative requirements, which is in the best interest of employees, whilst ensuring a workplace that is safe and without risk to health.

Course Outline

To ensure that we capture the SHE Rep audience and hold their attention, this unique BOOT CAMP comprises of

  • 1-2 hours discussion on the legislative requirements, in easy and understandable terms, using information provided by a legal expert from impleX.
  • Each delegate then receives a COOL TOOL™ pack.
  • 2-3 hours of application of the legislative measures to everyday objects through fun activities and association.

The double impact will ensure that the SHE Reps leave the boot camp understanding and, more importantly, remembering the requirements. They will be eager to relate this knowledge, on a sustainable basis, to their areas of responsibility.

PART 1: DISCUSSION – LEGISLATIVE REQUIREMENTS

  • An introduction to the applicable Health and Safety legislation
  • How to interpret the law – for non-lawyers
  • Duties of the employer
  • Duties of the employee
  • Duties of the Health and Safety representative – in terms of the law
  • Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment – Assessing and responding to risk
  • Training, Information, Instruction and Supervision
  • Investigation and reporting of accidents, incidents and diseases
  • Your company-specific procedure for incident management
  • The cost of non-compliance – liability, penalties and action by the inspectorate

PART 2: APPLICATION ACTIVITIES – LEGISLATIVE MEASURES

Jurgen Tietz - Vuka Vusa toolbox - closed view

The novel, unique and flexible COOL TOOL™ TOOLBOX items are specifically aimed at raising the awareness and need for action in OHS related matters. Using a hands-on approach gets the people at the rock face / shop floor to “eKhuluma” (talk) about and take action on safety related matters.

This approach makes the OHS messages ‘stick’. The power of the COOL TOOL™ items lies in their simplicity and in associating everyday items with OHS. With minimal guidance and training, your H&S Reps will be able to engage people across cultures and levels to “walk their talk”.

Number of Attendees & Sessions

Minimum 30 attendees per session, but up to 60 can be accommodated.

Duration & Timing

Up to 5 hours training, excluding lunch and tea breaks.

The quote is based on training sessions done Monday to Friday, during day-shift hours.

If training sessions are required over the weekend or after hours, a 50% surcharge per delegate will be imposed.

Venue & Preparation

The Client is responsible for arranging a suitable venue that meets our requirements for workshop facilitation and interaction with the delegates.

The Client will deal with the logistics and provision of refreshments.

The contact details of the delegates need to be provided by the Client before each session, so that we can send the delegates the pre-work required in preparation for the workshop, as well as invite them to share with us any questions and/or issues they may have.

Equipment / Presentation Aids Requirements

Please confirm that you have a screen projector and flip chart / white board available in the training facility.

Certificates & Feedback

An Attendance Certificate will be given to each workshop attendee and a summary of the feedback and evaluation comments will be given to the client.

Customization for In-House Boot Camps: MIRROR TECHNIQUE

This critical technique involves taking photos of your specific site and giving feedback to the audience about the GOOD, the bad and the ugly. I focus on personal workspaces, where you sit, eat, work and keep your tools, as I believe that safety starts ‘at home’. In the feedback I use the Safety Game analogy, with the ‘players’ and ‘coach’, as well as the “ISIBOPHO” whistle and red / green card. The delegates have to ‘look to see’ and accept responsibility for the need to change. This technique involves photos of your operation, which the delegates can recognize and identify with. Below are a few examples of photos which I share with the people ‘who push the buttons and use the tools’.

Mirror Technique photo exampleMirror Technique photo example

The customisation is included in the Boot Camp fee. We estimate that it will take half a day to walk about, take suitable photographs and prepare the mirror sessions for the delegates. The client has to provide a safety person to act as a guide for these walkabouts.

To Meet or Not to Meet, That’s YOUR Question

grandfather clock by speaker, author, thought leader Jurgen Tietz

Following on from my previous communiques on meetings, MyTime and So Many Meetings, So Little Time, and because time is such an important aspect of our lives.

Time is the most precious resource we have.
We all have this finite resource of 24 hours,
so why waste it in unproductive meetings?

And so, “To meet, or not to meet?” – that’s the question you need to answer if you are the meeting owner. 

Have a look at the 5 worst reasons for a meeting and examine your meetings. Do they fall into the category of “worst meetings”? 

Impromptu meetings, especially when abusing your position, really reflect on your lack of planning and crisis management style. You know how disruptive it is when you are called to a “the boss wants to see you now” meeting.

If you have to involve a group of people, then meet on your feet rather than on your seat. Sitting down with cookies and tea invariably draws out the session, but you can only stand for so long. 

If you want to know how others value your meeting, then organise it for after hours and see how many people don’t pitch or make excuses and how quickly you complete the agenda. 

 Be safe – the SIMPLY SMART way,

Jürgen
