Take a new look at leading indicators for safety performance with this high levelMoreDont miss this no nonsense, logical, relevant gem of a book taking on the traditional views of impacting safety which actually keep us from making that next leap. Take a new look at leading indicators for safety performance with this high level approach to the lessons we have been focusing on for the past decade in the realm of Safety Leadership. Using a common sense and elegant framework, this book provides a road map for identifying, tracking, and improving those critical actions that lead to a step change in safety performance.Safety Leadership was identified decades ago as a significant factor in safety performance. In fact, the frontline leader is probably the most influential factor in how frontline workers behave. This New View on what we monitor and track to ensure we are building and sustaining a mature safety culture does not focus on Safety Audits that look for paperwork or documentation. These 5 Leading Indicators are focused on the critical actions taken by frontline supervisors to influence their crews and instill behaviors that foster collaborations, teamwork, and true commitment to safety. These behaviors include 1) Having Safety Intervention Conversations- 2) Asking Open Ended Questions- 3) Referring to Policies and Procedures- 4) Driving Accountability for Process Safety- and 5)Providing Accurate and Timely Feedback. Chapter themes include Even Process Safety is Behavioral, Counting (Safety) Cards, and Asking the Right Questions. Ultimately, Safety Indicators A New View: 5 Leading Indicators for a New Level of Safety Performance provides a simple framework for monitoring, tracking, and (most important) IMPROVING how frontline workers ensure safety. It can be done and this approach provides the access to accomplishing it dramatically and swiftly.
