Developing an Effective Safety Culture implements a simple philosophy, namely that working safely is a cultural issue. An effective safety culture will eventually lead to the desired goal of zero incidents in the work place, and this book will provide an understanding of what is needed to reach this goal. The authors present reference material for all phases of building a safety management system and ultimately developing a safety program that fits the culture. This volume offers the most comprehensive approach to developing an effective safety culture. Information is easily accessible as the authors move first through, understanding the cost of incidents, then to perspectives and descriptions of management systems, principal management leadership traits, establishing and evaluating goals and objectives, providing visible leadership, and assigning required responsibilities. In addition, you are given the means to systematically identifying hazards and develop your own hazard inventory and control system. Further information on OSHA requirements for training, behavior-based safety processes, and the development of a job hazard analysis for each task is available as well. Valuable case studies, from the authors' own experience in the industry, are used throughout to demonstrate the concepts presented. * Provides the tools to rebuild or enhance a desired safety culture * Allows you to identify a program that will fit your specific application * Examines different philosophies in relation to safety culture development

Twenty-five safety awareness surveys of organizations in various locations in India reveal that the level of safety awareness among managers is within the range of 75-85% and among non-managers it is within the range of 70-80%. Hence there is a scope of nearly 25-30% improvement in safety awareness level of employees. Eighty to ninety percent of accidents are triggered by unsafe acts or behaviors. Thus there is a need to emphasize upon behavior based safety (BBS). The present treatise is concerned with human safety in understanding and application of the concept and process of behavior based safety for correcting unsafe behaviors for reduction of accidents and promoting safe behaviors for developing injury-free culture in organizations. This book is based on experiential learning through conducting a number of BBS workshops and safety awareness surveys in Indian organizations.

Understanding Developing and Sustaining an Effective Management Safety Culture

"Understanding, developing and sustaining effective management safety cultures begin with understanding the environment, health and safety (EH & S) management system elements and how leadership interacts with said elements. A primary industry strategy for understanding safety cultures is through the use of surveys. Surveys, if carefully crafted, have the ability to get at the 'root' of the culture. In other words, understanding the 'personality' of the culture can assist organizations with fostering an environment where safety is considered a value and not a priority. It can also lead to creating an environment that is harmonious and productive in all other business performance categories. Two survey systems were utilized for analysis of the culture at Pratt & Whitney's East Hartford Site. The E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company's Safety Resources Division created and implemented a safety culture survey for all of Pratt & Whitney in early 2005. In addition, a second, focused survey was developed in quarter 1 of 2006 for line and mid-level managers of the several operations organizations at the East Hartford and Middletown sites. Both survey results are included in this paper. The full survey results are added as appendices. The summary of the results of these surveys, internal EH & S assurance review assessments and literature reviews identified key conclusions and implications of why employees, at multiple levels, believe a certain way about the effectiveness of management and their leadership styles toward safety. Leadership must be engaged and promote safety as a value both on and off the job. Leadership must be competent in the understanding of all aspects of the organization's EH & S management system. Leadership must inform employees of the requirements of their roles and responsibilities of EH & S, provide them training and frequently communicate these requirements as necessary components of a successful business. Finally, leadership must hold employees and themselves accountable when system weaknesses occur or when celebrations are in order for positive safety performance"--Abstract.

Job Hazard Analysis: A Guide for Voluntary Compliance and Beyond, Second Edition, provides a complete reference for performing JHA and setting up a JHA program. The book identifies the basic job steps and tasks, their associated hazards and risks, and safe operating procedures and hazard controls based on this analysis. Authors James Roughton and Nathan Crutchfield argue that the JHA should be the centerpiece of any risk control and occupational safety and health program. However, the traditional JHA has potential problems in gathering and analysis of task data and, with its focus on the sequence of steps, can miss the behavioral effects and the systems interactions between tools, equipment, materials, work environment, management and the individual worker. The concepts are presented for the JHA, incorporating elements from Behavior-Based Safety and Six Sigma. Readers are taken through the whole process of developing tools for identifying workplace hazards, developing systems that support hazard recognition, developing an effective JHA, and managing a JHA based program that can be easily incorporated into occupational safety and health management systems, thus allowing businesses to move from mere compliance to a pro-active safety management. The book is supported by numerous examples of JHAs, end of chapter review questions, sample checklists, action plans, and forms. Provides a basic understanding of the JHA process and a more in-depth background on the human performance improvement for a successful JHA program implementation Methodically develops the risk assessment basics needed within the JHA process Presents expanded resources that are useful in safety systems Incorporates elements from Behavior-Based Safety and Six Sigma

This practical guide—and popular reference—helps you evaluate the efficiency of your company's current safety and health processes and make fact-based decisions that continually improve overall performance. Newly updated, this edition now also shows you how to incorporate safety management system components into your safety performance program and provides you with additional techniques for analyzing safety performance data. Written for safety professionals with limited exposure to statistics and safety-performance-measurement strategies, this comprehensive book shows you how to assess trends, inconsistencies, data, safety climates, and training in your workplace so you can identify areas that need corrective actions before an accident or injury occurs. To help you develop an effective safety metrics program, the author includes both an overview of safety metrics, data collection, and analysis and a set of detailed procedures for collecting data, analyzing it, and presenting it. You'll examine a comprehensive collection of tools and techniques that includes run charts and control charts, trending and forecasting, benchmarking, insurance rating systems, performance indices, the Baldrige Model, and six sigma. In addition, you'll find exercises and questions in each chapter that allow you to practice and review what you've learned. All answers are provided in an appendix. Techniques and tools discussed in this book include descriptive and inferential statistics, cause and effect analyses, measures of variability, and probability. Safety metric program development, implementation, and evaluation techniques are presented as well.
