Organizations face some tough issues in safety. Lack of engagement, employees taking safety shortcuts and viewing safety as a rules exercise are just a few. Safety professionals and frontline supervisors really want to change this but lack a starting point. How do you improve engagement in the work, quality of production, and the willingness to do it safely?
Engaged employees take pride in the work they do. They care about quality. They are highly productive. And, they take workplace safety personally. Simply put, improve your people, value them, increase their engagement levels and you improve the things they do: quality, production and safety.
It’s why I developed PeopleWork, a new people-centered approach to safety in the workplace.
PeopleWork combines four critical components of what I call the M4 Method to improve engagement levels in safety:
The M4 Method is a tool that’s used to directly help supervisors and safety people build on-the-job relationships that support safety from the ground up. It’s a new way of getting employee buy-in, the most critical component of company safety programs and safety culture.
For 20 years, I've been working directly with companies and associations through speaking presentations and consulting. Engaging with industry and company leaders, safety teams, and frontline supervisors, I have helped front-line teams and management to lay out the practical solutions that everyone can master. It’s a people-centered approach that yields remarkable gains in both workplace safety and employee productivity.
It's a process that helps put everyone on the same page and rally around the common theme of safety. Find out how organizations across Canada and the U.S. are bringing people-centered principles into their safety programs and establishing safety as a personal and company-wide value.
