Safety improvement through employee buy-in.

Most companies don’t have faulty safety procedures. They have a lack of buy-in to those procedures from employees.

So, when safety performance drops, is the right approach to double-down on rules enforcement? Of course not. And this is where companies make a big mistake.

Improving safety performance isn't done through more enforcement of rules and procedures. It's done by getting more employees to buy-in to the safety program. 

But that takes a different approach and a plan.

The 3-Step Plan for Safety Buy-in

Step 1: Build supervisor leadership skills.

Support supervisors to lead the safety program.

Simply put, no one has more influence on employee behavior than front-line supervisors. Supervisors play a critical role in safety. The PeopleWork Supervisor Leadership Program targets supervisory leadership capacity and helps them become more effective in their role.

The 12-week program consists of video modules, weekly coaching, and facilitated discussions on topics that affect supervisors most. Get your supervisors engaged from day one.

Step 2: Clarify and simplify the safety message. 

Create a safety message that actually sticks.

You've tried those generic Internet slogans and tired old safety cliches that just don't work. You feel like you talk endlessly about safety but it doesn’t seem to stick. You need a simple and clear message of safety that resonates with your people. 

The problem is that there has been no formula to create it for each individual company. Until now!

Introducing The RYT Program (Rally Your Team). RYT saves you hours of time and frustration in finding the right message that appeals to your team specifically. In just a few hours, you will have a clear and concise message of safety.

Step 3: Say goodbye to boring safety meetings.

Positive safety meetings create employee buy-in.

Don't make employees hate safety meetings by employing bad webinars, worse presenters, and mind-numbing PowerPoint onslaughts. 

Valuable safety meetings need to inspire employees. Safety meetings should create a desire for employees to step up and buy-in to safety as a lifestyle choice - not just a compliance program.

Isn't it time to feel proud of safety?

Don't make safety a pain point. Make it a point of pride. 

After 30+ years of working with companies just like yours, we know what makes your employees want to buy-in to safety - and it's not policies, paperwork, and procedures. That's why we developed our 3-Step Plan.

Help your employees get what they really want from the safety program:

  1. A sense of security and control over their work environment
  2. A sense of connection to their supervisor and their fellow workers
  3. A sense of purpose from knowing they are doing their part to make their small part of the world a safer place
