Safety culture through employee participation.

You want employees to embrace the safety program. But it's hard to do when safety is presented in terms of only protocols, paperwork and procedures.

Truthfully, you don't need more safety processes. You need more employees to buy-in to what you are trying to do in safety.

That takes a very different approach.

You need an innovative approach that combines safety-focused communications, with internal supervisory coaching programs, and creates employee buy-in to safety.

Click on any of the three circles below to explore how our solutions can work for you (exclusively online delivery).

Step 1: Clarify your safety message to Rally Your Team.

Create the RYT message to Rally Your Team.

You feel like you talk endlessly about safety but it doesn’t seem to stick. So, you try something else. Still, no consistent results. 

When dealing with inconsistent safety performance and employee buy-in, the first place to look is your safety message.

Is it a strong, clear and concise message of safety that resonates with employees to get everyone working toward the same safety goals?

A targeted, clear safety awareness message can rally people around safety. In this safety communications program, we get your safety message RYT.

RYT stands for Rally Your Team and that's exactly what we will do together.

We bring your focused group of employees, safety personnel, and management around the virtual boardroom table where we create your own, custom RYT Statement.

Your RYT Statement becomes the foundation of your safety communications and culture.

Give your team something to look forward to. Give them a mission to accomplish together. Go to the RYT Program page to clarify your message, click below.

Step 2: Build supervisor support for employees to follow. 

Employees do what supervisors do.

No one has more of an influence on frontline employees' safety performance, production, morale, motivation, communications, or coaching than front-line supervisors. Yet, most supervisors ascend to their positions without the skills to deliver what front-line employees want most from supervisors.

So, it is critical to ensure that your supervisors develop the skills to effectively support safety. Supervisors are the leaders of crews. That requires leadership skills development. 

That's why the Safety Communications & Coaching for Supervisors Program (SCCS) was created; to ensure supervisors were equipped to support safety, and to be able to coach and support their teams.

Supervisors need the right skills. Go to the SCCS Program page to get your supervisors effective skills.

Step 3: Get employee buy-in through safety meetings.

A positive message of safety for employees.

Times are different. Now we have to find an effective way to reach our people using technology. That means you need to create safety awareness in a new way.

Don't make your people hate your online safety meetings by employing bad webinars and voice-over-PowerPoint onslaughts. 

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

I got into safety by accident; just not the kind that creates a sad story to tell.

Two decades ago, while working to improve the leadership skills of a senior management team, their CEO suggested my message would be a perfect fit for their front-line employees.

We arranged to work with their safety department to prepare a similar leadership presentation focused on safety. It was a home run and a welcome change up from the typical compliance lectures and rule preaching.

That started what has now become an exclusive focus on providing strategies and tools to solve challenges in safety performance, to create employee buy-in, and to capture the hearts and minds of the people tasked with doing safety every day. 

KevBurns Learning are at the leading edge of innovation using technology and strategies that effectively engage employees in safety.
