Safety Manager in Fort Lauderdale:
"What I have learn."
Safety training is a good start for the beginning stages of safety, but in my experience they will only be aware of safety as long as a supervisor or trainer is near. I believe that for employee’s to get the most out of SAFETY we need to apply a safety CULTURE/BEHAVIOR to our employee’s and this start from the top of the company all the way down to the new employee's. There are a few things that I would implement. 1. To encourage and motivate its employee's to make safety and awareness their highest priorities. 2. Recognizing that 95% of all accidents are preventable and only usually occur following unsafe actions or a failure to follow established procedures. 3. Always setting targets for continuous improvement, with a goal of zero Unsafe Acts/Preventable Incidents. So what we want to hit on is encouragement, motivation, recognition, preventable, continuous improvement and goals.
