Changing Employee Attitudes and Thinking About Safety
Pioneering the "Holistic, Integrated Approach" to Personal and Corporate Safety Awareness and Performance For Over 36 Years
Human beings have an innate sense of how to keep themselves and their environment safe and healthy. With modern business's current emphasis on safety, health, and the environment both in and out of the workplace, this innate sense is brought to the forefront at work for most people who generally understand what to do and what not to do to remain safe and healthy. Yet, despite this knowledge and well-publicized rules and regulations and safety do’s and don’ts,
People still get hurt on and off the job, and health and environmental incidents still occur!
Topf Initiatives’ “Holistic, Integrated Approach” to Safety, Health, and Environmental Improvement directly addresses each employee's personal risk behaviors, and the attitudes, beliefs, and thinking that lead to those behaviors, achieving dramatic results in preventing errors, accidents and injuries. Many clients have reported that traditional efforts to improve accident and incident rates by instituting programs, such as:
Use of protective equipment
Revamped and well-published procedures (posters, email broadcasts, meetings, training sessions, etc.)
Safety campaigns (including motivational programs and rewards)
have not yielded their desired results, and only marginally increase safety, health, and environmental performance.
Historically, we have had great success in assisting our clients and all levels of employees in preventing accidents, injuries, and health/environmental incidents, both on and off their jobs, where traditional efforts most often yield diminishing returns.
