The purpose of this phase of the Topf Initiative is to introduce safety observations and reviews and provide constructive S, H & E intervention skills to all levels of employees so they are perceived of and used as a constructive and valuable tool for the prevention of accidents, injuries and health/environmental incidents.
The observation and review process and system serves to reinforce key safety, health and environmental awareness, skills and behaviors, by providing a method for observing, evaluating and giving feedback to line and management employees regarding personal, team, and departmental performance. A step-by-step safety, health and environmental observation and review process is tailored and implemented to support and enhance overall performance while maintaining consistency with existing labor and management human resource policies.
Observation and feedback processes can be an effective method to reinforce safe attitudes and behaviors and correct or improve unsafe attitudes, behaviors and workplace conditions and/or procedures when used in conjunction with other culture change and attitudinal/behavioral improvement methods.
This process will:
Provide a basic system, complete with structure, format, forms, checklists and procedures that will allow for the tailoring of this Safety Improvement Process Review to meet the specific philosophy, needs, requirements, and policies of each unique project location. A cross-functional design team will be selected for this tailoring process for your company or site.
Introduce safety observations and reviews to all levels of employees so they are perceived as a constructive and valuable tool for the prevention of accidents, injuries and health and environmental incidents.
Reinforce the specific leadership, management, team support and interpersonal skills which will enable the safety support team participants to conduct safety observations and reviews, reinforce positive behaviors, correct unsafe attitudes and behaviors, and improve workplace conditions in a constructive, supportive manner.
Train a selected team of managers, supervisors, and union or line personnel to be Safety Improvement Process Reviewers.
Determine a meaningful form of measurement and feedback, which will assess current progress and improvement in attitudes, behaviors, and workplace, conditions.
