An effective safety plan ensures that when a task is carried out at workplace, every precaution has been taken to reduce the likelihood of an incident that leaves someone injured or worse. Try applying the following Five-Step Safety Plan for successful safety management at your organization:
Step One: Safety Audit
Perform a comprehensive safety audit to evaluate compliance with the standards and regulations. This helps identify gap areas on which safety and environmental performance needs improvement.
Step Two: Action Plan
Based on the results of the Safety Audit, launch a corrective/preventive action plan that addresses the root cause of the issues facing your organization. Predict360’s system recommends the rollout of corrective and preventative actions through three modules: 1) Training 2) Incident/Case Management 3) Expert advisory services through our network of top 10% experts in the subject matter.
Step Three: Safety Program Responsibilities & Key Roles
Develop Safety Program Responsibilities for all levels of the organization to provide a foundation for building the safety system.
Step Four: Management and Employee Safety Training
Train the line management to support, take responsibility of, and be accountable for the success of the safety system. For training employees on applicable safety topics, use computer-based training alongside regular line management “safety talks” with the department (5-10 minute daily/weekly talks) covering the same topic.
Step Five: The Safety Plan
A safety plan is necessary to provide a phased approach to achieving safety success. The safety plan should be developed with input from key functional areas, communicated throughout the organization and then regularly reviewed to ensure the plan is effectively being met.
Predict360’s Safety Management System streamlines health and safety processes and best practices to effectively manage all aspects of an organization’s safety program with incident and regulatory reporting. It enables organizations to collect, store, track and collaborate on safety compliance-related incidents. It has a built-in investigation feature that is tied back to the incident, which streamlines corrective and preventive actions (CAPA).
