Reduce Operational Risk and Increase Performance by building a Safety Management Process
What is Safety Management?
Safety Management is a process that applies to sensitive activities in a work environment to ensure that industry safety standards are met. Organizations are responsible for their employees’ wellbeing; proper implementation of a safety management process guarantees that risks are identified, assessed and mitigated. Safety management includes proper training and monitoring of employees with regards to necessary safety measures so as to prevent incidents and reduce hazards at the workplace.
A safety management system is a planned process or procedure for carrying out a certain activity in the workplace. The reason you should implement a safety management systems is to ensure that when a task is carried out in your workplace, every precaution has been taken to reduce the likelihood of there being an incident that leaves someone injured or worse.
In health and safety, ensuring an engaged workforce is critical. With employees embracing corporate health and safety objectives as their own, creating a safety culture with workforce participation is crucial.

FIVE STEPS FOR SUCCESSFUL SAFETY MANAGEMENT
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 in order 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.
