Safe Business Management

Published in 3 de outubro de 2023 by

In order to ensure that business operations are safe, it is necessary to make a continuous and systematic effort to find and fix workplace hazards before employees are injured. It’s commonly known as a Safety and Health Management System (SHMS). An SHMS requires the support of leadership; worker participation (including the acting involvement of any union if present in your organization) and hazard identification assessment, prevention and control; opportunities for education and training as well as regular evaluation and improvement.

Traditional approaches blame the cause of accidents on the workers. Herbert W. Heinrich’s 1930s theory that 85-95 percent of accidents are the result of unsafe actions by individuals fueled an array of behavior-based safety (BBS) strategies. Recently the people who advocate for quality approach to safety have recognized that accidents arise from systems and processes and use high-quality tools to decrease the likelihood of them happening.

Managers must realize that safety is a crucial part of their jobs. This can be accomplished through explicit comments such as performance reviews, a performance review, or bonuses. LyondellBasell for instance, makes it clear to managers that no matter how low the OSHA recordable injury rate is and if a serious injury occurs on the job the company will not be awarded any bonus.
