In the world of safety it is not enough to have policies and procedures anymore. The question today is whether you have a safety system that can be managed and can adapt to the changes your company faces.
In the offshore oil and gas world, that takes the form of SEMS. In chemical plants and refineries, it is PSM. Now pipelines have their own API safety management system and the towboat and barge industry is fall under federal requirements to have a version of a safety management system that complies with a new inspection regime.
Lifeline Strategies has extensive experience in helping companies ensure that their safety program meets safety management system requirements. If your company is under pressure to show customers how you manage safety systematically or if you must manage contractors and vendors to make sure they meet your standards, we can help.
Supervisors and mid-level managers are the keys to safety, productivity and worker involvement. If your supervisors aren’t communicating and implementing company policies at the field level, it doesn’t matter what the C-Suite says. Yet many businesses find that, instead of being a strength for their company, their supervisors and managers are a weakness.
Lifeline Strategies’ special leadership class, Buddy-to-Boss, shows supervisors how to make the jump from just being a member of the crew to leading the crew. Through a highly interactive class that relies on discussion, role-playing and videos, the class helps supervisory personnel understand the responsibilities that go with their jobs and some of the key tools to keeping crews engaged, productive and, most importantly, safe.
