Safe Business Management

Managing safe business operations requires an ongoing, systematic effort to identify and fix workplace hazards before employees are injured. Safety and Health Management System is what it’s called. A SHMS requires leadership support, worker participation (including any unions present in your company), hazard assessment, prevention and control as well as opportunities for education and regular program evaluation.

Traditional approaches blame worker-related accidents. Herbert W. Heinrich’s 1930s-era theory that 85-95% of accidents are caused due to unsafe actions of individuals, sparked many different kinds of behavior-based safety (BBS). In recent years, advocates of quality approach safety have realized that accidents arise from processes and systems and use quality tools to lower the likelihood of them happening.

Managers need to be taught the message that being a safe business is an essential part of their job. This can be accomplished through explicit comments or reviews of performance and even bonuses. LyondellBasell for instance will inform managers that no matter how low the OSHA recordable injury rate is in the event of a serious accident that occurs on the premises they will not be able to receive any bonus.
