SafetyCompass® is our suite of safety performance solutions.

Behind each solution is the most recent research in human performance.


Safety Culture Alignment & Diagnostic

A Complete Analysis of an Organization’s Safety Culture

 

Description

The RAD Group has helped a long list of organizations understand their actual safety culture.  During the diagnostic process, our assessment experts work with senior management to create a definition of your desired safety culture. Then through an examination of your Safety Management System and interviews with a representative sample of employees, we determine the actual safety culture in the organization.  RAD’s diagnostic team then provides a detailed report of the relevant information to executive leadership, including recommended solutions for creating the desired safety culture.

The Results

The RAD Group was called in by an oilfield services company to help fix problems in a newly acquired business units that had been combined into a single 1000 employee operating division. The division was performing well below expectations, with a turnover rate of 300% and extremely poor safety performance.

Turnover and LTAs in this one division were losing the company about $25 million annually.

The RAD Group performed a Culture Assessment Diagnostic of the division, discovered the various factors producing the poor results and designed and implemented an intervention strategy. The division ended the next year with a 40% turnover rate and an 82% reduction in LTA’s. These improvements translated to over $20 million in annual profit for the client.

 


Intervention

Speak up, Diagnose, and Fix Unsafe operations

 

Description

The complexity of modern organizations requires a proactive and dynamic layer of protection – direct human intervention.

On average, untrained employees intervene in fewer than 40% of the unsafe activities that they observe on the job, which is a critical gap in most organizations’ management of risk.  Fixing this problem requires more than giving people the authority to stop work.  Employees must overcome multiple barriers to speaking up and leaders must deliberately create a culture of intervention.

SafetyCompass® Intervention™ training is a practical program that enables employees to intervene reliably and effectively when they observe unsafe actions or conditions.

After building a case for the importance of speaking up, attendees learn to avoid common inhibiting forces and then tailor a personalized approach to intervention around a core set of skills.

Human Performance in Context™

Why People Do What They Do and How to INFLUENCE PERFORMANCE

 

Description

The decision to act, either safely or unsafely, does not happen in a vacuum, but rather in response to a complex set of factors.

This Half-Day training provides participants with an understanding of human performance and the many factors that drive it.  Built around a simple but robust Human Factors Safety model – The Contextual Model of Performance™ – this program makes the most recent science in human behavior easy to understand, and enables participants to analyze the behaviors that they observe.  In addition to improving safety performance, the course concepts and skills have a broad application both in operations as well as off the job.

Course Agenda

• Complexity, Layers of Protection and People:  Where People Fit in the Puzzle

• Safe and Unsafe Behaviors at Your Company

• What You Can Do About It:  Observe, Reinforce, Intervene

• Why People Do What They Do

Safety Culture Change

Strategic Workshop to Change Safety Culture

 

Description

The culture and sub-cultures of an organization play an undeniable role in overall safety performance. Comprised of the “unspoken rules” and “taken-for-granted behaviors” that drive employees’ decisions and actions while at work, culture inevitably emerges out of the way that an organization operates. It can either grow wild and unmanaged – unpredictably influencing employee performance and elevating risk – or it can be understood and deliberately shaped to ensure that employees uphold the organization’s safety values.

Using a Human Factors approach to influencing employee performance, this Safety Culture Change workshop walks leaders through a process for:

  1. Identifying what their specific safety culture should look like
  2. What organizational constraints they need to account for
  3. What steps they will take for creating this culture
  4. How they will measure culture change

Who should attend?

→  Frontline Supervisors, Managers, and Executives (Full-day Track)

Course Details:

→  Half-day (4hr) and Full-day (8hr) tracks available

→  Individual & Team Problem Solving Exercises

→  Dynamic Practice

→  Culture Change Worksheet

→  Post-Training Coaching Card


Lone Worker in Context™

Influencing Those Who Work Alone

 

Description

People who perform their work alone provide a very specific challenge to safety: How do we make sure they work safely?

They don’t have anyone around to watch their back or intervene when they are engaging in unsafe actions, which means “self intervention” is required.  “Self Intervention” is the process of evaluating your own personal context, especially when you are alone, to determine the contextual factors that are currently driving your decision making while also evaluating risks and determining an approach to risk mitigation prior to engaging in the activity.

Lone Worker training is designed for both front-line workers and those who manage lone workers.  Participants will gain an understanding of the science of Human Factors and engage in exercises that will help lone workers understand how they can intentionally develop the habit of “self intervention”.

Who should attend?

→  Frontline employees (Half-day Track)

→  Frontline Supervisors, Managers, Safety Representatives and Safety Directors (Full-day Track)

Course Details:

→  Half-day (4hr) 

→  Individual & Group Problem Solving Exercises

→  Dynamic Practice

→  Skills-based

Participant Resources:

→  Participant Guidebook (graphically detailed for the visual learner)

→  Post-Training Reference Card


Safety Leadership

Skills for Leading Teams Safely

 

Description

Research has proven that front-line leadership has a distinct and measurable impact on the safety culture within an organization.  Left to chance, supervisors and managers often unknowingly undermine the organization's desired culture.  SafetyCompass® Safety Leadership Training provides organizational leaders with the proven skills to create, modify, and reinforce the behaviors that are consistent with a high performing safety culture.

This 2 day course will start with our award winning SafetyCompass® Intervention™ training.  The second day will focus on the leadership skills that are the basis of our Best Boss training.  After the two day training your supervisors and managers will have an understanding of the background science of Human Factors, a set of skills to intentionally change behaviors, and supervisory skills that will make them not only better safety leaders, but leaders in every aspect of their job.
