Fifteen ways to help people work even more safely and to reduce
"silly" production errors

What more can we do to ensure people don't get hurt and people don't
make silly mistakes that cause plant shutdowns?

Your people have been well trained, they're intelligent and they're
diligent. You've probably supplied the best equipment you know of and
you have the many procedures in place demanded by law and good

It's understandable if you think that to get further gains in safety
the effort you'll have to spend vast amounts of money and time.


Here are 15 practical, straightforward ways in which Profit
Improvers has been helping people and organisations improve their
safety even more. There is much more information available so just

A one-day workshop especially designed to uncover hidden obstacles
to an even greater safety culture - and then overcome them. A
pre-workshop exercise gets people thinking before the workshop and the
resulting handout saves time and generates discussion immediately. A
quick and enjoyable way to improve the safety culture on a rig,
platform or site.

Each participant is asked to choose the safest option from 15 unsafe
scenarios in a short survey. The survey is done in people's own time,

This one-day workshop will help managers and supervisors do even
more to protect their people. Not many people know about the
behavioural factors that cause accidents. Consequently, many managers
and supervisors unknowingly contribute to people not doing what they
KNOW they should do.

Nine small and linked steps help office staff and visitors work
safely. After discussion with you and a review of existing
office-based safety, Profit Improvers supplies practical and simple

parts of the system are a poster message from the most senior manager
on site to be displayed in reception, training of reception staff to
greet people with the best possible safety message, brief training of
secretarial staff (and others) who come to collect visitors to
reinforce the safety message as they are walking to the meeting venue,
a short 1.5-hour interactive discussion session for staff showing just
how easy it is to get hurt in the office and at home and a simple
awareness building onshore safety observation system.

Many safety observation systems have become moribund and are not
working as well as they could be. It is straightforward to re-energise
your SOS. Simplify the existing reporting and recording system
procedure and then in a 1.5-hour workshop coach people on the right
way to deal with unsafe/safe observations. There's NO need for long
and drawn out sessions with videos and workbooks!

to mentor those less experienced on a particular plant. There is a
self-study option.
