Creating an Effective Safety Culture in a Manufacturing Workplace

Manufacturing Risk – There’s more to creating a safe workplace culture than simply stating rules and providing the correct protective equipment; it’s about instilling a mindset in which safety is always at the forefront and at the heart of every decision, policy and procedure. Only when safety is woven into every aspect of a workplace can it be a truly effective part of its culture.

Keep the following steps in mind while developing an effective safety culture:

1. Assess possible risks. The first step is to evaluate all the dangers that exist. This means looking at every task and taking note of the potential risks. Also, analyze past incidents and near misses to determine root causes and how to avoid them in the future.

2. Design a plan. Once the risks have been evaluated, it’s time to develop a plan that will eliminate or minimize them. A thorough plan will cover a number of potential risk areas, including buildings, equipment, the environment, employees, customers and vendors. Start by focusing on the risks that pose the greatest threat, identify solutions and resources, and create or update policies and procedures.

3. Implement the plan. Communicate the plan and its details through training, practices and drills. Make sure everyone is properly trained, from new hires to senior team members.

4. Monitor, evaluate and improve. Monitor the plan and collect feedback to determine its effectiveness. Regularly compare the team’s safety performance against the plan’s expectations. Make adjustments as necessary while also taking time to acknowledge and celebrate successes.

Being proactive about workplace safety can reduce accidents and injuries, improve productivity and contribute to an organization’s overall success.
