Common job issues and solutions in Quality & Safety

Trying to Improve Safety with the Pen


Many companies try to improve safety performance by hanging posters, banners and slogans for employees to read. While these reminders may show your organization that you want improved safety results – the only way to truly create a safety culture in an organization is to demonstrate it.   Managers and executives need to practice safe acts on the job floor.  Great companies create environments where safety thrives on its own.   Create a safety observation program involving both management and front line employees.  Have regular safety meetings with all levels of the organization. Report all incidents and near misses, no matter how insignificant – and investigate each with thorough root cause analysis techniques like “5 Why’s!”
