Having an injury free environment
is an achievable goal because
incidents are preventable.
“I cannot justify to myself making a profit if I hurt employees in the process.
Making safety a core value is the most visible sign that a company cares for employees.
A company can make all injuries preventable.”

Safety 24/7
People
Improving safety depends on
us as individuals expecting zero incidents.
LOGIC…and…REASON
Why do employees choose to take
actions that violate safety
procedures, put themselves at risk,
and ignore the possibilities that
their behaviors may cause them
serious injury and even death?
Straw Poll… Why not work safely?
1. We’ve always done it this way
2. We get mixed messages on priorities
3. Inconsistency of procedures
4. Incentives are poorly managed
Why do you work safely?
1. Safety is a part of my job.
2. I want to go home safely to my family
Safety is OUR Choice !
Level 4
Level 3
Level 2
Level 1
I comply with safety
… when it’s
convenient.
I comply with safety
because I have to.
I believe in safety
for my family and
me.
I believe in safety
for myself and
actively encourage
others to believe
in safety.
Level 1
I comply with safety … when it’s convenient.
“I know what I did was wrong, but it was okay. I wasn’t in danger.”
“If I’m doing it the way I’ve always done it and the way my
teammates do it and none of us have gotten hurt, how can you
say it’s risky?”
“I’m the kind of person who will get the job done no matter what.
You can count of me to come through for you right away.”
Level 2
I comply with safety because I have to.
“I think about safety because it is part of my job.”
“If we introduce a new safety rule and you tell me I have to do it,
then I’ll commit to you that I’ll do it.”
“When it isn’t regulated, I’ll do whatever is needed to get the
job done.”
“If safety is important to my supervisor and my organization,
then I’ll focus on it, too.”
Level 3
I believe in safety for my family and me.
“I use PPE at home and at work because it protects me from risk.”
“I follow safety rules because I believe in them. If I question a rule,
I’ll bring it up in a safety meeting.”
“I am open to having someone talk with me about my safety, but I
am more hesitant to initiate safety conversations with others.”
“Everyone makes his or her own personal decisions about safety.
It’s not my job to influence them.”
Level 4
I believe in safety for myself and actively
encourage others to believe in safety.
“Safety is an integral part of my life. My safety actions are as
important as my words.”
“I am passionate about making a difference relative to safety in our
company.”
“I don’t care what others think. If I feel it is the right thing to do
from a safety standpoint, I’ll fight for it.”
“I believe an incident-free workplace is achievable.”

Who
leads safety
in our work area?
Leadership …
Creating the environment where people
want to do what needs to be done.
When it comes to safety,
each of us are leaders
encouraging people to want to work safely.
Safety 24/7 Conversations
Feedback is the tool
our teammates have
for reminding us when
our old-school
and bullet proof
behaviors impact safety.
Conversations
Step 1 Observe.
Step 2 Accentuate the positive.
Step 3 Explore – Ask questions.
Step 4 Emphasize the consequences.
Step 5 Agree on future actions.
The consequences of not offering
feedback can be devastating …
it can literally be the difference
in life and death.
