What Injury-Free is NOT:
- It is not the same as zero injuries
- It is not a goal, but rather a value
- It is not a guarantee
- It is not a prescription
- It is not the elimination of all risk
What Injury-Free IS:
- It is about caring for one another, and demonstrating that care on a daily basis.
- It is about all workers going home safely everyday.
- It is about a mindset intolerant of any level of injury.
- Taking responsibility for your own safety and those that work with you and around you.
- Being proactive and asking questions, such as what is the most dangerous thing that can happen to me while performing this task, and how can I mitigate this risk.
- Having a positive attitude of choosing to follow the safety rules and procedures.
- Speaking up and expressing your concern when you see something unsafe.
What our leaders should expect from us!
- If a task is not safe, do not perform the task or letter other employees perform the task.
- Speak up immediately if you see something unsafe. Have a voice!
- If you are unsure of something (gut feeling), stop work and speak up.
What we should expect from our leaders!
- Support, when someone does “stop work” or speak up.
- When a safety concern is brought to our attention, it should be addressed, corrected, mitigate, or communicated further up to management or customer.
- If an injury occurs, it will be investigated in such a way to not blame the injured.
- Individual commitment to safety, and intervene
- Preventing injury or loss
- Ignore it and we condone it
- Lead by example
- Learn from experience
- Support each other
- Drive the organization towards World Class Safety!
