Stand Up for Safety
GOAL ZERO SAFETY INITIATIVE RECAP: The first Management Leadership Team was trained and identified the company’s Safety Steering Team. The Safety Steering Team then identified the first Continuous Improvement (CI) Team and Project (Take 5 Take 2 Process). Next came the first round of SCEWs (Safety Culture Excellence Workshop) that were held at each Region in August with more to come in December. Extensive training on the program’s processes and procedures is required up-front for Cultural Transformation to occur. During the week of August 17th the CI Team met for the first Rapid Improvement Workshop (RIW). The CI Team reviewed the current process and identified what improvements could be made and developed the implementation plan. The team felt an improved process deserves a fresh start with a new name, Take Time for Safety. They will be surveying an identified pilot group on how the current process is performing. Then CI Team will pilot the improved process beginning in November. Once the pilot run is completed the CI Team will reconvene to review results and make final adjustments to the new process. The new Take Time for Safety process will be rolled out across all regions during the 2016 Safety Days.
