Safety is for real !

"Getting hurt is part of the business"

"There was nothing we could have done to prevent it"

bullet

"He brought it on himself"

bullet

"It's not our fault"

bullet

"It was an act of God"

How often such phrases are uttered when we hear on the news that someone has been hurt or killed in an industrial accident. 

But usually those close to the accident or involved in the chain of command feel a deep sense of personal responsibility, even guilt, for not having done something - anything - to avert the suffering endured by the victim.

The good news is : ACCIDENTS ARE NOT INEVITABLE

bullet

The uncomfortable news is : THEY ARE THE RESULT OF ACTS OR OMISSIONS OF LINE MANAGEMENT

Effective management of safety will dramatically reduce injuries and deaths in a demonstrable fashion.  People will go home healthy to their families who would otherwise not. 

The responsibility of line management for the safety of the workforce is awesome.  

Tallrite can help you develop and implement a safety management system that works. 

How Tallrite can help

Tallrite will work closely with your management team to help you to develop :

bullet

The principles of a safety management system (SMS) for your business;

bullet

Indicators to measure whether your safety is improving or getting worse (it never stays the same);

bullet

A safety plan based on the SMARTI principle (Simple, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-based, Impactful);

bullet

A communication plan to involve all your staff;

bullet

A system for periodically auditing the extent to which your business is implementing your safety plan. 

We can also help you to :

bullet

Investigate accidents and near misses to determine their underlying causes and develop recommendations, either leading or participating in the investigation team; 

bullet

Troubleshoot particular safety problems or situations in order to develop remedial measures.

Capabilities

Our staff have many years of experience in safety management.  This has mainly been gained in the very hazardous oil and gas exploration and production business in various parts of the world - in jungles, deserts and seas as well as urban areas.   The paradox of hazardous industries is that they are forced to practice sophisticated ways of managing safety and as a result they often end up with better safety performance than other industries.  See, for example, the accident rate of the global Oil & Gas Drilling Industry compared with other heavy industries.
