Getting to Zero: Practical Strategies on Meeting Zero-Incident Goals through Successful Process Indicators - On-Demand
Webinar is now available on-demand.
Many companies consider setting a zero-incident goal for their safety program without really understanding exactly what that could or should mean. What seems like a very logical and noble approach, it could actually neglect to address real areas that help to cultivate and sustain long term and successful performance.
In fact, many experts who have studied a zero incident goal approach point out that several risks may result--for instance underreporting, non-reporting and, when an incident does occur, a complete deflation of the safety program since the goal is now unachievable. And, if incentives and bonuses are tied to a zero incident goal, things will definitely get more complicated in these areas.
Although setting a zero-incident goal may be appropriate for your organization, it is important that management seriously considers how best to proceed for sustainable, long-term success. Take the time today to understand what is truly involved in setting a zero-incident goal: the establishment and management of process indicators--including training, behavior observation, and inspections-- that can help catapult your organization to superior world-class safety performance if established correctly.
