Listen for improved safety performance
It’s a fact - People who feel heard are much more likely to listen to you. It runs this way in society as it does at work.
Effective leaders make things happen and the best way to make things happen is to engage with staff. It comes at no surprise that the best way to do this is to listen to what they have to say.
This can be difficult when there are tens, hundreds or thousands of staff to listen to. But there are tools to help. Safety climate diagnostic tools provide leaders with the insights they need to make change meaningful and more importantly, ensure that staff buy-in to the change.
If you’re a leader and you’re looking to improve your safety performance, I recommend that you adopt a safety diagnostic tool to help you listen and reach the hearts and minds of the people you’re trying to keep safe.
Generative HSE’s Safety Climate Survey tool is designed to help organisations to measure safety climate, motivations, perceptions and self-rated behavior. It has been developed and refined over the past 10 years by a highly regarded team of Nordic occupational safety researchers and has been subjected to rigorous academic and field reviews.
