The client was a large international engineering company with sites around the World. As a part of the worldwide project, we were asked to support a production site in Poland.
The client needed to strengthen a culture of safety consciousness and safe behaviour by getting the employees involved and participating rather than taking a passive role. They wanted to encourage proactive safety thinking with employees agreeing on rules which are more likely to be identified with and followed than those which have been imposed.
We delivered an initial workshop with the management team to introduce JSA (job safety analysis), a systematic safety tool, to identify and assess work-related risks, and agree on the process of delivery. Afterwards, the tool was introduced to all team leaders and managers in a series of workshops. Participants were able to try and learn the method in role plays. 3 months later, our consultant observed participants using JSA method in the workplace and gave them feedback with advice on how they could improve while discussing with their employees dangerous behaviors.
The training was delivered in Polish and English by two experienced trainers with psychological background. Both trainers have worked within production and transportation industry for over a decade and have a very good overview of the specifics of the polish market. This project and other safety culture projects are delivered in cooperation with MIT GmbH in Poland, Portugal and Spain and South America by a native speaking industrial psychologists.
