Topic: What’s the Safety System have to do with cultural change?
More information about this 30 Second Coaching topic:
At the supervisor level, the OE Safety System introduces a weekly audit to be performed before or after a shift. Some operational purposes of the safety audit include:
- Closes the PDCA cycle of the daily restoration checklist (if the restorations are performed daily, this should reflect positive audit scores)
- Generates problem solving from safety “hits” (when there is a problem, i.e. a “hit” on the audit form — start a problem solving sheet)
- Reports a score to the next layer of management (the group leaders’ visual management and check that the audit is being performed and a snapshot of the safety condition of the area). Again, a missed target on the audit score generates a problem solving sheet.
