How to Develop an End of Shift Work Restoration Checklist

Purpose of the End of Shift Work Restoration Checklist:

The purpose of this end of shift workplace restoration checklist / to-do list is to restore the working area back to safe working conditions.  Culturally, enforcing a behavior (daily restorations), changes attitudes (safety first versus production first), which resonates with an existing value (people’s safety is important).

10 Steps to Create Restoration Checklist:

1. Have a developed balanced scorecard where you can report on the safety audit results.

2. Have a plan to develop a weekly audit to check safety conditions confirming restorations are effective.

3. Gather the right people in the room.

4. Identify the ideal safe working area.

5. List steps that can be taken daily to restore that area to meet the ideal.

6. Reword those steps to sound like “To-Do” items.

7. Develop those To-Do items into a form to be checked-off at the end of every shift.

8. Flow the newly formed checklist to other supervisors, managers, (all stakeholders) and record adjustments.

9. Negotiate all changes.

10. Perform the first restoration and develop the weekly audit to support the restoration checklist.

Now that you’ve developed your first safety restoration checklist you’ll need to assign roles and responsibilities (who is going to perform the checklist).  Also assign the responsibility to the supervisor (depending on your organization) to check that the workplace is being restored according to the checklist.   Plan to develop the safety audit, which will support you daily restorations and link frontline efforts to your balanced scorecard.  Pilot the first restoration checklist for sometime, make adjustments, and repeat the process in the next area.

    Hello there! This article could not be written much better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept preaching about this. I most certainly will forward this information to him. Fairly certain he will have a very good read. Many thanks for sharing!
