Sustaining a safe working environment is, and always has been, something we factor into every company decision. Before anything else, we want to be confident that unsafe practice is being flagged without hesitation.
All Flannery operators are issued with an OperateSafe card as part of their on-boarding. This card acts as a reminder to put safety and wellbeing first and STOP any activity that could lead to harm to themselves or others.
Safety is one of our core business values. It is a key focus and drives existing behaviour and behavioural change across our teams. Creating a consistent safety culture is key to our Zero harm ambition and we are constantly looking for ways to communicate this message with our teams.
As part of this program, Flannery have implemented Observation / Suggestion Cards to ensure we capture good practice and also have a process to manage risk and improve procedures.
Please share your observations with us. Your observations are important to help us continuously improve our safety culture and performance, but above all else, they keep the workforce safe.
Don’t Forget The Five Mental Tools
Alpha is a state of mind which we experience as daydreaming. We spend up to 47% of our waking hours in this state. The time we spend in Alpha cannot be controlled. Therefore, it is important to take control or our working environment.
Habits are an Automatic Subconscious Routine (ASR), things that we do without thinking. Up to 90% of everything we do is a habit. Habits can be incredibly useful or can put us at risk. The challenge is that either way they are carried out without judgement. Think about your habits at work and communicate with people about habits
Time V Risk (TVRI)
Human beings are “hard-wired’ to save time and energy. We’ll take the shortest, quickest route pretty much every time. Take a moment to check that you’re not putting yourself or others at risk for the sake of saving a minute of time.
Personal Risk Perception (PRP)
A natural human tendency to believe that “it won’t happen to me”. We’re much better at seeing risks that other people take. Look after yourself and look after each other whilst we are at work.
Communication & Leading By Example
