Presenting SIMPLE, agenda-driven & step-by-step Behavior-Based Safety
SIMPLE STEPS draw individual workers into greater awareness and involvement
- JOB SAFETY ANALYSIS
Break down a task into specific steps, then consider potential risks associated with each step to eliminate or mitigate the hazard.
- TARGET SAFETY TAILGATE MEETINGS
Many work assignments start each day with some type of tailgate meeting. S.T.A.R.T. blends daily safety awareness, learning and last minute risk assessment into the meeting. Altogether the component is called Target Safety.
- LAST MINUTE RISK ASSESSMENT
The concept of making a “last minute” risk assessment has a range of applications – all beneficial. Take a moment before beginning the work to look around – one more time – for anything that could go wrong.
- JOB SAFETY OBSERVATION POCKET CARDS
This is a behavior-based safety component that gives each worker a written tool and opportunity to do an anonymous reality check, looking for both “safe” and “at-risk” situations at the work site in real time.
- NEAR-MISS REPORTING & IDENTIFICATION
Near-misses cannot be “left to luck.” They must be reported and investigated to prevent reoccurrences. It’s part of S.T.A.R.T.
- STOP WORK AUTHORITY
Stop Work Authority gives EVERYONE on a job site the authority and responsibility to ensure their own safety and the safety of others while at work.
S.T.A.R.T. TM (Safe Today And Return Tomorrow TM) was developed by Safety Advantage to heighten individual awareness, hazard recognition and personal involvement in daily workplace safety.
It is a coordinated integration of proven strategies that each worker can use to look beyond routine situations and complacencies.
S.T.A.R.T.TM gives your company a simple behavior-based program that makes sense to employees. It adds meaning and personal value to all of your safety, hazard recognition and incident prevention initiatives.
At the same time, S.T.A.R.T.TM helps any subcontractor fulfill the requirements or preferences of host employers who are looking for a valid job safety observation process.
