Today we ask…
Do you learn from your mistakes?
Your company can develop a positive health and safety culture, based around growth, progression, and development, by being able to learn from mistakes.
While it is important to be proactive, in the ways of identifying potential hazards, and implementing appropriate safety measures, we appreciate that accidents may still happen.
Being reactive after any mistakes, accidents, or near misses means that progression is always at the forefront. It is always a priority.
It is important to fully investigate any accidents and near misses in order to understand the root cause, enabling you to find appropriate solutions.
Including employees in the adaptation of any processes and procedures, as well as communicating any findings is vital. It ensures that the intended changes are agreed and are therefore, are more likely to be incorporated into day-to-day operations.
Having regular reviews of processes and procedures can be a great way of identifying areas of improvements before mistakes are made, or accidents occur. It can show employees that you care that you are forward thinking, and that you have their best interests and safety in mind. This in turn, can make employees themselves more vigilant and aware of potential hazards, and can encourage the raising of concerns from everyone within the company.
