THE SAFETY HINDSIGHT FACTOR


Keeping it simple. Keeping it safe.

Throughout the world employers are increasingly aware of the necessity to create a safe working environment. From mining, to transport, to manufacturing - in every kind of business and industry - employers are now legally and morally obliged to protect their employees from injury in the workplace.

 

What if your business could implement a safety program that was inexpensive, simple and could be applied to every kind of task? A safety program that really worked, saving workers from injury, thousands of dollars in insurance payouts, time lost through absenteeism and even human lives.

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Key Statistics from the International Labour Organisation

Each year around 350,000 deaths occur from workplace accidents.

Each year, approximately 4% of the world’s GDP is lost through absenteeism, medical treatment, disability and survivor benefits because of workplace accidents.

INTRODUCING A COMPLETELY NEW
OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY PROGRAM


Protect your employees and move your industry into the future.

There’s a hundred and one training packages out there in the marketplace to choose from. Each one is different. Each one claims to be designed to suit your business.

 

THE SAFETY HINDSIGHT FACTOR works for everybody.

 

What is THE SAFETY HINDSIGHT FACTOR?

 

Accidents in the workplace are not a mystery. We know why they’ll happen and quite often we know when they’ll happen. Yet when an accident does occur, you’ll often hear the cry go up … “if only I’d known” or “with hindsight I would have done that differently”. The fact is we do have the advantage of hindsight when it comes to workplace safety. What we don’t do is use that hindsight. THE SAFETY HINDSIGHT FACTOR simply and effectively utilises that knowledge. It turns hindsight into foresight.

 

THE SAFETY HINDSIGHT FACTOR is the only safety program that features a unique electronic approach (implemented with mobile phones) that is used by an employee as a checklist to assess his or her own safety each time a task is attempted. This then feeds back information to the employer, enabling better safety monitoring in the workplace.

Air travel, despite the risks, is the safest form of transport. Why? Because it’s one of the few workplaces where nothing is left to chance. Each and every time before a pilot takes off, he or she goes through a routine checklist. It’s this simple routine that THE SAFETY HINDSIGHT FACTOR applies to safety training.

 

THE SAFETY HINDSIGHT FACTOR incorporates two basic learning principles.

  1. Simplicity
  2. Repetition

Just how much information can people absorb? Instead of overloading employees with do’s and don’ts of safety, THE SAFETY HINDSIGHT FACTOR has condensed the basic rules of safety down to four. It’s a checklist which can be easily remembered and applied.

 

Reduced to its most basic form it can be compared to being taught, as a child, to cross a road. “Look to the right, look to the left and look to the right again”. This is repeated again and again until it becomes an automatic response which stays with us all our lives. Simple, yet effective. THE SAFETY HINDSIGHT FACTOR is just as simple … every time a person performs a task they ask themselves four questions …

  1. Do I know what I’m doing?
  2. What could go wrong?
  3. If I perform this task, could anyone else get hurt?
  4. Is there a chance of causing harm to the environment?

These questions are the guiding principle behind THE SAFETY HINDSIGHT FACTOR. They are the bedrock upon which all training and safety needs are based.

 

Every time an employee asks themselves these questions they are effectively pausing to think about what they’re doing. They’re taking time to look around them and consider the consequences of their actions. This is critical to safe work practices. But how do you get employees to think about what they’re doing before they act. This is where the unique electronic “checklist” comes in. Even when the task is one with which they’re familiar (and research shows that this is when most accidents are likely to happen) employees still have to ask the 4 critical questions and answer them before they can proceed. If they can’t answer all four questions then THEY SHOULDN’T ATTEMPT THE TASK. It really is that simple.

THE GOLDEN RULES


This same electronic approach may also be used to encourage adherence to a company's standard operating procedures. We refer to the configuration, described above, as the “Safety Quiz”, whilst we refer to this configuration, the reinforcement of standard operating procedures, as the “Golden Rules”.

THE PACKAGE

THE SAFETY HINDSIGHT FACTOR package includes a DVD (which can be either a generic version or tailored to your business); printed material explaining how best to utilise the program and the electronic “checklist”, which we have called the “H.E.A.D”.
