ORGANIZING A SAFETY COMMITMENT EVENT
All employees sign a banner with a commitment to safety.
Chose a commitment (i.e. “Our work is never so urgent or important that we cannot take time to do it safely”, “All injuries are preventable”, “All responsible for each other’s safety”, “Excellence in safety leads to excellence in business”.) that is best fitted for the culture of your yard and make a big banner where all workers can come around, in one big group or as sub teams. You can combine this moment with the diffusion of the safety day video from our CEO.
Ask workers to simply sign or write a small commitment before signing. They should take a moment to do it seriously. Give the opportunity to all participants to discuss this commitment and reflect on it before and after.
The banner should stay in place for a time after the safety day.
