Achieving a World Class Safety Culture through Employee Involvement
A series of workshops offering a unique approach to transforming workplace safety culture
TeamEverest Safety developed out of thirty years’ experience in adult experiential learning, changing behaviour in organizations, boosting organizational effectiveness. We had a client who found that traditional approaches to safety performance were no longer having any meaningful effect – they asked us for an experiential approach. The result was TeamEverest Safety, unique in the field – and we are finding it is addressing an industry-wide challenge: so many companies finding that injury incident rates stubbornly refuse to shift.
Objective: A Paradigm Shift in Improving Safety Performance
From: focusing solely on engineering or operator/worker error
To: focusing on the culture and management systems that influence safety behavior; using the position of leadership to empower employees
TeamEverest Safety is designed for safety leaders who advocate for employee-led safety efforts in their organizations. They will be equipped with tools for coaching others in their organization to achieve breakthrough safety performance through employee-led safety culture change.
Unique: TeamEverest Safety Focuses On:
Strong Experiential Component
