CASE STUDY: CULTURE BY DESIGN

Safety Leadership & Culture

ROLE:

LEAD SAFETY LEADERSHIP INTERVENTION PROGRAM

SCOPE OF WORK:

Design and Activate Safety Leadership culture intervention at all levels of the organization

After a number of critical incidents on site, Grit supported a copper mining, smelter and refinery operation to design and implement a Safety Leadership Intervention.

The intervention was designed to create a line in the sand for leaders to commit taking on a new approach to safety leadership, and implement whatever is needed on the ground to effect change. Gritsafe™ Leader workshops were conducted for leaders to declare their commitment to living the newly co-created safety leader covenants, and play an active, visible safety leader role. Heavy field coaching focused on leadership of safety, both social and technical, with Grit Leader Eyes™; What Do You See™ and ‘3 in a Row’ Coaching™ (3IROC™) programs for leaders, superintendents and supervisors, providing sustainable personal development. Results were measured through establishing baseline performance, tracking progress of individuals and consolidating reports on the organization’s journey towards achieving safety performance excellence.

VALUE DRIVER: CULTURE BY DESIGN

ASSET MANAGEMENT GM:

Leaders are now visible and asking more questions without blame and retribution. Workers are seeing and hearing of this change in commitment and feel more encouraged to speak up and escalate any potential hazards and acknowledge people for what they are doing well.

PROJECT MANAGER:

Field coaching interactive sessions were an eye opener, and adds great value to our Visible Field Leadership commitment. In the face of limited leadership capability, along with many other challenges you have provided professional and unwavering support that has made such a positive impact to achieving safe work performance and desired outcomes.
