The main objective in any Safety Management programme should be the elimination of incidents and injuries. Reinforce a positive culture of safety in the Workplace, with Job Safety Observations.
An effort to reduce injuries, can result in decreased costs, increased productivity and improved employee morale. Research indicates that companies approach Job Safety Observation differently, some focussing on Behavioural Observation, whilst others encompass the facility where the job is undertaken, tools and machinery used and the people involved in a particular task.

Understand rationale for decisions and actions
