4 Ways to Build a Safety Culture in Your Organisation
At Fuelfix & Tanks2Go, safety is one of the primary values we adhere to. In order to build a safety culture within your organisation, harnessing these four crucial strategies can help you establish a commitment to health, safety security and the environment.
1. Learn Safe
Your values should always begin with the wellbeing of your employees, contractors, customers, and the communities and environment in which you operate in. It’s imperative to take responsibility for management practices that minimise any adverse health, safety, security or environmental impacts. You should also do your part to enhance the benefits associated with your activities, products or services.
To help maintain this, at Fuelfix & Tanks2Go, we have an HSSE management system for our activities known as Learn Safe. By providing a structured set of controls for managing HSSE, we help personnel at all levels manage risks by delivering processes that help them understand the importance.
2. Plan Safe
Having an expert team skilled in tailoring preventative maintenance programs for clients can help increase equipment lifespan and ensure less unplanned downtime. Their expertise also helps to ensure that all solutions strictly adhere to and exceed Australian standards.
At Fuelfix & Tanks2Go, our in-house team of engineers specialise in tailoring solutions for the hydrocarbon industry. Industry-trained to factor in the variables relevant to the environment such as identifying the truly critical components, typical operating conditions and the optimum frequency of inspections — their duties are aimed at keeping the systems operating efficiently and safely within legislative requirements.
3. Make Safe
By developing processes and technologies to ensure efficiency, you can help increase safety simultaneously. Providing your team with regular training so they are up-to-date with the latest from the industry, you can procure the best quality parts and equipment while remaining cautious but profitable.
At Fuelfix & Tanks2Go, our leaders engage and empower our people to address unsafe or hazardous situations and carry out their work in a manner that does not present a risk to themselves, others or the environment. These practices in facility management help us to maintain a lucrative process that promotes a functional and safe environment.
4. Be Safe
For a safety culture to be successful it needs to be led from the top down and embraced and practised by the leaders, for the rest to follow. Fuelfix & Tanks2Go founder and MD, Mark Westbrook, repeatedly reinforces that every employee has the right to hit the “stop button” for any activity which might seem unsafe. Implementing precautions and ensuring that employees and leaders alike are following protocol is the easiest way to monitor and enforce safety throughout the organisation.
Sourcing a reliable People Services team to work tirelessly to ensure that all employees are appropriately inducted, fit for work and supported to maintain a healthy lifestyle can help promote a safe working culture. Providing a flexible work policy also ensures that everyone can achieve a work-life balance that suits both parties.
Achieve Safety in Operations
Implementing all these strategies together ensures that people can work with more focus, more commitment and contribute to the collaboration between teams and stakeholders.
Undoubtedly, ensuring safety in operations is hard work, but you do not have to do it alone. With the right partner, keeping equipment and people safe can be a hassle-free process.
