Encouraging a Culture of Safe Production

May 27, 2020

A healthy dose of performance pressure is crucial for maintaining optimal levels of production. However, problem arise when levels of production pressure increase to the point that the focus on production starts to overshadow the importance of safe behaviours. Recent Australian data has found that 28% of workers report experiencing pressure from their direct supervisor to prioritise production over safety. Of those, 40% report experiencing this pressure on a weekly basis*. In an environment where supervisors prioritise production over safety, it’s not a question of if an incident will occur, but when and how serious.

In this webinar we explored:

  • The impact of production pressure on safety behaviour and safety climate
  • How to improve leaders’ safety leadership skills to balance safety and production pressure for optimum business outcomes
