SafeStart is a new Human Error Prevention programme that has achieved a consistent 60-90% reduction in workplace incidents within 6-12 months of its implementation.
The next step: SafeStart is the next step in the safety journey, because it deals specifically with unintentional and habitual 'at risk' behaviours, which cause injury to everyone at work, at home and on the road.
Safestart goes beyond current programmes by teaching individuals how to use their brain as personal protective equipment, and to take responsibility for their own safety.
This is different from Safety Leadership (where the supervisor or manager tries to influence an individual's behaviour), or Behaviour Based Safety (where the co-worker tries to influence an individual's behaviour).
The full SafeStart programme: Although significant benefits can be achieved with just the 5 core units within a 6 month period, there is training material for 4 years, ensuring that the gains made are sustainable, rather than being a flavour-of-the-month phenomenon.
All participants receive workbooks, DVDs to take home and share with their families, as well as free access to the online course.
More than 2 million people have been trained in SafeStart at more than 2000 organisations (7000 sites) in over 40 countries.
SafeTrain Pty Ltd, an Australian safety consultancy, has been granted exclusive rights to bring SafeStart to Australia.
Safety Leadership - The supervisor or manager tries to influence an individual's behaviour.
Behaviour Based Safety - The co-worker tries to influence an individual's behaviour.
Human Error Prevention (SafeStart) - Each individual is given the tools to influence their own behaviour.
“Why Aren’t We At Zero Harm Yet?”
‘Zero harm’ means no fatalities, no recordable injuries and no first aid cases because anything that results in an injury, irrespective of how minor it is, causes ’harm’.
In order to ensure there are no first aid cases, we need to ensure there are no close calls or near misses. In order to ensure there are no close calls or near misses, we need to ensure there are no ‘at risk’ behaviours, including the most common source - unintentional and habitual ones.
