Job Safety Observations

Reinforce safe work practices

Observe employees and correct unsafe acts or conditions

Eliminate incidents and injuries

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.

Job Safety Observations can be used to:

Observe employees who are performing normal work activities

Understand rationale for decisions and actions

Reinforce safe work practices

Correct unsafe acts and conditions

Observations are an opportunity to point out the positive actions and situations and recognise opportunities for improvement
