Building a Safety Culture

Success in safety, driven by universal participation helps to build a continuously improving safety culture. Central to this is Enerflex’s Performance-Based Safety programs, which include:

  • Behaviour-Based Performance – This is designed to elevate overall safety standards and improve the safety culture through employee engagement, safety conversations, and standard operating methods;
  • Hazard Identification – Individual employees identify possible hazards and alert management, creating a cycle of continuously improving worksite safety. The safety culture includes everyone actively seeking and engaging in corrective action that avoids or eliminates hazards. The overall process includes pre-job hazard assessment, which identifies hazards and establishes controls for all workplace tasks prior to starting work, and Job Hazard Analysis, a technique of systematically analyzing tasks for safety, and health risks, putting controls in place to mitigate the risk and re-evaluating the task for effectiveness of control; and
  • "Time-Out" Authority – This gives every employee the responsibility and authority to stop work when an unsafe act or condition could result in an undesirable event, in a “stop, notify, correct, and resume” approach.

Paired with these programs is continuous internal communication that is structured and oriented to avoiding hazards and improving safety performance. This includes:

  • Relevant and wide-ranging daily safety topics, often drawn from actual events;
  • Pictorially-driven best and poor practices linked to real-world situations;
  • Topical safety posters;
  • Monthly statistical reporting to senior management, business units and other internal stakeholders;
  • Monthly general safety meetings at field locations and manufacturing facilities, sharing information from other locations and departments;
  • A quarterly newsletter specific to the activities within the region; and
  • Structured safety committee meetings, involving management and employee representatives, with follow-up and corrective actions assigned.
