Poster pack launched for workforce involvement in safety12 April 2011

To support safety managers and leaders in implementing effective workforce involvement programmes, the Energy Institute has launched a series of informative posters.

Its poster pack can be used as part of a wider workforce involvement campaign, geared to proactive health and safety management.

The posters tackle a number of themes, including: What stops you from communicating safety issues? What if you are the only person in your team who sees the risk? and What ideas do you have to improve safety?

The Energy Institute says they are designed to challenge general perceptions and provoke discussion among workers. The series also includes space to capture comments to contribute to workforce involvement schemes.

Commenting on the posters, Rob Miles, head of human and organisational factors, Offshore Division, HSE, says: "The workforce are closest to the risks and have so much valuable experience to contribute on how tasks can be done safely.

"This is particularly true on some older installations where the operators and management may have changed several times and some unique operational experience can only be found through workforce involvement."

Miles makes the point that engagement of the workforce through effective involvement underpins the creation and maintenance of a good safety culture.
