Join Dr. @juditherickson , @daverebbitt and @jimloud as they discuss the effect Organizational Behavior and Corporate Culture has on Safety Management and Practices.
This discussion provides a better understanding of the philosophical shift that is occurring in the treatment of employees. From initially being viewed and treated as extensions of machines, employees are increasingly being seen as contributing members of the organization. This discussion will emphasize the effect of corporate culture on safety performance, thereby further exploring the dynamics of this shift.
During this discussion we cover:
- - Appreciating the role of corporate culture knowledge and concepts in order to increase safety performance
- - Understanding the need for simultaneous top-down and bottom-up approaches
- - Addressing the common goal of a big picture, thereby breaking down silos
- - Unifying different perspectives and viewpoints
