Survey Results

Question 1
Your first task is to assess the current safety culture level of company N. You decided to design a BBS survey to be conducted at the company. You intend to design your questions based on three elements below: 
1. Leadership
2. People
3. Process
Design FIFTEEN (15) questions (5 questions per element) for this survey. Collect at least FIVE (5) samples of data from the survey. Evaluate, analyse and present your data in the form of charts or diagrams and discuss the results. You are to derive the formula for calculating safety culture and determine the safety culture value from this survey.
Question 2
After viewing their observation methodology and tools, you proceed to develop an observation checklist that is tailored to the nature of their job.
Create a behavioural based checklist suitable for the production line covering the following identified attributes:
1. Body use
2. Tools and equipment
3. Personal protection equipment 
Illustrate at least FIVE (5) elements under each attribute.
Question 3
In order to raise awareness of the BBS program and provide a guideline for its implementation, design a BBS standard operating procedure (SOP) for the company. 
Using a standard SOP format, develop a BBS SOP and explain how BBS processes can be implemented and maintained for Company N. Discuss if the various workplaces (operation rooms, production line, warehousing, loading bay, etc.) are able to either use the same SOP, or if each requires its own SOP.
Question 4
You realised that company N’s BBS program will not be effective unless it utilises analysis tools to solve their at-risk behaviour problems. Hence, you decided to teach the BBS working committee to apply the ABC analysis. To reinforce the knowledge, you decided to give an illustration of the model based on actual problems.
Conduct the ABC analysis for Company N. Illustrate TWO (2) at-risk behaviours from the production line and warehouse (one from each location). Present both answers onto TWO (2)separate ABC analysis templates.
Question 5
After the BBS program is developed and implemented for a period of time, the site will need to conduct a BBS sustainability assessment to determine if the BBS program will continue to run or it will gradually become obsolete. As the BBS facilitator, design a BBS sustainability matrix for the site.
The table below contains five BBS sustainability factors against five BBS sustainability levels in ascending order. Explain how each factor serves as indicators of BBS program sustainability. In each box, describe the conditions or observations that the organisation should have in order to be classified in that sustainability level against each factor.

  5. None of the Above

Based on the facts given in the current case study the results of the survey gives us an indication that the safety culture model of the organization is in a pathological model (Mathis, 2013). A paradigm shift in policies and the approaches is required.

Most of our responses can be judged on the scale of Likert, where we tried to check the attitude of the respondents in the process (Azzara, 2010). The facts presented in the prescribed case study also gave us certain insights connected to the safety culture of the organization.

For the leadership part, we were having a sample of more than 300 people.

Most of the respondents believe that the organization follows a reactive safety model based culture (McNally, 2018). This culture is not solution oriented and it shows that they are not prepared for the mishaps and other accidents.

Question-related to the WCH priority also gives us an indication that leadership or the top brass and the executive brass of the organization are unaware of the safety threats.

The second and the third part of the survey were aimed at 1300 employees working in the assembly lines and the transportation sector. The accident safety ratio of the organization is healthy. However, the same cannot be said about the preparedness of the team members (Vassie, 2009).

In the above graph, we can see the responses connected to the roles of the supervisors. Most of the respondents reacted that they never received any safety based instruction from the supervisors (Grice, 2009). We should not forget that shoe components are highly inflammable articles. Fire safety hazard is one area where they need to work hard. In the similar fashion, there are no retiring rooms in the sight. It is true that they are giving proper breaks to the drivers. However, the absence of the retiring room denotes a lack in the quality of the rest (Brebbia, 2012). The rest can help them in getting back their energy levels and it will support the cause of the safety based behavior quite considerably.

The implementation of the standard operating procedures

The operations of the company N can be divided into two main areas. The first area is the production area where 1300 workers are making different parts of the shoes. The second area is the transportation line where they are constantly delivering the goods and using the local road network. Ideally, the company should come up with two different SOP Guidelines for each area (Sutton, 2014).

Safety Culture in Company N

The first SOP guideline should be implemented for the production area or the factory area. It should start with the unloading of the raw material prior to the finished work and it should end with the loading of the prepared goods (Moylan, 2017).

  • Every shift should have an active observer collecting the feedback from the employees working.
  • The fitness of all the safety equipment should be checked on a regular interval.
  • Random checking of some employees should be done on a regular basis.
  • Every new entrant should be given a due training for safety-related norms.
  • Checklists should be provided to all the employees, it should become mandatory for them to fill out the checklist before starting their job.
  • Additional time should be given to every employee for the collection of the safety gears and putting them back in the closet after the use.
  • During a shift, an employee should take two breaks. First, break after the first half of the work and second break during the second half of the work.
  • An active observer should be appointed and he should keep a check on the activities with the help of a paper trail(Dennis Parker, 2013).
  • A fire safety survey should be done at regular intervals.
  • The active observer should make sure that drivers are not working in long shifts.
  • The status of the amenities in the retiring room should be checked after regular intervals.
  • An internal department to check the fitness of the vehicles should be maintained.
  • The checklists of the fitness of a vehicle should be collected and examined by the active observer.  
  • A separate team for the first response can also be installed to support both the areas.
  • A fire safety survey should be done after regular intervals.

The objective behind the implementation of the SOP is clear. An active observer should be appointed and he should work on the merits of the check and balance (Barat, 2017). The paperwork associated with the SOP guidelines will help the observer in evaluating the success of the program. Most of the recommendations made in the SOP are habit forming. The formation of a habit for the safety can be considered as the primary objective of any BBS exercise.

In the above diagram, we can have a look at the fire safety hazard in the production area of the plant. Intrinsic factors like certain steps of the processes can invite fire safety hazards. Apart from it external factors like smoking habits of an employee can also do the same thing. The nature of the intervention changes based on the needs, in the current case, we can see that smoking habits of an employee can be tackled differently because we can remove the obstacle or the reason (Blair, 2014). However, we cannot compromise on the process that we are undertaking. This is why we are giving it the term of consequence mitigation instead of consequence removal.

In the above-mentioned diagram, we can see that in the absence of a fitness test vehicles can become prone to the accidents. In order to mitigate this condition, the company can hire the services of a garage for the maintenance of the vehicles. They can also make it mandatory for the drivers to accompany their vehicle during these fitness test and maintenance exercise.

Employee
Engagement

The communication gap between the employees and the observers. The absence of training manuals.

No safety accountability sharing.

The absence of a safety hazard checklist and the paperwork.

Inactive observers taking only implementing plans on a theoretical level. The culture of the reaction is prevailing. No contingency planning. Paperwork is done but the implementation is missing.

Partially active observers. Going for random checks and balances and communicating with the employees. The regular conductance of the safety hazard surveys. Safety accountability sharing is present but the distribution of the accountability is uneven.

Active observers working in the direction of developing a safety culture and BBS environment. Introduction of the latest safety measures is done on a regular basis.

Accountability matrix is clear and everyone is aware of his role.

Proactive environment to handle the mishaps. BBS reporting culture is present and paperwork is in place.

Employees are aware of their accountability and they are aware of the Domino model or cheese model or any other model under which they are functional.  

Knowledge

Sharing

The absence of a goal and safety objective document. The absence of a rule book connected to the safety hazards. The absence of checklists and other necessary procedures that allow the enablement of an ABC approach. Absence

Safety Goals and objectives are mentioned on the walls of the work area.

Warning signs and other instructions during the emergency are present. Separate BBS department is functional but not relying on paperwork. Reporting culture and feedback culture is not present.

Safety goals and objectives are an important part of the employee training. Warning signs are present on the venue. Alongside the instructions. BBS department is getting random feedbacks on the security status. Reporting culture is activated but the intervals are long.

Safety goals and objective are a complete chapter in the employee training, demos are available. Warning signs and the checklists are a part of the day to day culture.

Employees are participating in the feedback sharing sessions on a regular basis. The sharing of the feedbacks is taking place after short intervals.

Safety goals and objectives are of primary importance and they are conducting mock drills to bring in this culture.

Active observes are checking and balancing the processes. Observers are making meaningful reports based on the feedback and reporting culture. The up gradation of the safety features is taking place on a regular basis (Christina Rudin-Brown, 2013).

Management

Commitments

No space for the safety concerns. No allocation for safety hazards in the regular budget. No promotion of the BBS culture. The lethargic approach towards safety based rules.

The commitment of the BBS practice as a regulation from the side of Government and other agencies. Adherence to the safety norms dictated by the external bodies. For instance, heavy machinery carries their safety manuals. The minuscule budget for the safety-related allocations.  

Adherence to the BBS practices as a norm set by the government, value addition to the main practices. Adherence to the norms dictated by the external bodies and conductance of internal safety survey under the norms dictated by the other bodies. Allotment of a decent budget for the safety-related concerns.

Adherence to the industry best practices in the direction of the safety. Formation and consistent review of the safety policy. Regular surveys to keep a check on the latest practices and removal of the shortcomings. A substantial part of the budget is allocated for the safety concerns.

The culture of rewarding good safety standards and punishment for the loose ends. Regular upgrade of the safety solutions. Constitution of BBS as a main independent body in the organizational structure.  

Continuous

Improvement

The absence of a feedback culture. The absence of a reporting culture. Analysis of the accidents and other shortcomings is missing.

Reporting culture for extraordinary events. Analysis of the accidents and shortcomings after long intervals. Renewal of BBS culture safety guidelines after long intervals.

Quick reporting and removal culture for extraordinary events. In-depth analysis of the accidents and shortcomings. Formation of an action plan for the removal of the shortcomings.

In-depth analysis of the accidents. Regular audits of the reports for the probable weak areas where safety hazards can strike. Review of the safety-related practices on after short intervals. Quick responses on the feedbacks.

Regular audit of the feedbacks with an intention to anticipate probable safety hazard areas. Daily review of the safety-related hazards.

Stagnation

The lackluster approach towards the theoretical aspect of the BBS exercise.

In the absence of a proper reporting culture. Lack of evidence to review the worth of the BBS exercise.

The absence of R&D for the latest development in the field of BBS.

 Up gradation of the systems and regular audit of the feedbacks.

In touch with the latest and best industry-based services. The feedback culture at its top where the safety has become a habit.
