Our 6-Step ACTIVE Safety Coaching  Framework

This program will introduce you to ACTIVE Safety Coaching, a framework designed specifically to generate safety performance. The six steps involved in this coaching framework are Awareness, Communication, Trust, Interpretation, Vision and Engagement.

There is a significant difference between someone “believing safety is important” and “being a safety leader." By attending this program, you will be able to work with your teams and make safety part of their "way of being.”

Safety Coaching

Master our 6-Step ACTIVE Safety Coaching Method 

1. Awareness

Operators' cognitive biases and enemies of learning are critical factors that lead to poor safety decisions. In other words, they should be aware of their limitations and those of others to behave safely. Most importantly, such awareness should be available in every situation. In this module, you will learn how to help people align their perceptions of risk with your organization's acceptable level.

2. Communication

Safety coaching is essentially a conversation or a series of conversations that lead to a specific safety outcome. On the other hand, safety management systems direct people to comply with a set of rules. You will need different types of conversations to manage and coach for safety. In other words, a conversation for compliance is not the same as the one to generate commitment.

3. Trust

One of the leading factors that hinder an organization's safety performance is employees not reporting incidents. You can't make improvements to safety without identifying hidden systemic problems. For that, one needs trust in management, pride in what they do, and dignity. This module will teach you how to create a Just Culture that acknowledges and rewards the reporting of incidents.

4. Interpretation

One particular element that differentiates safety coaching conversations from safety advising is that it is non-judgmental. As a result, we can empathize with operators and understand the way they view risk. While the responsibility for changes that affect safety remains with the operator, we can get them to commit to specific, measurable, and time-bound goals and then follow up on them.

5. Vision

If you want to make your organization's safety vision a reality, actions are required, and actions require clarity of what, when, how, how often, and with whom. Determining and helping your employees adhere to these is part of creating the shared vision. We usually give out messages like "safety first" or "zero accidents," which are descriptive conversations. As a coach, you must use generative language and speech acts that can drive action. 

6. Engagement

Traditionally, a safety manager's responsibility has been assumed to be ensuring compliance. Therefore, he or she has often been perceived as a "safety-cop" by many. While this is part of the job, it is also the safety manager's responsibility to get buy-in from employees to support the organization's safety vision. In this role, safety coaching is an essential tool for you because its focus is on generating commitment rather than compliance.
