These new offerings will help clients build forward-thinking culture strategies that target the underlying drivers of safety and performance.
Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
For organizations, especially those in high-risk industries, countless safety violations and injuries occur every day despite technological advancements and increased attention from employers, unions and safety professionals. When these violations occur, organizations tend to react to the readily observable causes at the expense of trying to fully understand the underlying causes, resulting in a “pendulum effect” where the organization’s collective focus oscillates back-and-forth between safety and financial performance over time. High vigilance that follows a major incident eventually gives way to increasing pressures to perform, which opens the organization up to new and different types of risks. A focus on culture can address safety and performance issues simultaneously, thus breaking this dangerous cycle.
Denison Consulting’s new set of offerings will help clients build forward-thinking culture strategies that target the underlying drivers of safety and performance. These offerings include:
- Safety Practice Review – Comprehensive reviews of your organization’s safety tools and programs, as well as those of the competition, to identify opportunities for greater impact within the organization.
- Defining Industry Best Practices – Thorough review of research literature and industry best practices to identify current limitations of safety and culture programs and lead to practical recommendations for improvement.
- Knowledge Sharing & Best Practice Transfer – Thoughtful involvement of the entire organization, including senior leadership, to manage safety and its interacting parts as a total system and ensure that best practices are transferred across work sites.
- Culture & Safety Diagnostics – World-class culture and safety diagnostics that help organizations assess the aspects of their culture that most directly impact performance, as well as how their culture supports safe behaviors and workplace practices.
On the new set of offerings, Levi Nieminen, Ph.D, Director of Research and Development at Denison Consulting expresses excitement about the impact they can have on organizations, saying “By effectively focusing on and managing culture, organizations operating in high-hazard environments can better understand what is fundamentally healthy (and unhealthy) about the way they’ve learned to adapt and coordinate their work. This can have tremendous impact not only on safety but also on productivity and financial performance!”
