401 | Implementing an ANSI/ASSP Z10 Management System Based on the New View of Safety


Description

Management systems are a powerful tool to continuously improve your occupational safety and health (OSH) effectiveness. Implementing ANSI/ASSP Z10 increases organizational communication and alignment by challenging long-held assumptions and replacing them with factors that lead to success.

Your registration includes a copy of ANSI/ASSP Z10.

Learning Objectives

  • Apply new-view concepts—a systems-thinking approach to safety and health
  • Recognize employees as a source of safety resilience
  • Implement processes to learn from failures and successes to improve operational and organization performance
  • Apply systems thinking to maximize effectiveness when establishing and implementing a management system
  • Integrate elements of the ANSI/ASSP Z10 standard with other systems such as ISO 9001, 14000 and 45001, OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Programs and OSHA’s Process Safety Management standard

402 | Bowtie Risk Assessment


Description

ISO and ANSI/ASSP standards list bowtie analysis as a simple diagrammatic way to describe and analyze the pathways of a risk from hazards to outcomes. The method identifies the activities that keep a control working and who is responsible for a control. You can also use it to effectively analyze whether hazards are managed to an acceptable level (widely known as ALARP). If you are looking to add rigor in your risk assessment process, bowtie analysis can help you link causal relationships in high-risk scenarios.

Learning Objectives

  • Use the bowtie risk assessment methodology
  • Determine control strategies for prevention and recovery (when controls do not work)
  • Integrate the hierarchy of controls to semiquantitatively verify risk reductions

406 | Actively Caring for People’s Safety


Description

Gain insight on evidence-based guidelines for improving the quality and frequency of safety-related behavior that can benefit worker welfare and life satisfaction. If practiced extensively, these safety/life lessons not only can prevent workplace injuries but also can improve quality of life by reducing interpersonal conflict and bullying, and enhancing work productivity, environmental sustainability and life satisfaction. The four guidelines reflect the applied behavioral science principles of positive reinforcement, observational learning, and behavior-based feedforward and feedback. The subsequent three life lessons are essentially derived from humanism. Thus, “humanistic behaviorism” is the theoretical and empirical foundation of the course content.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain the critical connection between seven life lessons from psychological science and achieving and sustaining an injury-free workplace
  • Define the advantages of a success-seeking over a failure-avoiding mind-set
  • Distinguish between feedforward and feedback as behavior improvement techniques
  • Perform effectively as a behavior-based safety coach for injury prevention
  • List and demonstrate five levels of interpersonal listening and explain their relevance to achieving and sustaining an injury-free workplace
  • Increase the perception of empowerment and self-motivation for occupational safety within oneself and others
  • Define five dispositions that enhance one’s propensity to perform actively-caring-for-people behavior and explain how to influence these five person-states
