How to Improve Safety Climate Through Worker Participation

* Track injuries and near misses.
* Form subcommittees to address
specific issues or projects.
* Conduct accident and
near-miss investigations
on both employee injuries
and vehicle accidents.
* Consider other activities that
will spread the workload of the
safety program.
A joint safety committee
should not be viewed as a forum
for complaints or retroactive
blaming for incidents or injuries.
Instead, the committee should be
an effective tool to help prevent
unsafe working conditions or
practices, reduce the risk of
injury or illness, and motivate
employees and supervisors to
become actively involved in a
company's safety program. On all
jobsites, it is important to have
representation from all the trades.

Problems to Watch For
Construction is generally
hierarchical, with a control and
command structure. Workers
often complain that they are hired
"from the neck down" and are
not expected to think. However,
construction workers have to solve
problems every day on the job.
Safety directors may believe they
are hired for their expertise and
the need to exercise authority
to make the worksite safer. Yet a
safety director does not want to
be considered a safety cop, where
workers work safely only when he
or she is coming around. The same
can be said of site supervisors who
are trained to be safety leaders.
Supervisors cannot be with every
member of their crew 24/7, and the
safety-related decisions their crews
make while they are not present
