TITLE
Checklists from workers
ARTICLE
WBB Minerals’ employees have been closely involved in the development of an initial twenty key safety behaviours were, which were then incorporated into checklists.

These were for workers to rate their own safety habits and those of their colleagues. For any unsafe actions, workers were asked to say why they had acted in this way. In order to encourage openness, no workers were held accountable for any wrong-doing over the four week period of the initiative. Instead, it helped to identify where mistakes were being made and helped to combat unsafe practice.

Some of the benefits include:
- Increased awareness of unsafe acts on site
- Interaction between workers over safety issues
- Identification of root problem of unsafe act so it can be addressed.
