TITLE  
Development strategy to change the safety culture of the Thrislington Works
ARTICLE
Description

A continuous improvement strategy was introduced using multidisciplinary teams based around the 4 shifts at Thrislington works. Each team was asked to produce measurable and visible improvements across a range of activities including health and safety. Fundamental to this approach was increasing co-operation and encouraging best practice benchmarking between each team. The process involved

• A management presentation to the teams outlining their purpose
• Allocating the teams responsibility for good housekeeping on specific areas of the site
• Ensuring that the teams had the resources to address H&S issues
• Monthly review meetings of progress and future initiatives
• Re-allocating activities for other teams to action when appropriate
• Photographic evidence of changes and displaying team objectives on notice boards

Benefits

• Significant improvements achieved and recognised by third parties
• Visual improvement to the site.
