Psyscan Dedicated Consultancy Support

To ensure maximum client value, we customize our dedicated consulting solutions within a flexible integrated behavior-based safety framework which will fit each client's specific needs.

1.  Behavioral Safety Process Reviews
Behavioral Safety Process Review is not simple: it involves people’s values and beliefs, guiding their behavior, and developing and maintaining robust, effective safety management systems. As such, it’s a major challenge that takes a great deal of time and hard work from everyone involved.  The following are some of our popular Process Reviews: Project & Shutdown Safety Review; Site Risk Assessment; and OSH Surveys.

2.  Site Assessment for Total Safety Culture (TSC) Planning
Employee Involvement & Ownership: To achieve a world-class safety culture, it is vital to develop a safety partnership between your company's leadership and employees. This relies on regular (hourly) input from employees and staff to harness their ownership of, and commitment to, the execution of your cultural change strategy. Given their intimate knowledge of the effectiveness of your current safety improvement efforts, involving them in the planning of the change strategy is the best way to do this.

A site assessment involves assessing potential safety problems that may interfere with a successful introduction of BBS. There are two routes for assessment by:

  1. Focus Group Workshops where your people discover issues and plan the way forward;
  2. Safety Surveys where you discover your workforce perceptions about safety per se.

Focus Group Workshops: To help your people design the appropriate way forward, we conduct various one-day 'Cultural Change Planning' workshops for identifying your workforce values, beliefs and assumptions about safety, your safety routines and safety structures to discover ‘What is’ and ‘What could be’. We develop a 'gap analysis' for facilitating the execution of your safety culture change plans. In particular we tie the 'Behavioral issues identified to our Psyscan's BBS implementation strategy.

Safety Surveys: Through these surveys, we gauge the overall perceptions and morale of your employees and unlock critical cultural information to help improve your overall safety culture. Our online Safety Climate Survey provides you with the ability to survey your whole workforce, quickly and easily. We will empower your workforce to develop an excellent safety culture by arming them with the necessary tools and processes. We tie the 'Behavioral issues identified to Psyscan's BBS implementation strategy.

Focus on Safety Leadership
The role of leadership cannot be overemphasized in the success of a behavior-based safety process. Safety leadership is vital, whether it is from formal or informal leaders throughout an organization. Formal leadership includes supervisors and managers. Informal leaders are employees who take a special interest in safety; they are often union leaders and other employees who are well-respected by coworkers. To maximize the success of Behavioral safety improvement efforts, leadership responsibilities must be defined for both formal and informal leaders. Supervisors and managers should generally conduct observations as part of a Behavioral safety process. Both types of leaders share important responsibilities for supporting safety.

Certain practices serve as the framework for supporting Psychology based approach. Executives and Sponsors must model these behaviors for the teams involved in the COACH implementation and for employees participating in the process. These behaviors will help you support the Design Team and Steering Committees in the organization as they bring about change the “right” way.

Train the Trainer Certification
We can help prepare and certify your organization’s own internal consultants to design and implement Psyscan BBS at multiple locations under a license agreement with us. After an intensive and rigorous training experience, the certification process involves our personnel 'mentoring' your internal consultants through one or more BBS implementations. Your internal consultants become more accountable and take more responsibility with each successive implementation. Once your internal consultants can demonstrate their independence with a successful 'stand-alone' implementation, they are certified. After completing our certification process, internal consultants can lead future implementations and adjust the process as necessary without any further assistance.
