Why a committed leadership is the first step towards a Safety Culture
Safety is a matter that concerns us all, starting with the leadership team. Only by leading by example we will be able to improve our Safety standards, go further in our Safety Culture and support our customers.
We are also measuring these improvements with the Bradley Curve, which defines the level of development of the Safety Culture in an organization. It highlights the importance of the leadership role in promoting this safety Culture so that, eventually, each employee, no matter their role, becomes a safety leader. We have to be always proactive and accountable to develop a safer working environment every day together with our customers.
Part of this proactivity and accountability is the report of near misses. These are events in which there has not been any accident or incident but could have happened. This report is key to identify potential issues and implement the applicable measures to prevent any future accident or incident.
We have a key role towards our customers, as at MAXAM we have to become not only a business partner but also a partner that goes beyond and contributes to improve our customers’ operations safety. In fact, our efforts to anticipate risks and be proactive is becoming a competitive advantage for us in the market.
Only with the full and actual commitment of the leadership team with Safety we will improve our Safety Culture.
And Safety is always first.
