Safety Leadership

Shift the workplace safety culture from control and supervision to pro-active responsibility of each employee for themselves and others.
Workplace safety culture as part of people management

The main cause of most workplace accidents and injuries is unknowing human error. Employees do not follow safety instructions or basic rules, nor do they intervene when they see activities or habits that threaten safety.

Injuries usually have direct costs associated with them in companies: medical costs, wage replacement, and claims by injured workers. However, indirect costs in the form of damaged equipment and products, loss of productivity and quality, replacement labor/overtime and training, increased insurance costs, litigation costs, deterioration of customer relations and the overall image of the organization in the community are less well perceived.

A safe organization culture is based on changing the visible (conscious) things such as structure, systems and procedures, but also, and most importantly, on changing and making visible the invisible (unconscious) things such as values, beliefs, attitudes, underlying assumptions, simply the “unwritten rules”.

Safe behaviour is not changed by OSH training alone. Changing attitudes requires more than training or management intent. It is created by a shared process of acceptance and learning new skills based on immediate feedback directly in the workplace, independent of employee positions.

Each employee’s ability to recognize risk and intervene early gradually removes invisible barriers to achieving higher levels of workplace safety.

Our Approach - Roadmap


Strategic management workshop

We define the objectives and areas of the occupational safety programme.


Management Team Workshop

We develop with the management team the company's vision and leadership strategy for workplace safety into a concrete program plan.


"Train the trainer"

We train internal trainers - senior employees to be able to independently train employees from their own teams.


Training of own teams by internal trainers

Conducted by in-house trainers with possible support from ICG consultant as per training plans for all staff.


Follow-up meetings of the management team

We monitor the implementation of the training and communication plan, manage the sharing of experiences of internal trainers, and evaluate the benefits with management.
