Introduction to Job Safety

On-the-job safety must consider three critical factors: Physical Conditions, Personal Conditions and Cultural Conditions. All three contribute to safety – and risk – in the workplace. Job Safety training provides supervisors and workers with a framework for recognizing potential hazards and eliminating them. JS stresses that the supervisor/worker relationship plays a pivotal role in OSHA-safe and EPA-responsible workplaces.

Job Safety trains your people to analyze the chain of events leading to accidents and hazardous situations. Physical links in the chain include the facility, equipment, workplace floorplan and traffic, lighting, signage, clothing and protective gear – all such factors and the risks they may present. Human conditions represent the personal links and can involve knowledge, skills, abilities, emotions, supervisor/worker relationships, behaviors, routines, personal health and the like. Cultural links are institutional in nature and involve policies, leadership attitudes, risk management procedures and related organizational behaviors and attitudes. Job Safety heightens awareness of potential problems, identifies root causes and remediates them to “break the chain.”

Our End-to-End programming assures adoption and continuation of the benefits of TWI and Job Safety. Your TWI Institute coach will meet with management, managers, trainers, supervisors and team leaders to observe your TWI JS implementation. Your coach will gauge progress, identify problems, suggest solutions and help realign goals.

Job Safety, as is the case with all TWI Institute programs, is focused not only on workplace safety, but also on the safety of the people in it and the risk exposure for the business. What’s more, JS provides a proven and reliable system for elevating the kind of employee engagement and participation that advances ongoing or planned continuous improvement, kaizen, lean and operational excellence initiatives.
