SafeTrack Implementation

Sites implementing SafeTrack will begin at one of our public SafeTrack workshops or by having a SafeTrack consultant come on site to train the senior management and 10-15 percent of the frontline supervisors, as a minimum. Smaller sites may train their entire management and supervisory staff.

Senior Management will take part in the two-day observer training classes and the one-on-one hands-on coaching sessions. They will also participate in a two to four hour session that covers mentoring skills for working to improve the quality of observations. It also discusses how items identified through the observation process will be addressed within their existing systems or creating systems where they don’t currently exist. Lastly it will get them comfortable with the resources for them to conduct employee overview sessions on SafeTrack.

A half-day steering committee training session will be delivered by a SafeStart consultant. This training session covers the essential functions and best practices of a steering committee. The makeup of the committee should have membership from management, union and different departments throughout the site, representing each shift, with a makeup of 6-8 people. One person should be designated the chair of the committee and another as the recording secretary for recording and distributing minutes. It is recommended that the on-site safety specialist is not the chair.

A SafeTrack virtual consultant joins the regular steering committee meeting (conference call or Skype) in months two and four to monitor progress, discuss the quantity and quality of the observations taking place and examine any challenges.

A SafeTrack follow-up consultant will conduct an onsite follow-up visit to determine first-hand the success or challenges that the client is having with the SafeTrack program. Based on the outcome of that follow-up, the consultant will either recommend the next group of observers be trained by a qualified consultant or should the client desire and the implementation thus far is successful a SafeTrack consultant could conduct an onsite train the trainer or client personnel could attend a public train-the-trainer (TTT) workshop.

Ongoing SafeTrack consulting would then either be in the form of a Train the Trainer or observer training for the next group on site.
