LOSE THE BIG STICK
Integrating HOP and Behavioral Science

The purpose of analyzing the human behavioral component of any event is to understand why those involved did the things they did. Investigations attempt to understand the workplace conditions, worker attitudes, adequacy of staffing levels, and the effectiveness of leadership in order to explain what happened. This presentation seeks to understand how worker’s decisions and the capacity of the organizational management system to influence of safe and at-risk behaviors make sense at the time, given the environment within which they were working.
During one recent ASSP conference an interesting debate on "BBS" versus "HOP" garnered much attention. Is it one or the other? Or is there a middle ground?

When we incorporate elements of Human and Organizational Performance (HOP) and Behavior-Based Safety (BBS) into the investigation it allows management to create an environment where workers can make good decisions by recognizing the role of the individual and human fallibility, identifying how organizational systems influence human behavior and embracing the role of the leader to manage organizational systems in order to positively influence human behavior. Further, as worker behaviors are examined using the behavioral approach, the underlying & well hidden management system at risk behaviors become apparent. When we reach these holistic conclusions, we can concentrate on improving the management system....instead of using the easy answer of the "big stick". This blended approach allows us to become an advocate for the most precious resource we have – the worker.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Discuss how incorporating both HOP and BBS into a workplace injury investigation allows for the optimal learning outcome.
Learn to explore the context of why a safety failure occurred and how systems failed instead of using the “big stick” approach.
Compare the proactive components of both HOP and BBS to glean the best of the best methods.

BEYOND ZERO

For years, safety leaders have been challenged with hitting the goal of zero injuries. Millions of dollars have been spent by leading firms in search of Zero, the "Holy Grail" of safety. Many of these efforts have proved beneficial, and yet many others must be questioned. Some of the finest safety cultures meet the goal of Zero Injuries, only to find that a tragic event shatters Zero, leaving it a hollow memory of what was, but no longer is. Why does this happen?
Is Zero really the right goal or is there a better one that will drive continuous safety improvement? Learn what lies Beyond Zero, and how this is the goal your culture must strive for to not only survive, but thrive in today's competitive landscape.

BEYOND EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
Unleashing the Power of R+

For years, Gallup and other firms have reported on the “engaged employee”…and the search for how to increase engagement has become the Holy Grail of HR.

Engaged employees, however, are becoming more rare. In China, the “lie down” movement has business leaders very worried. Globally, 70% of workers are disengaged or actively disengaged.
So, how do we solve this problem? How do we create a culture where more people reach not only engagement, but move to the next level beyond engagement?
The answer may surprise you, but it’s been staring us in the face all along. It’s not better healthcare benefits, it’s not an improved 401K plan. The secret to getting more engagement, and then to moving beyond engagement is a simple 5 word phrase.
