I wanted to find out why we were having so many incidents in our sheet metal shop and decided to poll our employees to find out where they felt our next incident(s) were most likely to occur. Once we had their input, we asked them to help develop safety-training videos to allow us to pass on their skills to others, and visa versa. Combined with other employee programs, we saw our costs fall while production and employee accountability/commitment increased.

We’ve used their services in some challenging situations such as with employees working independently at nights, crews working on tight deadlines, etc. They were accommodating to our needs as well as offering creative solutions.

We have used the “Red Packet” accident reporting process, along with the job analyses and alterative duty descriptions very successfully. I had experience with these tools with a previous employer, where combined with other efforts, we realized in excess of a 50% drop in claims costs over 3-4 years.
