What We Do
We work with companies to identify and implement need-based solutions to improve workplace safety and human performance. We work with companies from all industries, particularly those inhigh risk industries such as power, oil and gas, construction, aviation, and shipbuilding.
What Makes Us Different
We work with clients to solve problems systematically, rather than programmatically. We work with clients from problem identification to problem resolution.Our products and services are based on best practices of the United States military and scientific research on safety and human performance.With each problem-solving step, we offer products and services that can serve as stand-alone offerings.We do not employ a “one size fits all” consulting approach. Our solutions are customized to clients’ needs. Our solutions are reviewed and validated by an industrial/organizational psychologist with considerable experience and expertise in matters related to safety and human performance.
How We Do It
With every client engagement, we utilize a three-step problem solving approach informed by years
of practical experience.
STEP 1: ASSESS
We administer a Safety Culture Assessment to gain a deeper, more objective understanding of an
organization’s (or worksite’s) unique safety culture and related safety/human performance needs.
STEP 2: CONSULT/TRAIN
Based on the results of the Assessment, we work with the client to develop a need-based
safety/performance improvement plan built around our three core training offerings: leadership
training, error reduction training, and field engagement training.
STEP 3: MEASURE
To evaluate the effectiveness of our training efforts (i.e., assess attitude and behavior change), we
administer a follow-up Safety Culture Assessment. Based on the clients’ needs, we administer a
variety of additional optional research-based evaluation techniques designed to further measure
the effectiveness of the training efforts (e.g., statistical studies, employee focus groups).
