Safety share: A fresh eye can give you new insight
Pingping Sun, life cycle analyst in the Energy Systems (ES) division, shared this best practice that she learned in a previous work setting, where maintaining safe operations was a paramount goal.
Seek a fresh eye
Whether performing daily tasks or new assignments, you should feel free to seek insight from peers or resources beyond your own work group to observe activities, discuss performance and provide feedback to help identify improvement opportunities.
Benefits to this approach
- Issues can be addressed before they become a problem.
- Fresh perspectives enable us to improve how we carry out both routine and non-routine tasks.
- Soliciting observers’ input at the point of performance and sharing this information underscore the Integrated Safety Management model, in which efforts to improve process and safety are continuous.
