About ADL Associates
The successful management of occupational health and safety is more than just a set of rules and regulations. It is a culture that requires to be embedded and nurtured across the whole organisation, supplemented by aspirations to continually improve.
To effectively cultivate the desired behaviours and performance towards occupational health and safety, leadership and responsibility from within the entire management structure is key, rather than the dependence of the organisation on the sole efforts of an individual. Visible leadership raises safety awareness and helps to embed a safety culture where zero tolerance of unsafe working practices and unsafe working conditions is desirable. It includes leadership visibility. This is through safety briefings, training and site audits by senior management. Senior leaders and managers must ‘buy-in’ to the culture and undertake formal training themselves. They should strive to personally participate in safety audits to inspire employees. They will in turn gain important insight into safety issues affecting employees at the forefront of all business activities.
To this end ADL Associates deliver training, coaching and mentoring to support the leadership and management of organisations. This is through seminars, workshops, personal intervention. This is also through discussions to attain achievable occupational health and safety cultural improvements and leadership goals. The creation of a strong, just and open forum for tackling safety performance assumptions. The long term health goals is the aspiration of the occupational health and safety culture that will transcend national legal and regulatory regimes and performance criteria.
This is a strategy that has proved very powerful and successful. It has been installed throughout many industries and organisations. This strategy includes the blending and morphing of tools such as “Behaviour Based Safety Strategies”, “Peer Learning Techniques”, “Management Through Objectives” and “Total Quality Management”. This technique also provides tools that can be eventually utilised to improve general management capabilities.
