Ideal accountability


Companies that strive for optimal safety performance display the highest level of organizational safety accountability.


In these companies, everyone understands that they are accountable for safety. The newest, entry-level employee has the same commitment to excellence as management. These companies have strategically thought out how they will get employees involved in their safety programs. By using a behavior or value-based safety approach, these companies have broken down the barriers that prevented them from achieving an integrated safety accountability system in which employees take ownership of their daily activities. These companies usually see additional payoffs in terms of quality and production, which often accompany low and stable incidence rates.


  1. Safety accountability is assigned to all levels

  2. Behavior-based safety creates ownership of the safety process

  3. Incidence rates less than industry average

  4. Payoff in quality, production, and incidence rates
