Many reputable Company has a strong commitment, good safety management systems, specific budget allocation for safety, and competent HSSE Manpower to minimize the chances of any type of incident occurring in order to comply with legal requirements. But in fact, those still cannot protect our employees (workforces) who continuing to take safety risks despite our focus on making safety a priority for any reason.
In a negative safety culture, it is not uncommon for workers to feel pressured to bend or break safety rules or safe work procedures to meet deadlines or project goals. Even the workforce feels as if safe work procedures are an obstacle to getting their tasks done correctly, on time, and without reprimand since the good safety systems and procedures commonly doesn’t represent the experiences and tasks of the workers realistically through their own input. Not including their input devalues their first-hand experience and expertise and maintains a cultural rift between them and their managers. This cultural rift further contributes to poor communication and miscommunications that lead to safety incidents.
JGC Indonesia believes all incidents are preventable and preventing workplace incidents is an integral part of business strategy. One way to achieve a zero-incident track record is to implement a work-culture which acts as a self-motivator and take it from there.
Limiting the number of incidents and accidents should sprout from the manner of working and should be intrinsically present in the way work is performed. ZIC plays an essential role in order to build safety awareness by infiltrate the adaptive approaches and contrive the new culture in reducing potential incident.
Begins with the beliefs, values, norms, and assumption to demonstrating zero incidents are possible, we are developing processes that promote compliance and allow employees to choose to be safe and take responsibility for their safety-related actions anywhere, anytime because they are empowered to make informed decisions.
In ZIC, all personnel (regardless of position, job description, or time spent at the worksite) have an equal responsibility in keeping themselves and each other safe, created a positive environment in which persons could come forward without fear, they could have understood the circumstances that led to the problem and learned how to avoid it in the future.
The ZIC approach seeks to look at what goes right most of the time and build from there. Instead of looking at instances where safety is absent, one should try to learn from the events where safe work succeeds. The merit of this different approach lies in its reliance on leading indicators. The ideology uses prevention as an umbrella rather than a fence. By incorporating a Zero Incident Culture, JGC Indonesia has a safety culture centred around one underlying idea: Zero Incident. In other words, “Our overarching safety goal is Zero Incidents. But the Zero is not just a number, it is a journey.”
