Rick Donovan, health and safety director at the Mississippi Lime Company, says these are some of the factors that are making a huge difference in his company's employee health and safety performance. Donovan was one of the session speakers at the Canadian Society of Safety Engineers' annual conference, held in this city this week.
Speaking at a session entitled, Innovative Techniques in Accident Reduction, Donovan discussed his company's success in significantly improving its safety record. A big factor in the success is leadership.
"If a manager cannot manage safety, chances are they cannot manage the rest of the business," says Donovan, noting that 60 per cent of all unsafe acts are observed by management and 85 per cent of all accidents are within management control.
It's management responsibility to provide a safe work environment and provide the support and the means to get it done, he says. On the other hand, individual employees are also made accountable for their own safety performance.
Part of Mississippi Lime's safety policies is ensuring that workers are properly trained and educated to perform work safely. Employees that are consistently involved in accidents are put on safety probation, which at times involves laying off the employee without pay, says Donovan.

These incident investigation scores are taken into account when doing performance reviews on employees, Donovan explains.
