Home What we do SafetyCircle

Simplify your OHS

Over the past 20 years OHS has grown into a monster for many organisations. Through genuine efforts to reduce injuries OHS has become prone to over-the- top, complex paper warfare, often diverting attention from practical risk management. We call this OHS “Old Health and Safety”. Workers complain and switch off. Leaders roll their eyes at the next audit or OHS training schedule and get lost in the sea of compliance issues. Conversations abound including, “More butt-covering?” “OHS? Boring.” “Why do we have to do all this now?” “Just get it done to pass the audit.”

SafetyCircle cuts through this mess.

By straightening out people’s thinking around health and safety, their participation becomes genuine. They speak-up and challenge unworkable processes and paperwork; instead of shutting up, resenting and bypassing them.

Make it Positive

By truly engaging participants in a positive concept of work health and safety we bring them into 21st Century thinking: “WHS is about me going Home Safe and Well so I can enjoy life fully. And it’s about all of us doing that.”

So people report hazards and near-misses more; follow the rules and procedures; and do risk assessments as if their life and limbs depend on them… because, you know what? They do!

Since IPM were here, we have had the most alignment ever (not perfect just on the way), the most change has occurred, safety has improved at little to no cost, people are accountable, and when they are not I have a method to use to make them and they have had the coaching to know they could have done better so it’s not an argument but more a conversation.

In the month since IPM was onsite, we implemented around $30k p.a. Savings alongside all the other improvements and happier team.

Thank you for the excellent work with our training sessions and the SafetyCircle Program generally. They are the best-run sessions I’ve attended in my 19 years here.  It’s been a whole new way of thinking – and living!  Such a simple message – but so pervasive.  Your gift of engaging participants is commendable.

Well done – you have made it so easy for us all to enthusiastically embrace the program.”

Brendan Lennard, Senior Cultural Heritage Officer, Hobart City Council, TAS
