Hogan Safety: Select, Induct, Develop and Identify a Safety Culture
When using Hogan assessments as an integrated solution, it allows the organisation to deliver a seamless solution and integrated safety focus… Key Considerations: Organisational governance Strategic people management strategy Recruit and induct Design and review work systems Learning and development Performance management Reward and recognition Succession planning Culture Organisational strategy and goals Processes Integration of Hogan within the Safety Strategy:
About the Employee Safety Climate Survey The Safety Climate Survey identifies critical factors that can be used to improve the workplace safety climate Based on unsafe work behaviour research since the 1970’s Employees rate safety climate using safety awareness index Measures overall safety Provides the opportunity for written comments Consists of 40 questions Can be conducted online or pen and paper Customised according to clients’ demographics Report provides benchmark scores Identifies key concerns Concludes with specific recommendations
Employee Safety Climate Survey Report Safety Awareness Index Key Priorities Written Comments
Safety Climate Awareness Index Safety Climate Awareness Index includes: Management Safety Attitudes – How aware is management of safety issues? Supervisor Safety Attitudes – How aware are supervisors of safety issues? Company Safety Attitudes – Is the company aware of safety issues? Co-Worker Safety – Are my co-workers safe and aware of relevant issues? Equipment and Training – Do we have adequate training and/or safe equipment?
Safety Climate Awareness Index Compliance versus Commitment – Is the company devoted to improving safety? Measurement – Are employees given feedback about the level of safety of the company? Culture – Does the company regularly communicate their expectations and regulations regarding safety issues? Myself – Do I value safety and/or feel that my company is safe? Company Engagement – Does the company connect with the employees on topics of safety?
Hogan Overview: Applications Succession Management Team- Building Selecting candidates to minimise risk Induction into the organisation’s safety culture Improving the performance of current employees, ensuring risks are identified Identifying & developing individuals who are ready to move into various roles within the organization Helping teams align their strengths with the goals and identify potential roadblocks Talent Management The Hogan assessments can be used to help organizations satisfy a wide variety of talent management safety needs. They can be integrated into a safety culture road map….

8 HoganSAFETY …using personality assessment to predict safe and unsafe behaviors…
9 Why a Safety Report? It is the first step to risk management Unsafe workers create considerable expense for companies and consumers alike Can use as: –A personnel selection aid –An assessment of current workforce to uncover training needs Hogan has been researching predictors of safety-related behaviors for nearly 30 years across a variety of industries –Some examples include…
10 Industries Energy & Utilities Construction Government Agriculture Manufacturing Transportation & Warehousing Retail & Hospitality
Safety Competency Model 6 Dimensions of Safe Behavior –Each contributes to a different aspect of best safety practices –Each reported on a 5-range normative scale BEST SAFETY PRACTICES CompliantStrong Emotionally Stable VigilantCautiousTrainable
Defiant – Compliant Following standard operating procedures (SOPs) –Low scorers defy authority, and may ignore company rules –High scorers tend to follow rules and guidelines Chernobyl –On April 26, 1986, the world witnessed the costliest accident in history. The death toll attributed to Chernobyl, including people who died from cancer years later, is estimated at 125,000. The total costs including cleanup, resettlement, and compensation to victims has been estimated to be roughly $200 Billion. The accident was officially attributed to power plant operators who violated plant procedures and were ignorant of the safety requirement needs.
Panicky – Strong Handling Stress –Low scorers may panic under pressure –High scorers tend to be sure of their decisions Buffalo Plane Crash –On February 13, 2009, a Continental Airlines commuter plane crashed into a house in Buffalo, New York. All of the people onboard and one individual living inside the house died, bringing the total loss of life to 50. In-flight recorders have shown that not only were the two pilots having “irrelevant chatter,” which is forbidden by FAA regulations, but the head pilot in full panic and terror pulled the plane’s nose up when he should have dropped the plane’s nose so the plane would not stall.
Over-Reaction – Emotionally Stable Maintaining emotional control –Low scorers may easily lose their temper –High scorers tend to remain calm, even in stressful situations Hudson River Plane Crash –On January 15th, 2009 US Airlines flight 1549 crash landed into the Hudson River after striking numerous birds upon takeoff. Everyone on board (155 people) survived and were accounted for. The flights pilot, Chelsey B. “Sully” Sullenberger, was described as “calm, cool and collected” as he maneuvered the plane into a safe landing position. There is no training for such landings and because of Sully’s focus and composure, a tragic accident was averted.
Distractible – Vigilant Focusing attention over time –Low scorers can be easily bored, and become inattentive –High scorers tend to stay focused on the task at hand Metrolink Crash –On September 12, 2008, in what was one of the worst train crashes in California history, 25 people were killed when a Metrolink commuter train crashed head-on into a Union Pacific freight train in Los Angeles. It is thought that the Metrolink train may have run through a red signal while the conductor was not paying attention – instead he was busy text messaging. Wrongful death lawsuits are expected to cause $500 million in losses for Metrolink.
Reckless – Cautious Avoiding unnecessary risks over time –Low scorers are prone to taking unnecessary risks. –High scorers tend to evaluate options before making risky decisions. Exxon Valdez –The Exxon Valdez oil spill was not a large one in relation to the world's biggest oil spills, but it was a costly one due to the remote location of Prince William Sound (accessible only by helicopter and boat). On March 24, 1989, 10.8 million gallons of oil was spilled when the ship's master, Joseph Hazelwood, left the controls and the ship crashed into a Reef. It was alleged that Joseph Hazelwood was intoxicated. The cleanup cost Exxon $2.5 billion.
Arrogant – Trainable Engaging in training & development opportunities –Low scorers overestimate their own competence and as a result may be difficult to train –High scorers tend to be willing to listen to advice and take advantage of opportunities to learn more New York Crane Crash –A large crane collapsed in Manhattan on March 15th, 2008, killing seven and putting several others in critical condition as it smashed into nearby buildings. The city Department of Buildings blamed faulty rigging for the collapse. The contractors in charge of the rigging attached four nylon slings to an 11,000 pound steel brace that was supporting the crane alongside the building. Eight chain braces should have been used and because of this, the crane collapsed.
…but safety is just one component of job performance…
3 Dimensions of General Employability 1.Dependability Concerns following established procedures and making work-related activity a priority. 2.Composure Concerns handling stress and pressure without becoming upset or emotional. 3.Customer Focus Concerns the capacity to relate to internal and external customers in a friendly, positive, and helpful manner. Based on decades of experience predicting performance in a wide range of jobs.
20 Implementation of the Safety Report About the report –General information –Breakdown of sections –How it works…
21 About the Safety Report Generated from the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) –A Business-related measure of normal personality –Designed to predict occupational success –Developed exclusively based on data collected from working adults –No invasive or intrusive items –Items written at 4 th grade reading level –No adverse impact –Fully internet enabled –Available in multiple languages –Typically takes 15-20 minutes to complete
22 About the Safety Report The report has 3 main features: 1)Presents information about 6 dimensions of safety-related personality 2)Gives three scores related to general employability 3)Provides development areas for safety-related behaviors
23 About The Safety Report 5 Total Pages with 3 Main Sections –Section 1 (Components of Safety-Related Behavior) Optional Overall Average Safety Score –Section 2 (Components of General Employment-Related Behavior) –Section 3 (Detailed Development Areas By Safety Components) Optional Off-the-Shelf (no additional research study required) Easy to Use and Understand Created Based on Input from Safety Managers and Consultants
24 Using the Safety Report For Selection –Screening out applicants who are at higher risk of engaging in unsafe behaviors –Screening in applicants who are most likely to display safety- related work behaviors For Development/Training –Training and needs analysis of current workforce –Can be integrated with safety-related training
