Strong safety performance is a cornerstone of any business. Implementing and enforcing health and safety polices is essential to ensure that the business does not endanger the health or safety of workers, communities, or customers. More often than not, strong safety performance also makes the difference in being qualified to provide services to customers or being able to sustain/expand the business.
While health and safety compliance is not optional, the methods of maintaining compliance are. Most companies already have health and safety policies and procedures in place. Kestrel’s role is to help companies apply industry best practices to help keep the work environment safe.
Our team examines the entire workplace, identifies and assesses hazards and risks, and then helps our clients develop and implement appropriate processes and controls for safe operations. Our methods focus on meeting and maintaining compliance, while:
- Defining and helping to deploy a robust and reliable safety culture
- Improving and sustaining human performance reliability
- Enhancing customer confidence and business reputation
- Improving and sustaining continual system improvement
Managing Human Error
Human error plays a large role in all occupational and process safety incidents and accidents. Companies are challenged with understanding and managing the factors contributing to human error and using these data to drive improvement in safety performance. Kestrel helps companies reduce the likelihood of incidents by integrating a detailed analysis of human factors into leading and lagging assessment activities.
Kestrel’s Human Performance Reliability (HPR) process enables companies to identify weaknesses in their current operational controls at the local operating level, within a specific business, and across the entire organization. Subsequent improvements and corrections in the identified weaknesses help to reveal system-wide opportunities for improvement that reduce the likelihood of future incidents.
