We have come a long way for sure and after nine weeks this year, our time loss injuries are down 47 percent compared to last year.
“BC Ferries began working with WrightWay Training and Force Technology (WrightForce) approximately six years ago with the formulation of the joint-Union/Management initiative called SailSafe, which is fundamentally aimed at improving our overall safety culture. Since the inception of SailSafe, we have seen our Time Loss injuries drop significantly (2006 – 357, 2012 – 157), with an associated decrease in claims costs (2006 – $3.5M, 2012 – $800K).
Though these numbers reflect dramatic and positive impacts to our bottom line, what is even more exciting is how the level of engagement has also radically improved, due in large part to the expertise and patient counsel of WrightWay and Force Technology.”
I can attest and fully support to the approach of ‘Managing Safety and Business’ that John Wright has formulated and presents in his business/safety model.
Executive training in Human Factors and Accident Investigation, Risk Assessment, Bridge Resource Management and simulations as well as a system of audits involving training from the top down and the bottom up has brought real attitude change and situational awareness of where we are as organizations and where we want to be headed
“This course will certainly help me to carry out effective incident investigation.”
We do not view training as a cost, but an investment.
