Inactive Safety Management – The “Do Nothing” Strategy
Most would agree, especially health and safety professionals, that inactive safety management is the least effective. Doing “nothing” is a choice. When an organization ignores the need to properly manage safety, it doesn’t mean the hazards magically disappear. Rather the opposite happens, and it is only a matter of time until tragedy strikes and an unwanted event occurs. The inactive approach looks the other way and depends on luck and hope to keep people safe.
Reactive Safety Management – Playing a 3-2 Zone Defense
Reactive safety management is like playing a 2-3 zone…allowing the offense to make the first move before deciding how to adjust. While this strategy can provide some protection, it still allows for wide-open, uncontested shots. In the area of safety, that is not enough and can lead to costly lessons learned.
