Step 1:  Motivation for Initiation Recognizing the need for a target program           Dramatic or serious accident-single event  Occurrence of a disproportionate number of injuries and near misses,  foretelling future injuries that could be serious Recognition that conditions must be   addressed to reduce risks (jobsite audits) Regulatory Intervention

Step 3:  Target Safety Program Champion Someone must take the lead role to implement the  program The individual who recognized the need often has the  energy to follow-through on the program  implementation Individual is generally a manager (corporate level or  project level) Corporate level champions generally seek and obtain  cooperation from field managers Corporate level champions will have more success in  getting programs implemented company-wide Every Program Needs a Champion

Step 4:  Development of the Program   Clearly define the hazards and assess the risks Evaluate the risks and devise a means of avoiding  them Communication is crucial (don’t create the program in  a vacuum) Means of obtaining worker input (functional task team  or ad hoc committee) help to achieve target program  success  Devise different alternatives and select the most  preferred option or combine aspects of different  options
