Organisation and Culture
Proactima offers multiple services within analysis and assessment of safety-critical aspects, from assessment of the effect of safety-related measures, to identifying and describing the existing HSE culture to predict safety-critical consequences of organisational changes.
Systematic development of HSE culture
A well-functioning culture contributes by supporting the organisation’s strategies and goals. However, in some cases, the culture can work against the organisation’s goals. This could be risky. Active work on a risky culture can be entirely necessary to prevent an accident. Culture can be changed, but this requires continuity, expertise and communication. Proactima has specialised expertise within HSE culture and organisational changes. Our consultants contribute to mapping, implementation and early operation of an HSE culture programme.
Identifying safety-critical consequences
Organisational changes such as restructuring, mergers, acquisitions, downsizing and technological changes often have safety-critical consequences. It is important that the organisation maintains control over safety both in the actual change process, and in the final organisation.
It is therefore good practice to identify and analyse possible safety-critical consequences as part of planning the change process. Proactima can help you be proactive by mapping safety-critical consequences and identifying measures.
As part of quality assurance it is natural to show the result of safety-related measures such as training, education, changes in management systems, etc. Proactima provides several tools for identification and measurement of effect. The products comprise both quantitative data (pre-post testing through surveys, tests, measurements) and qualitative (observations, interviews) descriptive data.
Mapping HSEQ culture
It may be difficult to identify aspects of an organisation’s safety culture. Proactima’s team includes anthropologists, psychologists and other social scientists who can map the cultural dimensions of safety in the organisation.
