Wombat Software wants to hear your thoughts on Zero Injuries Initiatives.  Are they an effective safety tool?

These programs require significant commitments in time and resources

  • Total engagement from the entire organization
  • A change in overall culture, and engagement of the workforce.
  • Involving employees in safety teams, harnessing their knowledge of the work process and equipment to improve safety.

This sounds like a lot of work, but it can lead to significant reduction in injuries and cost savings in the long run.

Our friend Tom Fitzgerald with Safety Fitz LLC shared his experience in starting a Zero Injuries program 15 years ago in an extensive article.

They achieved the following results.

  • They brought down the number of injuries to zero in 5 years and
  • They maintained a low injury rate for the next 5 years.

Your Thoughts on Zero Injuries Initiatives

  • Was it a positive addition to your safety program?
  • What contributions could software make the outcome of this type of initiative.

We look forward to learning from you and being part of the conversation.
