Safety Accountability Management
In order to institute accountable safety management it is vital to encourage personal accountability. Every crew member and office staff member must feel genuine responsibility for their own and others’ actions and safety behaviour. A management tool for enhancing and fostering good performance and managing poor safety performance is Green-Jakobsen’s accountability matrix. The matrix enables assessment of safety competence level and attitude and it is a tool that ensures fair and transparent management of safety performance. It also gives leaders good guidance on what actions to take to develop employees’ safety performance and employees a clear guidance on what is expected of them.
As a common ground for assessing, discussing and developing safety performance Green-Jakobsen’s Safety I’sTM provide a description of the desired safety behaviour.
