Title: INDUSTRIAL SAFETY SUPPLY THROUGH APPRECIATIVE INQUIRY


1
INDUSTRIAL SAFETY SUPPLY THROUGH APPRECIATIVE
INQUIRY
2
Industrial Safety Supply through Appreciative
Inquiry
  • Texas Safety Supply will have the Safety Supplies
    that you need to assist you to jettison your
    current results and make your workplace a Better,
    safer place to work.
  • Lasting Changes to Reduce on the job injuries
  • The only doorway to long term change and long
    term success is far different the injury
    prevention plan used by most Mid to Large size
    companies today. I suggest an approach to buying
    Industrial Safety Supply products through a more
    inclusive, extensive process that we apply
    through a David Cooperrider and originator of
    the Appreciative Inquiry approach to Problem
    solving.

3
  • The Appreciative Inquiry approach to problem
    solving and Corporate Change Is a method that I
    believe will help you achieve long lasting
    results and a long lasting change in the culture
    of your workplace. It's not a quick Fix approach,
    but it is an approach that can and will bring
    rapid improvement that continues on a positive
    trajectory.
  • More about David's approach to Problem solving in
    a bit. Quickly, a review of how the process
    works in most Mid to large size companies today.

4
Purchasing Industrial Safety Supply Products
  • Selecting the right Industrial Safety Supply
    products for your facility and the preferred
    Safety Supplies can be a daunting decision in the
    workplace. The age old question of balancing Cost
    and quality. But an Industrial Safety Supply rep
    is only part of the answer in an Injury
    prevention process. It's not the "End of the
    Line" as the Travelling Wilburys used to sing.

5
Old School Problem Solving
  • Typically in the Corporate world a CEO, President
    or other bigwig sees that a Poor safety record
    has caused a company's insurance rates to go up
    and is having a negative impact on investors in
    that company. Poor Injury Rates have a negative
    effect on bottom line of any company. So Costs
    are up, profits are down and now the President
    knows that he has to do something before the
    Board of Directors Meeting next month as she will
    surely be questioned about what they heck is
    going on within our Company? So what does she do?
    It's time for the Old "Action Plan".

6
Industrial Safety Supply and Implementing change
Typically, an important Leader within an
organization decides that there is a need for a
change within the organization. He calls together
his underlings and direct reports and informs
them that their is a need for a change and "dad
gummit" it it better happen pretty quick and it
better achieve the desired result. They are
several layers removed. They're the analyst. It's
what they do and what they do it well. They
analyze facts, numbers, trends and come up with a
well intentioned solutions.
7
The Old Cram Down Method of Implementing the new
Safety Plan
  • Now it's time to disseminate the plan, so they
    send the plan down to Regional and Facility
    Managers and normally send along some "fear and
    threats" in the envelope as well. "Implement the
    plan they say." So these mid managers do some
    implementing. But now the Mid Manager has done
    their part of the implementing the plan from "on
    high". Now it's get passed on in the game of
    telephone to the next layer.

8
Pass the Industrial Safety Plan to the Front Line
  • "Tag", now the shift supervisor or the shift
    manager is it. Now they are told why the Plan is
    important and must be implemented. In a hurry. So
    the shift supervisor, having lost some of the
    message again in the "telephone" chain of
    communication, explains the Plan to the frontLine
    employee, he has them sign the Meeting Log to
    show they have heard about the Plan.

9
Long Lasting Changes in Industrial Safety Supply
and Injury Prevention
I became a believer in this approach to Injury
prevention and Purchasing Industrial Safety
Supply products approximately fifteen years ago.
I worked at a truly leading edge organization in
the Less Than Truckload Freight business as a
Facility Manager that taught these Appreciative
Inquiry approach to implementing change to Senior
Managers as well as other selected managers and
it became the way for 'doing business' in that
company.
10
An Appreciative Inquiry Approach to Injury
Prevention and Purchasing Industrial Safety
Products
  • The Appreciative Inquiry approach to solving
    problems begins from the Bottom of an
    organizational chart and Flows up. So, the
    absolute reverse top down approach to Most Mid to
    large size companies problem solving that goes on
    today.

11
Employee Involvement in Selection Industrial
Safety Supply Products
  • Top down plans, how ever well intentioned, rarely
    result in Long Term culture change. Bottom up
    plans, with top level equal involvement,...well
    those plans work well. They send people home
    safe. They put the right Industrial Safety
    Product on the employee to keep them safe while
    performing the tasks that have potential for
    injury. The Bottom line cost for Industrial
    Safety Products actually go down because
    employees know that Management cares and buys
    them the Best Industrial Safety Products
    available so they can do their job well, and do
    it in a Safe manner.
