In Measuring Safety Part 1, we reviewed the drawbacks of focusing solely on the measurement of safety outcomes absent understanding and tracking operational processes and events that are predictive of a safe workplace. In Part 2 of the series, we are going to dive deeper into the implications of this thinking by reviewing “Serious Injury Fatality” (SIF).
Serious Injury Fatality (SIF) – Breaking it down
The concept is not new. Workplace fatalities have been the object of preventive corporate policies and regulatory scrutiny for decades. Before my interview with Todd Conklin during Pre-accident podcast, however, I had only seen the abbreviation of “SIF” online.
Being an avid reader and learner, I began my Google search on the SIF-phenomenon which revealed many sources on the topic: White papers, several documents by Fred Manuele, and a YouTube video for learning on the subject. Though my search was not an … Read more...

This year Intelex took part in the awe-inspiring initiative put on by CAMH to help raise awareness towards mental health by participating in One Brave Night.
One Brave Night was Canada’s chance to band together and help the 1 in 5 Canadians that struggle with mental health issues. Our team of Intelexians both from Denver and Toronto came together for a night of:

March, 2017, our EHSQ Community had a Mastermind session with Carsten Busch and Rosa Antonia Carrillo, hosted by Tamara Parris, to discuss the Modern and Traditional Safety Management styles, and the challenges EHS Professionals face with each.
During our sessions we had just over 142 community members share their views in our Members voice survey. During the session, we had several members voiced their challenges and insights learned through their own work experiences.
From our “Member’s Voice” discussion we learned 78% of our members use an Empowering Leadership style in their workplace for safety management, and 43% use the Taylorism /Traditional approach. Rosa shared she was not surprised because when working with Safety Professionals they understand empowerment is the only way to motivate people and get buy-in. Carsten shared that because he works in the Police Organization, the institution is hierarchical. Whereas, his department leader uses a Servant style with … Read more...

A company’s reputation, image, and brand are its most valuable assets. According to a Forbes article, a recent study suggests that 80% of employees aged 18 to 30 will leave a company if they believe it has poor ethics or a weak brand. These are profitable assets, as a company with a reputation for quality and safety can charge more than their competitors for similar products because customers perceive this extra cost as a reflection of superior product and service.
It becomes clear that having a strong and proactive occupational health and safety reputation matters when it comes to protecting and enhancing a business’ brand image and value. In recognition of this, many companies are allocating a significant portion of their budgets to maintaining and enhancing corporate social responsibility.
