Some Professional Guidance On Astute Plans Of Whmis Online

Lianne Lefsrud, an assistant professor in engineering safety and risk management at the U of A, led the academic team on this survey and says there are two sides to that argument. Check out the latest Oilweek now for insight into Canada's oilpatch people, technology and trends. “Some research suggests that when the price of oil is high, there are more resources available for safety and leads to better safety outcomes,” she says. “But there’s other research that suggests companies throw money at things without being necessarily more careful.” Drawing on an online sample of almost 1,300 respondents, a key finding of the safety culture survey is that the overall maturity of Alberta’s safety culture is perceived as proactive. This is a high rating within the survey’s five-tier maturity scale: vulnerable, reactive, compliant, proactive and transformational. The most common answer characterizing the proactive level of safety is, “We try to anticipate safety problems before they arise.” “What we’ve done here that hasn’t been done before is look at the maturity of the industry as a whole rather than at individual companies. This allows us to compare companies on the safety landscape of this industry. Although this is not a representative survey, among the companies who responded, we show a positive relationship between increased maturity and improved safety performance. It’s nice to see,” Lefsrud says. Also nice to see is that only two or three per cent of respondents judged their companies as vulnerable, while the second-largest group of respondents perceived their companies to be at the highest end of the spectrum: transformational.
