Lone worker safety requires vigilant hazard recognition, mindful awareness of at-risk behaviors, and effective self-management.
Lone worker populations require more than traditional behavior-based safety systems to maintain safety on the job. With advancements in technology, fewer and fewer teams of people can be found working in close proximity, leading to an increase in lone worker populations. While traditional behavior-based safety systems have successfully improved safe behavior in the workplace, these systems rely on peer observation and feedback, which are difficult, if not impossible for lone workers. Without real-time feedback, it’s easy to lose focus on safety-critical behaviors. Training and reminders are not enough to build safe habits. ADI helps lone workers tap into personal values and gives them the skills and tools they need to effectively manage their own behavior and stay safe on the job.
ADI's approach is a lone worker BBS process that goes beyond self-observation. It provides the tools for lone workers to develop effective self-management plans, implement the plans wherever they work, and make necessary adjustments to optimize the development of safe habits. While the focus is on helping lone workers help themselves, ADI's process ensures management provides necessary support to maximize success.
ADI’s process is built on the science of behavior and our more than 35 years of experience in helping clients develop and implement behavior-based solutions for safety and other key performance areas or is designed to be used on its own or in combination with behavior-based safety programs and/or ADI’s Safety Leadership process, and blends training and planning with practical actions for sustained improvements in critical safe behaviors.
Through ADI's lone worker safety, we enable clients to
- Link safety to personal values
- Identify the triggers for at-risk behaviors
- Self-track safe and at-risk behaviors
- Self-deliver feedback and positive reinforcement
- Augment self-management with feedback and reinforcement from peers and management
No one wants to get hurt on the job, but in today’s fast-paced environment it’s all too easy to get caught up in trying to “get the job done” by taking occasional short cuts or unknowingly developing at-risk habits. ADI delivers a self-management process for improving lone worker safety that is founded in science and grounded in values.
