www.drummondltd.com 21 PERSON-CENTERED SAFETY (PCS) INDUSTRIAL SAFETY CULTURAL TRANSFORMATION Designing Skills Model Skills Measurement and Feedback (DISC) Program provides ongoing support throughout the process with two de-partments, industrial safety and oc-cupational health, that make it possi-ble to report incidents directly to the Vice President of Human Resources. In all activities, both labor and non-labor, there are risks that affect or may affect people’s health and safety. Aware of this fact, Drum-mond Ltd. has implemented a Safety and Health Management System in its activities, aimed at promoting safe and healthy working environ-ments that allow the organization to identify and control its health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, support compliance with the law and improve overall health and safety performance. The health and safety of our employees, contractors and visitors are our primary concern. From its inception, Drummond Ltd. has conducted its operations without losing sight of the importance of industrial safety. This was the source of the decision to imple-ment the highest standards with regards to accident prevention. Strict compliance with indus-trial safety standards is a feature of Drummond Ltd. and one of its corpo-rate guidelines. Each one of the com-pany’s areas always carry out their activities under the idea of identify-ing, evaluating and controlling the risks associated with the activities performed, in conjunction with stakeholders, ensuring compliance in practice with our Health, Industrial Safety and Environment policy. A high percentage of the causes of accidents are due to persons’ ac-tions or omissions. Therefore, the ac-cident prevention program includes training programs at all levels of the organization with elements to con-stantly reinforce the concept of self-care in its own employees and the employees of all of its contractors. In the area of self-care, we have evolved from “someone else’s responsibility to our own responsi-bility.” Today, we have an industrial safety program with Managers, Superintendents, Supervisors, Operators, Technicians and Con-tractor Employees with greater empowerment and leadership. The figure to the left illus-trates the process that has been implemented since 2012 for a cultural transformation from an industrial safety perspective for Monthly Employees (Managers, Superintendents, Supervisors, etc.) and Hourly Employees (technicians and operators) to make safety a value. This strat-egy is designed to reinforce the supervisor’s role as the industrial safety leader, constantly teach-ing and applying the safe work rules, standards and procedures in each of the activities they lead. ACHIEVEMENTS • A greater level of commitment to prevention by each oper-ator, technician, supervisor, superintendent and even each contractor employee permeates their work, cer-tain that it is for their own well-being and that of their families and, as a result, it has caused a significant reduc-tion in the accident rate. • The number of work acci-dents recorded and reported to the ARL has decreased, as compared to 2010, by 26%. • Greater commitment by contractors’ managers to preventing accidents.
