Does HOP improve engagement in safety?

2022-01-25T13:55:43+10:00Tags: , , , , , |

Does HOP improve engagement in safety? A central focus of Human & Organisational Performance is improving engagement with frontline workers. Imagine a workforce that asks to be involved in the process of safety improvement! Here's how it happens with HOP. One of the greatest challenges for safety professionals is keeping the workforce engaged with safety. Checklists, policies, procedures, manuals, codes of practice, regulations and legislation are all vitally important to the safety framework, but they rarely invoke a sense of collaboration, innovation, or allow for variability. These are the ‘rules’ of [...]

How can HOP help you in 2022? Whether you're new to HOP or already implementing the principles, now is the time to shift the safety paradigm. Every organisation has a different approach to how HOP is accepted and adopted. Sometimes the seed of interest sprouts within the senior leadership team, or maybe it has been sparked by a near-miss or event. No matter how that interest grows and develops, every organisation can benefit from understanding that it is people – not programs – who make work safe. Here are some ways [...]

The 5 Principles of HOP

2022-02-09T16:07:26+10:00Tags: , , , , , , |

The five principles of HOP Published by Southpac International The role of the safety profession has traditionally been to minimise harm – to control conditions within operations in order to make work safer. But the programs and processes that have evolved in the traditional view of safety have rarely allowed for the one condition that can’t be controlled: we’re all human. Human and Organisational Performance is essentially about understanding the context and conditions of work. Importantly, HOP is not a program – it’s an operating philosophy that gives us a framework for building more resilient [...]

Getting started with Learning Teams

2021-12-01T10:20:48+10:00Tags: , , , , , , |

Getting started with Learning Teams So you've heard about Learning Teams and want to bring the benefits of Operational Learning into your organisation. But it's not as simple as asking a group of people to talk about how work happens. Here's what you need to introduce Learning Teams successfully. Learning Teams are a valuable method of Operational Learning if they are run with the proper planning, support and purpose. In fact, incorporating Learning Teams without a foundation built on HOP principles could do your organisation more harm than good. While the idea [...]

What are the traits of an effective leader?

2021-12-01T10:22:25+10:00Tags: , , , , , , |

What are the traits of an effective leader? The role of the leader is changing from decision-maker to enabler. Knowing when to step in is just as important as knowing when to step back. An effective leader is too often tied to the notion of the hero – the one with the most information, the most wisdom and experience, and the one who makes all the decisions. But in our modern, complex world of work, it’s becoming increasingly impossible to operate in that way. Add to that all of the books, articles, [...]

How CHEP have adopted HOP to improve safety, engagement and how work is done Global supply chain company, CHEP, started implementing Human and Organisational Performance (HOP) with a pilot in Queensland in 2019. Since then, the organisation has embraced HOP and Learning Teams throughout their APAC operations, and the results have been astounding. Despite the challenges of 2020, CHEP’s focus on using the HOP principles within their facilities didn't stop – especially to ensure valuable conversations continued – and it showed in the strength of their year-on-year results. HOP is weaved throughout [...]

Can you do Learning Teams without doing the New View?

2021-07-12T13:36:28+10:00Tags: , , , , , |

Can you do Learning Teams without doing the New View? Published by Andy Shone In recent times, we've been asked if it’s possible to do Learning Teams without necessarily doing the ‘new view’, Safety II, or HOP? It is true that, by and large, Learning Teams have been associated (thus far) with organisations that are doing, or attempting to incorporate, the new view into their organisation. Does that however mean you have to be doing the new view or Safety II, to successfully implement Learning Teams? Sadly, I have no empirical evidence, and therefore cannot [...]
