We've developed a helpful guide to get you started. On any given day, we're contacted by safety professionals looking to start HOP in their organisation.

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 [...]

The 5 Principles of HOP

2022-11-10T13:00:59+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

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 [...]

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.

HOP is weaved throughout [...]

Can you do Learning Teams without doing the New View?

2022-11-03T11:40:19+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 [...]

Moving towards the HOP approach

2021-02-08T10:50:29+10:00Tags: , , , |

Moving towards the HOP approach How well do most organisations in Australia generally fare when it comes to optimal human and organisational performance? Understanding how Australian, or indeed international corporations fare with regards to Human and Organisational Performance (HOP), requires us to reflect upon both what we measure, and what optimal performance looks like. The term Human and Organizational Performance describes the interactions and inter-dependencies of humans and organizations in the execution of work. Used within a professional practice context, it has come to be paradigmatic of a broad range of relativist and phenomenological thinking within [...]
