Health & Safety Change Management Butterfly

Health & Safety Change Management Strategies

Managers should use health & safety change management strategies and tools to implement new safety practices in organizations.

Improving safety programs involves changing how things are done in the workplace. Health & Safety change management is required during safety program improvements. A great new workplace safety idea can fail because of poor leadership during implementation of the new process. Executives and managers must identify and manage how the changes caused by a new safety ideas affect their organization’s stakeholders and business systems.

A well-designed implementation plan for a new safety procedure includes identifying, in advance, how it will affect the business’ processes and people. Risk and hazard analysis is helpful. Then, a plan can be developed to prevent potential problems. Tools, like the University of Windsor’s Management of Change Form , are useful to help identify issues that may undermine the implementation of a new procedure.

Since safety improvements involve asking individual to do their jobs differently, employees are greatly affected by these types of changes. Others who interact with the organization, such as customers, suppliers and the public, may also require assistance coping with new business procedures. If people do not understand why change is required, this can cause problems incorporating the new idea into practice in a workplace. Even if  supported by everyone, it can still can  be difficult for people to adopt new ideas.

Health & Safety change management involves planning for changes and then supporting individuals as they learn, problem-solve, adjust and accept new realities. Change can cause employees distress related to learning new tasks and adjusting to alterations to jobs and personal routines. Employees who are support by managers find it easier to adopt new procedures. Unsupported workers can become stressed or confused and negative outcomes, such as poor employee morale or safety incidents, can occur.

Identifying risks and planning health & safety change management strategies does not  guarantee smooth transitions to new business procedures.  Not all problems can be prevented. During times of change, managers must show strong leadership and guide their teams through the changes required to achieve safety program improvements.

Starting a new job? Here’s how to fit in!

If you are starting a new job and are looking for some icebreakers you came to the right place! Here is your guide on how to make a lasting impression at your new job:

Take Initiative, Introduce yourself: On your first day of work come in with a friendly, positive attitude. Put your ego aside and introduce yourself to your colleagues. You don’t need to wait for an introduction or an opening. 

Bring treats: Food is the way to anyone’s heart. Bring a sweet treat everyone can enjoy (cookies, fruit, brownies etc…) Chances are no one will pass up a nice snack and this gives you an opportunity to get to know your colleagues. 

Be interested and Listen: Don’t try to be the most interesting person in the room. Listen to what your colleagues are saying, be interested and relate to them. You’ll really get to know your team if you take interest in what they’re saying. Listening is the best way to building rapport and gaining trust. 

Invite yourself to lunch: Talk to your colleagues, ask them what time they take lunch and if you could sit with them. Lunch is a nice time of day for most people. They’re able to recharge with some food and take a break. You’ll find lunchtime is the best time to really connect. 

Don’t ever forget your salutations: Always greet your colleagues/managers in the morning and always say goodbye upon your departure. Part of being friendly and positive is greeting your colleagues and people do take note when you don’t pay them any salutations.

New Grads

Top 3 Job Searching Tips for New Grads

We all know job searching is no walk in the park when you’re a new grad. The frustrations stem from a lack of experience. Many postings require 1-2 years of experience and you don’t have it. There’s no reason to fret, utilize these three tips and it will lead you to the path of a new opportunity!

Tip #1: Outline life experience on your resume/cover letter

At this point you’re a new grad and don’t have relevant industry experience. What you do have is life experience. You’ve successfully gone through the entire program, received your degree or diploma. Along the way you’ve done many group projects, volunteered, completed an internship. Whatever it is you did for your time during school highlight it. Make it the center of your resume/cover letter and relate it to why you would be a good fit for the job. 

Tip #2 – Don’t downplay small companies

Many new grads often go after the large, multinational companies. The ones where they feel they will be offered a grand opportunity to gain experience. While it is true of big companies, they’re also inundated with resumes, and have a huge pool of candidates to choose from. Do your research, find a small company within your industry. Small companies are more willing to give you an opportunity to get your foot in the door without experience. They are willing to train and mentor new grads to grow with their company. 

Tip #3 – Always touch base/follow up

One of the most important aspects of job searching is taking the time to touch base or follow up. When you first send your resume in why not call them a few days later to see if they have received it. It gives you a chance to introduce yourself, and it sets you apart from the people who don’t touch base. Subsequently, if you have interviewed somewhere follow up with them. Get some feedback and see what the status is. When you put yourself out there anything can happen.

New grads take on a whole new approach to job searching, take these tips and create opportunities for yourself!
