Our Point of View
No one would claim excellence for an organization that is only good at avoiding disaster—losing the least market share or posting the smallest loss. So why should our thinking about safety performance be any different? Great organizations innovate and exceed expectations. They define the market in which they compete. And they approach the wellbeing of their employees, customers, and community as an essential part of their mandate.
At BST, we believe that safety excellence is much more than a number. No matter what your objectives, our work with you is based on four key principles:
Safety is a sustainability imperative
The safety goal is inseparable from the wellbeing of the organization. Getting there requires an organization where leaders and employees engage everyone as partners in improving safety.
Safety is a platform
Reducing risk for all of a company’s stakeholders takes finely-tuned systems, leadership, and culture—strengths essential to excellence in any endeavor.
Safety is systemic
Safety outcomes are created at the working interface, the configuration of equipment, processes, systems, and what people do. But this interface is shaped by people and systems throughout the organization; excellence requires a comprehensive approach that manages all the parts of safety under a collective system.
Safety is strategic
Forward-thinking organizations recognize the fundamental link between workplace safety and organizational excellence. Approached strategically, rather than as a set of tactics and programs, safety can help your business focus on short-term priorities and realize long-term goals.
