Your Safety – Your Choice
Over the past year, Willbros has been working to find ways to help our people better understand the impact of their day-to-day choices when it comes to safety. As an organization, we are very proud of our strong safety culture and Safety Management system, and the focus we place on ensuring our people are fully trained in all aspects of safe work.
Through our Safety Program, we have established powerful awareness campaigns and systems around effective interventions and “Stop & Think” moments, and have developed industry-leading programs for hazard assessment and competency. As comprehensive as these programs and policies are, a major determining factor of their efficacy relies on the human element and personal commitment from our people. As the Willbros Safety Vision reads:
“Great Safety isn’t about policies and procedures. Great safety is about openness, honesty, involvement, communication and caring for one another”
Essentially, great safety is more than just words on paper; it is a reflection of the choices we make day in, day out on our job sites and in our personal lives. We want to help every member of our team realize that every choice made on the job site be it around whether or not to follow procedures, take short cuts or stop unsafe work, has an impact on the safe execution of every task and ultimately has consequences to our people.
With these goals in mind, we have created a scenario-based video titled: Your Safety – Your Choice. This powerful video speaks not only to procedure and statistics but is intended to touch the hearts and minds of our people in a truly impactful way.
We want as many people to see this video as possible so we are asking you to please share it with your friends, family, co-workers, and colleagues. Our hope is that it will have a lasting impact on those who watch it and foster their commitment to making the safest choices every day. Together we can make a difference.
