Research and insurance data suggests that more than eight out of ten work site injuries and accidents are caused by human error, resulting in lost time, lost profit, and loss of life. In today’s economy, safety programs are not a luxury—they are the key to staying in business. Safety is sustainability.
Traditional safety approaches have been only marginally effective in reducing the human error trend in industries such as construction and manufacturing, and even the best behavior-based safety programs are constantly looking for an edge to improve. In 2003, Convergent Performance launched the Global War on Error (GWOE)—a nontraditional approach that stresses personal responsibility, accountability, and uncompromising compliance, accompanied by a complete set of tools to accomplish significant error-reduction results.
High-risk construction, manufacturing, and oil and gas companies rely on us to teach their teams the tools they need to build a long-term culture of safety.
