Headquartered in Norway and employing over 5,000 people across more than 300 sites, this global aquaculture firm engaged Sentis to help address its critical safety challenges. Specifically the need to create a more positive safety culture to improve site and organisational safety performance. Using a train-the-trainer model, Sentis assisted the client to drive ongoing safety culture change, including the development of internal ambassadors and targeted strategies to embed program concepts for the long-term.

SOLUTION

Over the course of the organisation-wide engagement, Sentis conducted the following activities:

A comprehensive on-site scoping process was conducted to identify strategic safety goals, as well as the company's key strength and opportunity areas. These insights were used to inform program development and implementation.
Sixty-four internal facilitators undertook a rigorous development program to up-skill in the Sentis concepts and safety culture change program. This included a combination of formal training, coaching, webinars and evaluation. With ongoing support from Sentis, internal facilitators then administered the safety program to staff at all levels.
Due to the diverse nature of the client's operations, supporting materials were translated into Norwegian, Spanish, French and Dutch to further aid training transfer. Sentis also assisted each site to establish 'Implementation Teams', tasked to drive local ownership and engagement in the safety program, and roll-out embedding initiatives.

IMPACT

Following the implementation of the Sentis training program, the client saw positive improvements in safety attitudes and performance including a 31% reduction in LTIFR over the first six months, when compared to the same period the previous year.

Participant feedback has also been extremely positive:

  • 82% of employees believe their personal safety performance has improved
  • 78% of employees report thinking more about safety issues
  • In the month following training, 67% of employees experienced a situation where new knowledge and skills protected themselves or others from harm
31% reduction in LTIFR achieved over the first six months, when compared to the same period the previous year.
