Only after the highest level of decision-makers understand what's necessary to transform a culture, can real change begin. The ZIP Leadership Roundtable is prescribed as the first step in Caterpillar Safety Services’ culture-change process because of how it brings together the management team to ask the tough questions: What do we believe vs. what we say we believe? Is attention to detail applied to safety in the same way as finance? Are near misses celebrated and put to use? Are you any closer to sustainable zero-incident performance?
With a Caterpillar Safety Services-facilitated work session, your executive team is better able to rally around the basics of the unique workplace culture, while gathering the insight to engage your most powerful catalyst of all: involvement.
A Caterpillar Safety Services specialist facilitates the Roundtable to open a dialog behind "what needs to happen" for setting into motion an internally-led continuous improvement initiative. An experienced safety consultant also explains how proven accountability concepts elevate safety leadership, heighten awareness, overcome complacency and keeps people from harm. The result is an enhanced perspective on how and why heightened risk awareness demands the same level of urgency as quality control, cost containment and delivery goals.
