Introducing Safety I’s™

On the basis of research and experience Green-Jakobsen has developed a model with the purpose of providing shipping companies and its employees with 5 safety culture virtues. These virtues should be directed, decided, cultivated, monitored, corrected and shaped by its leaders in order to develop a mature and strong safety culture.

The Safety I’s™ can be described as both organisational and individual safety culture fundamentals that are applicable for any organisation. These are:

INSIGHT – the extent to which every level of the organisation has the needed knowledge, understanding and application capacity to live a mature safety culture
INNOVATION – the extent to which every level of the organisation has an innovative approach towards safety and constant safety improvement by keeping an open mind for improvements, new perspectives, seeking for new solutions and by constantly being proactive
INFLUENCE – the extent to which every level of the organisation has the needed understanding and appreciation on how they can influence the positive development of the safety culture
INTERVENTION – the extent to which every level of the organisation understands and appreciates the importance of an intervention culture, and intrinsically intervenes constructively when observing unsafe acts and conditions
INTEGRATION – the extent to which every level of the organisation integrates the safety mindset, safety procedures and safety initiatives in every work processes, tasks, dispositions and strategies

The purpose of each ‘Safety I’ is to provide the safety leader with safety culture goals, possibilities and options. In short, the Safety I’s™ provide the safety leader with:

A shared perception of the behavioural traits to be possessed by all crew members
An understanding of what are believed to be important safety culture virtues
Safety culture direction
A simple safety maturity assessment tool
Legalised areas to be evaluated and developed by the safety leader
A safety culture terminology
A safety culture terminology
