CULTURE CHANGE WORKS GLOBALLY FOR GE

Pat Cowher, EHS Manager, led the 5-year safety culture transformation across GE’s global business unit, GE Inspection and Repair Services.

OUR APPROACH

The concept is surprisingly simple: to apply the well-developed principles of organizational culture change to occupational safety and health. Instead of concentrating on the technical aspects of safety – equipment and its use – the idea of culture change is to address the hidden beliefs, norms and assumptions that govern the people side.

TESTIMONIALS

“We’ve reduced our injury rates by over 90%. I would definitely recommend the cultural change approach. It’s a comprehensive approach to the health and safety problem. It takes into account not only the facilities, the equipment, the programs; but it also takes into account the people side, the behavior side.”

Patrick Frazee
Manager Occupational Health and Safety

Safety Supervisor

“This method is able to determine root causes of emotions, feelings which could/would affect safety performance. It is easy to understand and simple to implement.”

“With the help of Culture Change Consultants and this process we reduced our injury rate 65% and reduced our lost time injury rate 75%. We saved the business 5 million dollars over those 5 years….It is something that made a huge difference in our business, but not only our business but in the lives of our employees and their families which is really what the safety program is all about.”

“The serious injuries have been reduced by almost two thirds of where we were when we started. That means a lot more people are going home safely and unhurt at the end of the day… I can tell you without a doubt, if you don’t have the combination of both the rules, regulations, formations, standards, procedures etc. AND the culture, it just doesn’t work.”

Peter Cistaro
Senior Vice President Gas and Electric

Safety Manager

“There have been tangible benefits from the Grassroots Safety Leadership process. Our recordable incident rate has steadily declined. The number of work refusals and conflict around safety has SIGNIFICANTLY decreased!”

“There was no going back. Safety became part of the culture. We were no longer willing to accept any practice or tool that was less-than-safe. The culture would simply not allow things to be done wrong.”
