Highly Advanced Safety Observations Program

At Thompson Industrial Services we are constantly improving our safety culture using leading indicators to proactively reduce incidents and manage risk. We want to demonstrate commitment to our core values of Safety, Integrity & Quality by utilizing more consistent methods to collect data and provide analyses in order to make better business decisions.

Over the last few years, we have implemented the SafetyNet tool used by all field employees and management to “find, fix, and report” both the good and bad. SafetyNet’s predictive model helps us identify our most risky jobs by work type, sites, and teammates so we can allocate our leadership and safety resources to mitigate risk. We can reduce injuries by anticipating the next most likely incident by focusing our efforts on modifying the environment and coaching desired behaviors.

All employees on a job site can input data mobily in real time. All data from every job site  is collected for trend analysis, and a severity report is generated. Findings of high enough severity trigger immediateemail alerts to all safety professionals and the responsible leadership. That way, we are able to facilitate critical communication across the company to quickly correct safety issues.
