Sunstainability of Zero
ZII is the only source for Zero Injury Culture Building Educational Modules for your employees. This knowledge equips employees to proactively participate in creating a safety culture where they become co-owners of the safety culture.
What is the Zero Injury Safety Leadership Concept?
“The Zero Injury Concept” as the Zero Injury Institute uses allows a safety performance norm that allows the achievement of a million hours or more with Zero Recordable Injuries.
What is the principle challenge in teaching the Zero Injury Concept?
The principle challenge in Zero Injury training is to change the historical mindset everyone has that “injuries happen after all.” This attitude born out of decades old safety history of those in the construction industry has to be addressed.
How do the Modules Help?
The ZII zero injury education modules provide these foundational details. Also critical to success ZII includes job specific safety role information each must have to function as an active and effective participant in creating a zero injury culture.
What are some of the problems in using the term Zero Injury?
Many employers today have set Zero Injury as the" goal or target" outcome of their safety program. These will fall into three groups;
Those using the Construction Industry Institute (CII) Zero Injury Research;
Those who are using only some of it and;
Those that are not using the research, often because they do not know it exists.
Why Zero Injury Training?
The CII research on how to create a zero injury safety culture is very job specific, yet few employers in the construction industry seem dedicated to the complete and effective use of all the research data. There is an ever present tendency for employers to begin the culture creation process while using some of the data, but not all.
How much time is required to complete a module?
The sit-time required for each module is approximately one hour each,
How do the modules improve Zero Injury training?
In all work there are conflicts in the “time of need” for the training and the “availability of the job specific resources,” and the “availability of trained trainers.” Most employers are not equipped to sift the CII research and refine the training modules for specific groups of employees; do the training group by group and accomplish all this when needed.
Do the modules for Safety Specialists and Project Manager include the other modules?
Yes. Since the Project Manager and the Safety Specialist must work together to create the zero injury culture thus both must take all five modules. It is essential that both be fully informed on the roles and responsibilities of the other.
Do these modules reduce the amount of time it takes for craft safety orientations?
That depends; if the company is trying to provide this training internally then yes, it can reduce training time. However, the challenge for any company interested in using the Zero Injury Safety Leadership Concept is the timely and consistent education of their employees.
Will the modules enhance our safety training effectiveness and thus improve our performance?
Yes, implementing the CII research in a company safety culture requires the self creation of safety training modules designed around the CII Zero Injury research outcomes.
Do you mean the training modules can reduce our work load?
Yes. With the ZII modules a company can easily train all their employees as they arrive on the project site in the Zero Injury technology. The modules ensure a sustainability of teh zero injury culture. If training is self-performed, properly done it is a great volume of work, especially in industries that have significant turnover in the employee count.
What about the cost of this training?
ZII training fees are very moderate beginning at $25 for a worker certification. A foreman is $38; the Superintendent is priced at $50. The Project Manager and Safety Specialist are priced at $100.00. The modudules take a building block approach. For instance teh Project Manager takes all modules.
If we can do this training ourselves, why should we use ZII?
Even when a company successfully creates the zero injury modules, the timely delivery and the consistent quality of the training is very difficult to accomplish. Often companies will lose the talent being used for this training, and then are faced with the difficult task of retraining the new trainers.
Where does the Experience Based Training information come from?
One of the significant contributors to the advent of The Zero Injury Safety Leadership Concept has been Emmitt J. Nelson, who served as Chairman of the 1990 CII Zero Accidents Task Force. Emmitt has for the past 25 years, since retiring from Shell Oil Company, provided consulting services and media papers on the Zero Injury Safety Leadership Concept.
