Leading Safety Works, a project management safety certification program developed by Crane Industry Services LLC and Okos Partners now includes behavioral simulation tools.
Announced earlier this year, Leading Safety Works establishes critical, effective, and lasting connections between project and people strategies. The program is based on a practical 90-day planning system that problem solving effective and replicable. The system helps project leaders and managers identify critical opportunities to change conditions and improve practices on the job site.
Simulations used in the program will be based on actual events rooted in construction or utility applications.
“Often accidents happen when the task is something the crew has done a million times, but in this instance, something changes – a distraction, such as weather conditions, a new crew leader, last-minute work order changes, or pressure to hurry,” said Debbie Dickinson, CEO of CIS. “Working with leading simulation technology developers, we are using behavioral simulation software to assess the steps an individual makes when faced with real work scenarios. The results will show whether the decisions the individual makes will keep people safe and the project on track, or if they are making choices that may steer the project off course.”
