Study Overview

H&S organizations must position their staff and resources to deliver the highest impact on workplace health and safety. Most H&S organizations have moved away from frontline activities and daily responsibility for safety activities. Instead, they favor higher-level standards development, training and oversight for H&S standards and regulations to deliver a greater impact. However, moving away from daily activities to more of a consultative and influential function requires that H&S organizations clearly define their roles and responsibilities. This 22-page document provides strategies that H&S organizations can use to carefully establish these roles and responsibilities.

Key Topics

  • Creating and Implementing Standards and Policies
  • Pushing Ownership for H&S Activities to Line Personnel
  • Compliance Enforcement and Performance Measurement
  • Resource Management


Sample Best Practices

1. Tier H&S responsibilities by corporate, business unit and functional line areas to define the rollout and execution of H&S standards clearly.
- One utilities and energy holding company has a well-defined process for rolling out standards. H&S activities are segmented into corporate, business unit and functional line areas. Each organizational level has its own area of ownership and responsibility for implementing standards.
2. Invest greater discretion and decision-making authority in operational managers to tailor standards to individual business unit needs.
- Some H&S organizations designate H&S authority more broadly, by virtue of their size and organizational structure. One benchmark partner, for example, invests greater discretion for acceptance and modification of policies and procedures in the vice presidents who oversee management of its separate power generation and T&D operations.
3. Assign daily and hands-on assignments to operations management to allow field H&S staff to take on more of a safety compliance and monitoring role.
- One company recently reorganized the job assignments of its H&S field personnel and reporting responsibility in an effort to create efficiency and cut down on H&S staff size.
