Workforce Engagement

Engaging the workforce to improve worksite safety

The Workforce Engagement Support Team (WEST) aims to support the workforce through proactive engagement to improve safety for our industry.

A fully engaged workforce is one of the most effective barriers against incidents and accidents. Engaged workers will feel empowered to raise awareness of unsafe situations, which can enhance a culture of safety at worksites. WEST works towards creating this culture.


Teashack News

The workgroup creates Teashack News, a quarterly publication which aims to engage the workforce through topical news stories and sharing of best practice, resulting in a better informed and safer workforce.

Workforce Engagement Toolkit

Building a workforce in which everyone feels able to actively participate, share their views and free to challenge, is crucial to improving safety and reducing accidents and incidents. Through its Workforce Engagement Support Team, Step Change in Safety provides the Workforce Engagement Toolkit to help companies embed this culture in their organisations.

The toolkit allows companies to measure and improve their levels of workforce engagement at specific worksites and understand strengths and weaknesses, and develop improvement action plans.

Central to the toolkit is a unique worksite survey that asks questions around visibility, communication, involvement, support, challenge and participation. Alongside the survey, a range of supplementary information is also available to download.
