LIFE is the proactive, operational, and behavior-based component of GIS’s comprehensive Safety Management Program. While our Corporate HSE group focuses on compliance, training, and incident response, the LIFE processes specifically cover Operational Safety, through: comprehensive work planning; increasing awareness of work area & task risks; intervention techniques for redirecting at-risk behaviors; embedded field presence; quarterly initiatives focused on observed areas of risk; and visible leadership engagement.
GIS measures performance success through leading indicators: audits, inspections, observations, training, and our employees’, partners’, and clients’ perception of our quality and safety performance. We utilize lagging indicators as a benchmark to see if our successes are proving effective. Through trend analysis, we adjust the training and observations, audits and inspections to move us to zero incidents.
