Projects per year
Results: The coaching of the six owners/managers result in the identification of 48 safety tasks, of which 85% are solved at follow-up. Meetings with workers result in the prioritization of 29 tasks, 79% of which are accomplished at follow-up. Intervention enterprises have significant increases on six of the eight survey factors, while comparisons increase on only one factor. All enterprises demonstrate significant increases in their safety indexes. Interview data validate and supplement the safety survey and safety index results.
Discussion: Key components of the intervention involve management commitment, worker involvement, and increase in mutual obligations and trust. Diffusion and dissemination lead towards the initiation of culture change, however, it is premature to judge whether sustained culture change has taken place.
Summary and impact on industry: The application of an integrated approach to safety management combining behavior-based and culture change in small enterprises is demonstrated, with some evidence for behavior change and the initiation of safety culture change. The work helps fill the gap in the need for
systematic implementation and evaluation of injury prevention/safety management systems targeted towards small enterprises. Given that over 95% of enterprises in most countries have less than 20 employees, there is great potential for applying the proposed approaches more broadly.
