What we do in this particular sector.

Health care workers are exposed to a complex variety of health and safety hazards everyday including:

  • biological hazards (TB, Hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, SARS)
  • chemical hazards (glutaraldehyde, ethylene oxide, etc.)
  • physical hazards (noise, radiation, slips trips, & falls)
  • ergonomic hazards (heavy lifting, twisting)
  • psychosocial hazards (burnout, violence, & stress)
  • fire and explosion hazards (from use of oxygen, alcohol, sanitizing gels, etc.)

Research shows that protecting healthcare workers positively influences patient care quality and overall strengthening of the health system. Unsafe working conditions often lead to healthcare worker attrition. At a time when the global shortage of healthcare personnel has reached crisis levels, maintaining a proactive safety culture has never been more challenging.

We help hospitals, medical offices, and emergency medical services agencies train their new and existing employees to reduce risk and save lives within the workplace.

The way we approach training, focusing on both the how and the why, we are teaching while at the same time strengthening your safety culture. Using your employees and your equipment lends credibility to the message and promotes your safety “brand” at the same time.

Medstar - Ambulance

Medstar

Medstar, one of the largest EMS Agencies in Texas, wanted to ensure they were selecting the safest, most responsible employees for their Paramedic, EMT, and Supply Tech roles. Our performance experts constructed and validated personality assessments and structured interviews for each position.

Their knowledge of how to improve safety competencies in the workforce and how to execute in a practical manner have been quite impressive.

Our Safety Campaigns.

Sometimes a simple eLearning module is all it takes to move the safety needle. Other times you need a more sophisticated, multi-faceted solution.

We can help diagnose learning challenges and develop the right-sized solution that fits your audience.

How We Do It.

What’s a safety campaign? It’s a targeted effort to change behavior and improve culture with consistent and effective messaging and learning opportunities.

Project Start.

We kick off with a meeting of the minds in the form of an interview, workshop, or even just a phone call to get a handle on your needs, scope, and your culture.

Planning.

Data gathering to derive campaign goals, learning outcomes, performance measures and feedback mechanisms . At the end of this phase we will have an idea of all the deliverables that will be included in your campaign.

Design.

Creating a unique “brand” just for you including tailored logo, artwork, and messaging. During this phase we also nail down treatments and storyboards. At the end of this phase we will have agreement on what your campaign will look like.

Development Sprints.

Our developers will work with your SMEs to professionally produce, review, and refine your deliverables. Close, consistent, contact is key. This phase will end with your approval of deliverables that will exceed your expectations.

Deployment.

Depending on the type of media we use for your campaign, our project managers will help you rollout the deliverables and obtain feedback and analysis. At the end of this phase you will have outcome data on the effectiveness of the program.

Reinforcement.

We can help build on improvements by impacting other human capital areas affecting safety. Although our safety training is our core service, we can help with other functions that dramatically impact safety as well.
