Our customers look for solution, often frustrated because they struggle balancing quality, safety, and productivity. At Sentis, Americas and Europe (part of the Propulo Group), our work is grounded in the idea that when one element of this triangle improves, all three improve. Within our safety practice, we focus on safety first because at the end of the day, what matters most is every one of us going home to the people and experiences we love. You can't, however, solve safety without building the foundation through culture, process and leadership.

Sentis, Americas and Europe partners with clients to create sustainable improvements in safety culture. Our goal is to help organizations develop and maintain a safety culture that empower employees to go above and beyond basic compliance with safety processes and regulations.

We work hard to inspire your employees to make safe choices for themselves, for their teams and for the organization. We also give leaders the knowledge and skills to influence their teams to a better safety outcome. With our world class process team, Sentis will help your organizations set up the necessary processes, systems and structures to support safe culture.

Our approach is effective. Through our culture change interventions, we have helped our clients achieve:

• Reduction in incident and injury frequency rates
• Reduction in average compensation claim cost
• Reduction in client insurance premiums
• Improved worker safety attitudes and safety behaviors
• Increased leader safety behaviors
• Increased employee engagement and productivity

our approach

Using proven insights from psychology and neuroscience, we focus on creating practice, evidence-based applications – starting with the individual. We know you cannot force a safety culture change from the top-down. So we focus on the individuals to help them find the right mindset, or attitude, to consistently choose safe behaviors. By helping each employee consistently make the safe choice, your organization creates the conditions for a great safety culture.

culture assessment

Using a tailored culture assessment process, Propulo will start by assessing your safety culture against four core components: People, Leader, Practices and Environment.

We spend time listening and learning about your employees through interviews, focus groups and observations to understand the prevailing attitudes, thoughts and behaviors. Our range of diagnostic tools to assess safety culture and climate include:

• Safety Climate Survey
• Onsite Safety Evaluation
• Safety Leadership Assessment
• A suite of psychometric assessments designed to measure individual attitudes towards safety

By understanding the current maturity of your organization, we can help you chart a course to make smart, stepwise improvements over time.

design & implement

Working closely with your key stakeholders, we design a culture change program to create long-term improvements. There are many levers to pull to create change. While our approach is highly customized to your organization’s needs, it may include:

• Launching a committee to help lead the change
• Providing training to frontline employees and leadership
• Running a train-the-trainer to empower your internal change agents to lead trainings
• Offering coaching to key executives and leaders responsible for the change
• Helping redesign any processes that may be hindering your cultural maturity
• Communications strategies, including message development and dissemination, toolkits and web applications

sustain & measure

With a long-term change program, it takes focus, continued innovation and ongoing commitment. We partner closely with you and your change leaders to help manage and measure the change over time.

To understand impact, we use both staged and live data capture to assess the efficacy of culture change interventions. This allows you to monitor the progress of your organization. Measuring can include leading indicators, lagging indicators, pulse attitude surveys and full post-intervention assessments.

At the end of the day, our clients consistently see not only a safer workforce, but one that is more engaged, has higher commitment levels – key elements of safe, high-quality and productive work environments.
