When Should You Talk to Workers?
How often should you go out on site? Obviously, there is no right answer to that question, but an inquiry into a big rail accident in the UK did attempt to provide some guidelines, and can obviously be generalised to other industries.
According to the inquiry, best practice suggests at least one hour a week should be formally scheduled into the diaries of senior executives for this task. Senior executives should get on site one hour a week. There are very few senior executives that measure up to that kind of standard.
Professor Andrew Hopkins discusses this topic in the safety training video.
