Safety Goes to the Front Line

Even companies with high safety performance must focus on continuous improvement. That is why a global leader in the construction and maintenance of transport infrastructure turned to Caterpillar Safety Services to enhance its safety culture.

With the help of experts from Caterpillar Safety Services, the organization launched a Journey to Goal Zero as a corporate-wide safety program involving 5,000 employees. The approach was simple: make safety everyone’s responsibility. Through cross-functional rapid improvement workshops, they turned over control of safety to employees in the field, asking them to rebuild safety processes from the ground up based on their frontline knowledge. The other significant change: using positive recognition—rather than focusing on what’s wrong—to measure performance.

On the other side of the transformation was an empowered team that began to take continuous improvement into their own hands—precisely what needed to happen to move from average to excellent.
