Managing Organisational Change

Over the last 12 months, many companies have embarked upon significant change programs.  To meet falling commodity prices and project demands, many companies are considering restructures, mergers, acquisitions, staffing reductions, more or less reliance on contractors and schedule changes.  If these changes are not well planned or implemented, they can vastly impact safety performance.  This type of change can also negatively affect employee health and wellbeing, morale and overall performance. 

Some descriptionSome descriptionTo avoid negative safety outcomes, it is important to plan organisational change in a systematic, credible way.  This includes assessing the risk of the intended change outcome, as well as the change process (which is often overlooked).  A key component of the risk assessment should include structured consultation with key stakeholders, including contractors, throughout the change process, making sure all safety-related tasks and responsibilities are understood and managed.
