In December, IOGP published the Start Work Checks (SWC), a human performance tool designed to enable organizations to implement the Life-Saving Rules more effectively in the workplace.
They are now available in 25 additional languages: Arabic, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Urdu, and Vietnamese.
The SWCs are recommended for companies who have launched, or are planning to launch, the Life-Saving Rules. The Checks enable frontline workers to confirm that the controls/safeguards designed to prevent fatalities and serious injuries are in place and functioning at the exact location a task is to be done, just prior to starting it. The Checks are designed to encourage workers to have empowering conversations about what performing a task safely really means, what they need to do, and if those things are present and functioning.
