The critical requirement in successful safety programming is that all management and employees understand the "logic" of their safety activities. Every successful program is individually tailored to an organization and emphasizes the importance of the whole and the interdependence of its parts. One way anyone responsible for a safety program can identify the elements of a successful safety program is to review the approaches and experiences of companies that have developed and implemented effective safety programs. The safety concern for employees will become so strong that employees, supervisors, and managers will be subject to discipline and even dismissal for violating safety responsibilities. Among successful programs, typically, management has some formal system of encouraging all employees to participate actively by reporting hazards and contributing to safety management solutions. Management wants to be convinced that the cost of preventing accidents and injuries will have a payback which they can understand.
