What is ACT(S)?

ACT(S), short for Accelerated Culture Transformation (Safety), offers a comprehensive strategy aimed at swiftly transforming your safety culture to its highest maturity level. It enables this transformation within a span of 6-12 months, facilitated by a tailored transformation.

The process starts with a thorough assessment of the organisation’s safety culture, examining policies, procedures, communication channels, leadership practices, and employee attitudes. This forms the basis for a tailored transformation plan developed in close collaboration with organisational leadership. Through targeted training and communication initiatives, employees are empowered to prioritise safety, supported by leadership’s unwavering commitment to fostering a culture of safety.

How is ACT(S) implemented?

ACT(S) follows a structured 4-phase process, grounded in Fusion’s innovative Codebreaker OSH framework. The 4 phases are:

Phase 1

Establishing Direction & Ownership

In this initial phase, the client’s operational health is diagnosed and assessed using the Codebreaker framework. Subsequently, a customised strategy is devised for further implementation across the next phases from both the Executive Leadership and Operational Leadership teams. The ownership and commitment from both of these groups will play a pivotal role in this culture transformation.

a. Objective:

Set the leadership tone for
the ACT(s) program

One of the first tasks in Phase 1 is to engage and align leadership at the Executive and Operational Level by facilitating a combined workshop with the Executive Leadership Group and the ACT(S) Leadership Group. This workshop will clearly define the leadership challenge and expectations for the Operational Leadership Group. 

Solution:

ACT(S)
Leadership Workshop

b. Objective:

Discover the prevailing safety culture
of each operational site or facility

This is essential to provide a basis for an appropriately tailored ACT(S) strategy.  We use the Codebreaker Assessment Tool (CAT) to determine the current state of safety and health in the business / project. The CAT examines four distinct areas of a safety culture to indicate how close or far away a company is to achieving a high reliability cultural maturity.

Solution:

Codebreaker Assessment Tool (CAT)

c. Objective:

Leadership Toolkit (ULT)  

d. Objective:

Develop a tailored
ACT(s) strategy

The intent of the ACT(S) Strategic Workshop is to develop a tailored strategy for organisations. The workshop will unpack CAT results, define the scope of ACT(S), teach the importance of storytelling, set leadership goals, and establish the HeroCODE Coaching Groups. It will also develop a Phase 2 learning plan and engagement strategy.

Solution:

Phase 2

Developing Knowledge & Capability

This phase focuses on executing the tailored capability development strategy formulated in Phase 1, which is divided into two streams: Management of OSH (Framework and Competence) and Leadership of OSH (Leadership at all levels and Development of Tactical Teams). The objective is to enhance capability across the four Codebreaker elements where deficiencies were identified.

g. Objective:

Framework &
Good Governance

From the information contained in the CAT and the Critical Risk Analysis Workshop, Fusion will determine the modifications required for the OSH Management system / structure if necessary.  

Phase 3

Developing an Integrated Safety Culture  

The broad objective of Phase 3 is to build on capability from Phase 2 to ensure the competencies learnt are reflected in workplace practice. The ultimate objective is active safety leadership at all levels in the organisation.  This is achieved through action learning and in-field coaching. During this phase, there is also a commitment to practicing safety management systems requirements and to refine and deploy technical training capability.

a. Objective:

Active Coaching of Tactical Teams

Coaches are equipped with the knowledge and skill to help teams form and respond as tactical teams. The do this by working through the teams Team Tactical Team Learning Journal – On the Job Learning, and applying the Action Learning Cycle. At the end of the Journal, the Coach assesses everyone’s ability within a team using the Team Capability Assessment.
