What is a safety sandwich?
Three layers, containing all you need to know about leading safely from the top of your business triangle – this is your senior management team. Now look at the ‘filling’ – this is where your middle management come into their own with their day-to-day management responsibilities. You then need the all important base – your operatives working safely. The trick is to then turn the sandwich on it’s head. This allows for two-way feedback. Senior management usually drip feed their H&S strategy to the middle – this then feeds to the operatives. But turning your sandwich over allows the base layer to feed back to the middle management who can then ‘enlighten’ the senior team as to how things really are around here! In other words – your safety climate.
