The Workforce Engagement Support Team exists to ensure leaders demonstrate effective safety leadership, and encourage the industry's workforce to be engaged with safety matters. There are three key work streams within WEST:
The Sustainability workgroup supports members who are using the Workforce Engagement Survey within their organisation. Throughout 2015, the workgroup will be improving the appearance and structure of the survey, so that users can determine the most effective way to use the survey in their organisation.
The Elected Safety Rep (ESR) workgroup is looking at ways to improve the industry's engagement with the ESR community, and how communication methods between ESRs could be improved. If you are an ESR and would like to know more about how Step Change can support you, please visit the dedicated ESR page.
WEST is responsible for the production of Tea Shack News, a quarterly newspaper for the industry's workforce. You can read more about Tea Shack News on the TSN webpage.
Please email WEST if you would like more information about the group.
WEST is chaired by Victoria Lamont (Shell) and Bob Egan (HSE),
