  • Principles

    STOP® is based on tested principles that have been proven to help reduce incidents and injuries:

    • All injuries can be prevented.
    • Employee involvement is essential.
    • Management is responsible for preventing injuries.
    • All operating exposures can be safeguarded.
    • Training employees to work safely is essential.
    • Working safely is a condition of employment.
    • Management audits are a must.
    • All deficiencies must be corrected promptly.
    • Off-the-job safety will be emphasized.

  • Methods

    STOP® programs use a combination of methods to give people the information, skills and willingness to work more safely, to maximize their learning and to apply what they learn to the real world. The programs feature a three-part approach:

    • Individual self-study. Workbooks are used to introduce basic concepts and to begin safety skill development.
    • Field application activities. STOP program participants practice what they have learned in their own work areas.
    • Group meetings. After viewing a DVD, participants discuss what they have learned and consider how it can be applied.

Thousands of companies and government organizations worldwide have realized not only the human benefits of this program but also the impact in real dollars and cents.

STOP® programs are based on tested principles that have been proven to help reduce incidents and injuries. They use a combination of methods to give people the information, skills and willingness to work more safely, to maximize their learning and to apply what they learn to the real world.

Supporting products and services include STOP® Implementation Assistance Workshops, STOP® Implementation Resources, STOP® Assessment Service and STOP® DataPro.

STOP® For Supervision
A comprehensive, behavior-based safety program, STOP® For Supervision establishes the framework for the entire STOP® series. It teaches managers, supervisors and team leaders how to observe people as they work. By talking with people to acknowledge safe acts and correct unsafe acts, workers are encouraged to follow safe work practices.

STOP® For Each Other
STOP® For Each Other is based on the idea that safety is the responsibility of everyone equally. It helps participants look at safety in a new way, so they can help themselves and their co-workers work safely. The program encourages a mindset where safety is a discussion that takes place every day, not just when completing a formal observation.

STOP® For Oil and Gas
Both STOP® For Supervision and STOP® For Each Other are also available in oil and gas industry-specific versions.

STOP® For Ergonomics
Work-related stressors like repetitive motions, vibrations and poor posture have a negative impact on performance and productivity. To counteract this, STOP® For Ergonomics behavioral safety training was designed to raise awareness of ergonomic incidents and lost time injuries that occur around the workplace.

STOP® Implementation Assistance Workshops
STOP® Implementation Assistance Workshops were designed to train the trainer. By preparing leaders in your organization to implement the STOP® behavioral safety program, you can get the best return on your STOP® investment and you will help build a strong foundation for the STOP® rollout across your organization. The workshop is perfect for up to 20 participants, but you may also attend one of our scheduled open sessions.

STOP® Implementation Resources
STOP® Implementation Resources provide on-site STOP® experts to work with your facility, augmenting your on-site resources and bringing valuable knowledge and experience to STOP® meetings and field activities.

STOP® Assessment Service
The STOP® Assessment Service assesses how effective the STOP® program is in your workplace. We will send a DuPont STOP® expert to your organization to observe the implementation of the processes. A workshop will be conducted for your management leaders and supervisors on effective ways to improve all current observation and audit processes.

STOP DataPro®
Finally, STOP DataPro® is a secure, web-based application that makes it easy to record and analyze safety performance data and also generate reports. Insights derived from this application provide managers with knowledge that can be acted upon to improve behavioral safety training programs at your organization. Identifying trends and tracking corrective actions are all possible through STOP DataPro®.

Join the thousands of companies and government organizations worldwide that have not only reduced incidents but changed their safety culture with DuPont™ STOP®. See for yourself how DuPont helps to provide people with the safest workplace possible.

Building the Business Case for a Behavior-Based Safety Training Program

How do you sell a behavior-based safety program to management? Keep these few pointers in mind.

  1. Partner with someone in Accounting or Finance to build the financial case for implementing a behavioral safety program. Use the terminology of investment.
  2. Stress behavioral safety is an investment, not a cost. Show how the commitment of resources can earn the company financial returns or gain future benefits or advantages.
  3. To help with number two, get current/past cost data on workers’ compensation and follow the ROI guidelines of your organization. Project investment returns by using direct and indirect costs.
  4. Stress that behavioral safety helps contribute to fewer lost time incidents and workers’ compensation (WC) claims, lower WC premiums and admin costs, higher employee morale, a better reputation and more.
