Safety Starts Here is the name of our safety culture initiative. Our leadership is fully committed to safety and we know that your safety starts with each one of us.
At the end of Wake Forest Baptist’s safety and high-reliability training course, all employees personally commit to make safety and high reliability their priority.
As a result of our safety initiatives, we have:
- Increased our reporting of safety issues. We are changing things we never knew were problems and turning potential errors into learning opportunities.
- Launched the Daily Safety Check-In to improve identification of events, immediate concerns and anticipated needs. Many issues are now resolved within 24 hours.
- Focused rounding efforts to influence desired behaviors, identify and remove barriers to success, and secure ongoing commitment.
- Decreased adverse events.
We are safer than we have ever been.
We will be safer tomorrow than we are today.
