IMCA Publishes Pocket Safety Cards

press release
Friday, April 20, 2012
Hugh Williams, IMCA’s Chief Executive.

‘Safety Coaching’ and ‘Workplace Fatigue’ are the two latest pocket safety cards in the series published by the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA).


“These are card numbers 20 and 21 in the popular and effective series,” explains Hugh Williams, IMCA’s Chief Executive. “The safety coaching card includes a list of key aspects of the role of a coach, encouraging people to stop and think and provide objective and honest feedback. As we say on the card ‘you don’t need to have ‘Coach’ in your job title to undertake coaching – particularly when it comes to safety. Coaching, like any other skill, is something that everyone can learn. Some may be better at it than others.’ We go on to list nine key aspects of the role, and then on the other side provide some DOs and DON’Ts to help those set on a coaching path.
 

“Recognising and preventing fatigue is important in the quest for safe operations. Our 21st safety card not only helps users identify the symptoms of workplace fatigue in themselves, and others, but on the other side of the card it lists, in two columns,  personal responsibilities and supervisor’s or manager’s responsibilities in preventing workplace fatigue.”


Both cards are available for free download by members in PDF and InDesign formats from the IMCA members-only website, and include room for members to include their own corporate identity as required. The printed versions can also be purchased from IMCA as sets of 100 – these cost £25 for members and £50 for non-members, and are eligible for VAT.  Sets of cards can be ordered online, or from publications@imca-int.com.
