BOOM stands for Behavioral Observation and Onsite Management Program. The main objectives of the BOOM program are to learn how to practice safety awareness and recognize and eliminate at-risk behaviors, which are the major cause of workplace injuries.
The program consists of self-study workbooks, group discussion meetings and on-the-job field activities. These components are designed to introduce, teach and reinforce the basic BOOM safety concepts.
These concepts are based on the following safety principles:
The target audience for BOOM is all employees, regardless of their background in safety, their job titles, or their positions within the organization. Because BOOM builds safety awareness among employees and into every employee’s job, it can be applied in virtually any work environment.
Through the Focus 12 initiative, Associated Terminals reminds all of our team of the importance of their personal safety while performing any task. It is with this focus that greater milestones can be achieved. This focus and commitment to safety and overall performance is not only restricted to the 12 hours at work, but also to decisions made while off the job site.
As part of this commitment, each team member has pledged:
THE OTHER 12
Employee safety does not end once the workday is over. Through the Other 12 campaign, Associated reminds employees of the importance of incorporating personal safety when not at work. Utilizing reminders related to key times of the year such as the beginning of school, hunting season and holiday periods, Associated provides reminders of personal safety topics throughout the year while also focusing on human interest stories related to our team members and their families.
See Something. Do Something. is a safety campaign that raises awareness of the unsafe behaviors and conditions that lead to incidents and stresses the importance of reacting to those unsafe behaviors and conditions.
Informed, alert employees play a critical role in keeping every crew member safe. Associated Terminals is committed to strengthening the safety culture by continuously promoting opportunities to not only speak up but to do something to address unsafe behaviors and conditions. “See Something. Do Something” expands on the philosophies of Focus 12, Stop Work Authority and the BOOM program. Together, these programs empower the employee to react when unsafe behaviors and conditions are observed.
