DSS STOP®

Improving Behavior through Observation and Communication

Strengthen Your Safety Culture with STOP®

Understanding why employees want to stay safe is the key to changing behavior.

STOP® has helped thousands of organizations empower employees and enrich culture through safety observations based on honest, thoughtful dialogue. Employees will learn to see safety by observing others as they do their jobs.

But just observing people isn’t enough.

The true benefit of STOP® is in the conversation and in the power of why. By engaging in positive, meaningful discussions, employees are encouraged to learn why their colleagues want to be safe. Knowing what motivates each other to go home safely each day leads to more impactful conversations that reach the hearts and minds – and, ultimately, improve behavior when it comes to risk.

See for yourself how DSS helps to provide people with the safest workplace possible.

The Three-Part Approach

STOP® programs use proven instructional design in a combination of tested training 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.
It was a mixture of ‘wow, it does work’ and a heightened awareness of safety. When you actually have proof that incidents are down, and expenditures, people take it seriously. And they begin to think that maybe they should look into this too.
