  • Operational staff
  • Frontline managers and directors


Your teams are working in high-risk situations where safety is a major concern, and which must be carefully managed. However, you observe numerous signals that lead you to think that you do not have a full understanding of how these situations are managed on a daily basis:

  • incidents or accidents are reported to you, and some of them are due to unacceptable deviations;
  • staff are reluctant to share their experience of what is happening in the field: you notice that there is a lack of trust when talking about situations they have experienced;
  • there is a sense of fatalism at all hierarchical levels.

You need to recreate space for actors to share their experience and work together to change their ways of thinking, talking and acting. What are the challenges? To develop collective solutions, and restore actors’ confidence that they can act at their own level to manage the most important risks.


Culture and practical workshops make it possible to identify, share, prioritise and address the concrete contribution each individual can make to risk prevention. Setting up a system of culture and practical workshops requires working together, allowing everyone to speak freely, and involving all members of the organisation in the search for solutions.

Icsi can support you at all stages of the project, especially key moments.

  • Project framework: formalise the problem, objectives and identify situations where the safety stakes are high, form groups with technicians and operators from all trades, inform all operational staff
  • Workshop organisation and animation:  encourage people to speak freely, make an inventory of at-risk situations, prioritise them express their concerns, negotiate, jointly develop and formalise ways to improve, validate and prepare proposals to present to the executive committee, bring together the executive committee and representatives of the working group to discuss all of the issues
  • After feedback from the group: the executive committee analyses and selects proposals, frontline managers and personnel representatives are involved in identifying and implementing concrete actions, staff are informed of any followup and implementation
  • Set up a sustainable system: The executive committee develops the shared vision and priorities to be addressed, momentum is maintained by training managers to lead regular discussion workshops, respond to alerts
