Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) is the final TPM pillar and implements a methodology to drive towards the achievement of zero accidents. It is important to note that this is not just safety related but covers zero accidents, zero overburden (physical and mental stress and strain on employees) and zero pollution.
Although the SHE pillar is the eighth pillar of TPM, it should not be thought of as the last to be deployed. The implementation of SHE strategies occurs throughout the TPM deployment process and SHE activities are never complete.
SHE pillar activities aim to reactively eliminate the root causes of incidents that have occurred, to preventreoccurrence, and proactively reduce the risk of future potential incidents by targeting near misses and potential hazards. The pillar team target three key areas: people’s behaviours, machine conditions and the management system. All SHE pillar activities should be aligned to relevant external quality standards and certifications.
The immediate benefits of implementing the SHE pillar are to prevent reoccurrence of lost time accidents and reduce the number of minor accidents as well as preventing environmental system failure. This has a direct financial saving in the cost of containment, investigation and compensation as well as reputational impact.
