Organizational Leadership ME Motivation Motivation is one of the hardest thing for a project manager Manager has to first motivate themselves before they can do others First step in the process of motivation is understanding Manager has to have a clear understanding of the expectations of the job and the mission Lots of times motivation means changing the course time for an adjustment Organizational Leadership Leadership is often confused with supervision Leaders are not always supervisors Leadership qualities are Honesty Trustworthiness Dependability Reliability Communication is one of the most important components of leadership Ryan Corcoran The program piece The Program Piece Successful Project management requires three characteristics of a project manager Communication skills if one cannot communicate effectively with his or her employees then tasks will not be completed in a quality fashion Motivation A project manager must themselves be motivated if the wish to be able to motivate their employees Leadership Employees need structure in the workplace lack of leadership will result in poor performance in the workplace The Program Piece Managing the Program is essential because without a program to follow employees will be unsure of their specific tasks The Program Piece The project manager should do their part in keeping the employees in the loop about company operations Having a master list of objectives is the best way to circulate the specific commitments to all of the employees The master list can also be used by the client to check the status of the commitments as laid out in the contract Commitments are not always under contract or in a memorandum they can simply be actions or promises to improve work processes or even to improve the performance of the employed security officers themselves The Program Piececont Once commitments are identified they need to be implemented resources must be put into place to complete assigned tasks Examples of these resources include Increasing staff by hiring employees Providing additional training for current personnel Cross training current personnel as to expand individual responsibilities Cross training when done correctly can improve the worth of both employees and the company by expanding individual skills and capabilities of personnel Christopher Woodall The system piece and

Theories of Causation Unit VI2 Page 253 Why accidents happen Accidents occur everyday In 2005 there were 42 million onthe job nonfatal injuries There are nearly 6000 onthejob fatalities each year There are potentially millions or billions of accidents that go unreported Why accidents happen For every serious injury there were 29 minor injuries and 300 accidents resulting in close calls Accidents are unavoidable lts impossible to prevent all accidents but it is possible to decrease the rate of their occurrence Heinrich s Domino Theory Heinrich s Domino Theory o Explains accidents by using the analogy of domino s falling over one another and creating a chain of events If one domino is removed the whole process ceases Heinrich s Domino Theory Five stages of accident causation Social environment Faults of a person Unsafe act or condition Accident itself Injury Heinrich s Domino Theory Social environment o Anything that made lead to producing undesirable traits in people this may include the nature and nurture of someone s background Heinrich s Domino Theory Faults of a person 0 Refers to the personal characteristics that are conducive such as a bad temper Heinrich s Domino Theory Unsafe act or condition Its often the beginning of a specific incident It is closer to the accident in terms of temporal proximity Heinrich s Domino Theory Accident itself 0 When something occurs that is undesirable and not intended Heinrich s Domino Theory Injury 0 The unfortunate outcome of some accidents Ferrell s Human Factor Model Ferrell s Human Factor Model Multiple Specific causes 0 Incompatibility 0 Improper Activities Overload Emotional state capacity load Pete s AccidentIncident Mode Peterson s AccidentIncident Model 0 Expansion of Ferrell39s Human Factor Model Ergonomic Traps Decision to and reasons to choose to err Morality System Failure Management Training Policy The Epidemiological Approach The Epidemiological Approach Different from the theories thus far Relies on collecting additional info to expand our knowledge The Epidemiological Approach Can be observed in the Insurance Company example On the other hand Systems Models Systems Models Focuses on a harmony between man machine and environment Referred to as Risk Taking Driving to work Benefits outweigh the risks Systems Models Similar to Rational Choice perspective Choice is made if the potential benefits outweigh the potential loss Ford example Systems Models Firenze suggests considering five calculated risks and benefits Job requirements The capabilities and limitations of the worker in relation to theirjob o The potential gain upon succeeding 0 The potential consequences upon failure 0 The potential loss of not attempting the task Systems Models In other words a common task previously taken has wellknown risks and benefits while a new task often has more unknown factors The Integration of Theories and General Program implications Integration Theories for accidents do not explain accidents Theories explain what can cause the accident to happen Theories only explain a portion of accidents therefore all theories are incomplete Integration Most theories and models suggest human error as a possible cause of accidents Avoid hiring accidentprone or thoughtless staff Dismiss those who show carelessness in the workplace Integration Socialization and subculture are causes for accidents Have regular training and safety programs A poor employee is always a high risk for causing an accident and can corrupt future staff making the problem grow Safety awareness programs can help with these problems Integration Keep your employees motivated Twofactor theory of motivation aka the MotivatorHygiene Theory 0 Employees should be exposed to motivators positive rewards 390 Hygiene Factors routine parts of a job such as a good working environment Management should understand importance of maintaining a positive subculture and be trained to deal with problem employees Integration Physical environment can also play a role in the cause of accidents Obvious implications 0 Guard rails safety warnings hard hats etc o Ergonomic machine designs Can increase productivity 0 Increase workers comfort 9 Decreases workers stress and boredom 0 Resulting in less human error Integration Think outside the box Offer incentives and rewards to workers who are safetyoriented attention grabber Make sure the program is effective Potential indicators of program effectiveness 0 Statistical analyses of accident rates Surveys of individuals perception of safety 0 Inspections by safety specialists If it isn t working find out how you can fix it If it is working ask the same Adapting Accident Causation to Specific Environments Adapting Accident Causation to
