    31: Five Reasons Why Your Directive Documentation Might Not Be Working

    In today’s episode of Transmit Safety, Aimee dives deep into a common workplace challenge - why people sometimes don't follow policies and procedures.

    It doesn't matter the size of the organization, the organization has to ensure the health and safety of the employees. Now, when we think about that compliance standpoint, oftentimes policies and procedures are only followed when someone from corporate or an auditor is there.

    Can you relate to spending hours crafting what you think is the perfect set of directive documentation, you have a fantastic procedure, only to find out through observations or feedback that people aren't following them. It can be frustrating. But fear not, I've got five reasons why your directive documentation might not be working and how to improve them.

    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    Using clear and concise language to convey your message in documentationInvolve employees in the creation and review of documentationTraining is essential for ensuring that documentation is followedEnsure your documentation is regularly updatedThere needs to be accountability for not following policies and procedures

    Quotes from this episode

    “Clear communication isn't just about the words, isn't just about what people are saying. It's what they're not saying when it comes to communicating your policies, your practices, your procedures, your standards”

    “It's not enough to have a great document. You also need to ensure that people understand how to follow it. If you just assume that they're going to figure it out on their own. You're definitely setting yourself up for disappointment.”

    “If there's no consequences for not following a policy or procedure, then why would people take them seriously? They may feel that they're there, but there's no repercussions. And if there's no repercussions, then why would they follow them?”

    “Disciplinary action shouldn't be punitive. When done correctly, disciplinary action is a learning opportunity.“

    29: The Vagus Nervous System and Its Connection to Health and Well-Being

    29: The Vagus Nervous System and Its Connection to Health and Well-Being

    In today’s episode of Transmit Safety, we're going to be diving into the fascinating world of the vagus nervous system and its connection to overall health and well-being.

    For a few years now, I've been dealing with some health issues. Nothing alarming, but daily life-impacting. Regular doctors kept on telling me that I was fine. I would go for tests and the results would say that I was fine. There's nothing wrong with me. But I knew something wasn't right. So I kept on searching for an answer.

    This summer I landed in a virtual workshop about gut health, and one of the sessions was on the vagus nerve. I knew that we had it, but it didn't really click for me until I was sitting in this session with a subject matter expert about how important understanding the vagus nervous system really is. And I want to share that with you.

    Stick around until the end because I have a relaxing guided breathing practice for you to try to help you integrate this knowledge into your daily routine.

    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    What the vagus nervous system isThe vagus nerve’s role in your body’s stress responseHow to tap into the power of the vagus nervous systemThe benefits of a breathing practice

    27: Three Things That Frustrate Me as a Health and Safety Professional

    27: Three Things That Frustrate Me as a Health and Safety Professional

    In today’s episode of Transmit Safety, I talk about 3 things that frustrate me as a health and safety professional.

    I have been really struggling to record this podcast episode. I initially wanted to talk about the 10 things that I hate about being a health and safety professional. But every time I turn the mic on, every time I’ve hit record for the last five days I circle back to something that's been very much a hot topic in the news.

    And I don't even want to talk about the topic that has been in the news but what I will say is that it has led to me feeling a lot of frustration.

    Whenever I'm frustrated about something, I take a moment and ask myself, “Why am I frustrated about this particular response?” And I'm starting to do some more self-reflection on that process.

    So, in today's episode, I wanted to share some of the frustrations that I have as a health and safety professional.

    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    The value of safety is not being put into actionFrustration as a trigger to try and understand where other people are coming fromExpecting to be an expert in way too many things as a health and safety professional but not having the resources to support that professional developmentThe lack of an internal support network as a health and safety professional
