Whole-Person Safety® is a proprietary methodology developed by Dr. Marvin Thompson and Audrey Hlembizky from TeamsynerG Global Consulting, through 75 years of multi-industry experience in leadership and policy development, behaviour economics, culture engineering, organizational change, business improvement and workplace psychology. 

A data-driven and research-based model and approach to creating a paradigm shift in leadership behaviours at every level of the organization to engineer inclusive cultures and workplace environments of safety, inclusion, dignity and respect.

Whole-Person Safety® is a comprehensive framework that integrates both psychological and occupational safety. Psychological safety refers to the emotional aspects of safety, where employees feel secure, respected, and free to express themselves without fear of negative consequences. Occupational safety, on the other hand, pertains to the physical aspects of safety, ensuring that employees are protected from harm, health risks and have all their physiological needs provided within their built environments. 

Whole-Person Safety® is a progressive approach that recognizes the intricate connection between an employee’s psychological and occupational safety is not just an ethical decision but a strategic one, leading to a healthier, more engaged workforce, lower operational risks, enhanced reputation, and ultimately, greater profitability. This approach to safety is an investment in the company’s most valuable resource – its people – and is critical for the sustainable success of any mining organization.

MEASURING The 6 Critical Human Safety Zones®

Built Environment Safety

The spaces where we work significantly impact our mental state. A mindfully and inclusively designed, safe, and comfortable physical environment not only prevents physical harm but also promotes mental clarity and reduces stress optimizing employee performance.

Knowledge Equity Safety

Access to information and opportunities for growth is not just a matter of fairness; it’s about ensuring that every individual feels valued and empowered. Closing the gap in generational knowledge transfer, creating equitable knowledge and fostering a sense of belonging and confidence, which is crucial for psychological well-being, succession planning and innovation.

Well-Being Safety

The holistic health of employees is at the core of employee engagement. Physical health initiatives are deeply intertwined with mental and emotional support systems. An individual who feels cared for in all aspects of their well-being is more engaged, resilient, and productive

Behaviour Safety

Safe behaviours in the workplace are not just about following rules; they’re about creating an environment where individuals feel secure enough to voice concerns, report incidents and trust that their safety is a priority. This sense of security is foundational for psychological safety and risk mitigation and holds leadership accountable for following through with grievances that result in reconciliation and positive resolutions

Workplace Safety

Onboarding, safety training, continuous improvement based on data and the provision of uniforms and PPE, this is not just about physical protection; it’s a tangible demonstration that the organization values the individual’s safety. This care for physical well-being, awareness, self-reflection and transparency reinforces an individual’s sense of being valued and supported and leads to each employee being a leader and ambassador for a  safety culture

Inclusion Safety

Is about creating a space where every individual feels they can show up as their authentic selves without fear. This sense of acceptance is critical allowing individuals to contribute fully and creatively. Workplace fears kills a culture and inclusion safety has multiple levels of consideration in how an employee experiences themselves and others with all stakeholders within an organization, when we experience belonging, we develop trust and that trust creates humans to excel, especially in the face of challenges, fostering a culture of agility and accountability
