Visible felt leadership forms one of the core of the AMAN PSM program. As visible felt leadership starts at the top and flows down to floor level, the executives and managers at QAFAC have shown a visible commitment by being involved in walkthroughs, audits and practicing the BBS program on a regular basis. The senior management is also involved in monthly reviews and statistics related to incident investigations, HSSE observations and other KPI’s. This is because the senior management at QAFAC believes safety is as important as all the other parameters such as productivity, quality and cost. This commitment has not only been reflected by their words but also in their actions on a constant basis. The top management has constantly shown a strong passion to achieve zero injuries, illnesses and accidents.
