The Safety & Health Improvement Program (SHIP) toolkit is an evidence-based workplace training program or intervention for supervisors and their work teams. The training title consists of 98 screens designed to promote employee health, safety, work-life balance, and team effectiveness. This 1-pager provides an overview of the materials and training in the toolkit.
The SHIP toolkit is composed of:
- This one-hour computer-based training title for supervisors*
- A User Guide to implement the intervention
- An Implementation checklist
- A behavior-tracking period meant to reinforce the training principles (cards included in User Guide)
- Team-based planning and problem-solving that utilizes a modified version of WFD Consulting’s Team Effectiveness Process (TEP) (description and options included in User Guide)
- Follow-up sessions (described in User Guide)
* The cost below is for the training title; all other items in the toolkit are available at no cost at YourWorkpath.com.
Evidence base: In a randomized trial, this toolkit improved blood pressure in the group and increased positive opinions about supervisors in supervisors who began the study with poor relationships with their employees. A peer-reviewed publication describes this intervention and it’s results.
