    In an insightful customer story video, Kody Crossen, Operations Manager EHS for Walmart Distribution Center (DC) in Pennsylvania, reveals the invaluable role of Behavior-Based Safety Observations (BBSO) in preventing safety incidents. Discover why Kody has found Weever, an innovative operations management software platform specializing in Food and CPG manufacturing, to be an indispensable tool for managing Walmart's BBSO program.

    Enhancing Safety Observations with Weever

    Seeking a comprehensive software solution for safety observation management, Kody turned to Weever. Dissatisfied with their existing system that merely checked off completed observations, Kody recognized the need for a platform that could offer intelligent insights to understand trends and proactively prevent incidents.

    “We wanted to put our foot forward at being proactive and looking at various trends in the multitude of different procedures we have going on 24/7.”

    Implementing Weever with Speed and Success

    Kody successfully introduced Weever's adaptable BBSO template to his operations team, which was swiftly embraced by supervisors. Through a few simple updates, the program quickly gained momentum. Walmart ingeniously employed QR codes to make BBSO forms easily accessible, leading to faster adoption rates.

    “We wanted everyone to buy into the ease of use, so another critical aspect was QR codes, which were placed on every single rack and the manager’s feedback was highly favorable.”

    Leveraging Real-Time Data for Strategic Decision-Making

    Weever empowers Kody to base his strategies and decisions on real-time data rather than relying on assumptions. The comprehensive reports allow him and his team to understand supervisor behavior and enhance engagement. Weever's insightful data breaks down at-risk issues by line, shift, area, and date, enabling Kody to determine the most effective proactive and preventive measures.

    “We are finding out that a certain area has an issue with “pinch gripping”, so we are setting up more observations in those work areas to stay ahead of it and inform associates that this type of lifting leads to injury.”

    Building a Positive Safety Culture with Weever

    Kody appreciates that Weever enables the recognition of associates who consistently demonstrate safe behaviors. Positive reinforcement plays a crucial role in fostering a robust safety culture. Furthermore, Kody believes Weever outshines other platforms by guiding supervisors through the process, ensuring successful outcomes.

    “It’s shifted our safety culture because now we are much more focused on what we should be looking at. And it also allows the associates to understand what we are looking for so it's not as arbitrary as it once was. It’s creating a lot more conversation and I think it's making the associates much more mindful of their actions.”
