OODA stands for Observe, Orient, Decide and Act. The OODA Loop was developed during the mid-20th century by U.S. Air Force Colonel and military strategist John Boyd to teach soldiers how to make critical decisions when there may not be time to gather all available information.
Infusing this framework into toolbox talks and training will help to promote safe behaviors and support a strong organizational safety culture by teaching workers skills they can easily commit to memory and utilize on every jobsite.
MindForge incorporates the OODA Loop framework into its Construction LifeSaver (CLS) training, which aims to provide the workforce with practical knowledge to help them observe and mitigate hazards on the job. The training takes into account how the brain works so it can be used as a weapon against jobsite hazards. MindForge’s CLS training also provides critical safety knowledge and skills to continuously feed the OODA Loop and prepare the workforce to identify and mitigate the many dangers that exist in the construction industry.
Incorporating the OODA Loop framework on construction sites provides the workforce with four practical steps to autonomously identify and remove job site hazards before they become dangerous.
To learn more about how to use the OODA Loop framework to empower your workforce with the knowledge, information and skills needed to stay safe on the jobsite, check out our OODA Loop webinar here.
Due to COVID-19, traditional in-person workforces have had to navigate new obstacles. These fluid workforces are facing the challenges of rapidly reducing headcounts on the job site, managers working from home and implementation of new safety training all at the same time. Further, social distancing guidelines have rendered conventional in-person orientation and briefings to be unsafe, something many of these industries has previously relied on.
With the MindForge platform, you’ll connect the home office with the front line and build a culture of safety and quality, reducing the number of workers comp claims and saving you money.
