Productive and profitable businesses encourage a culture that takes health and safety seriously and minimises risk. Traction is a tool that can help you benchmark your health and safety culture by knowing what your people are thinking and doing
How does it work?
Traction is run by our partner Success Formula. It’s a simple online assessment that is anonymously completed by both employees and employers. It looks at 15 key principles, practices, and behaviours related to safety and risk and, once completed, your results are interpreted and business risks are identified. From there, we work with you to help you minimise those risks with customised resources and programmes.
What are the benefits?
- Encourage a culture that takes health and safety seriously and minimises risk
- Introduce change with reports, including industry benchmarking, recommendations and technical and strategic support

Our Case Study
Traction case study
“Our fleet of 55 heavy motor vehicles includes flat decks, curtainsiders and tankers as we do a lot of work in the dairy, wine and energy sectors. We’ve got between 50 to 120 staff depending on the time of the year, servicing from Auckland to Canterbury.
We first completed Traction two years ago, and in that short time we’ve already seen improvements in areas that were highlighted initially. This included some quick wins that have had a positive result, and staff feel good knowing their feedback is heard and improvements are implemented.
Communication has been the biggest area of improvement that we received through feedback in Traction. Now we record notes in daily dispatch meetings and ensure this information is getting out to our driver teams.
We are also looking into new roster technology as a result of staff feedback. It’s difficult as sometimes we don’t see some drivers for weeks on end face to face, so we’re really reliant on dispatch to keep the communication channels open. Putting more emphasis on keeping our entire company up to date with crucial information has really improved morale.”By Jane Symons - HSEQ Manager
