As Group Risk Management Consultant for Billiton (plc) in South Africa from 1982-1990 he developed a behavioural change process called the Safety Performance Review, which was instrumental in the dramatic improvements in safety performance of this large company during the 1980’s. The successes of this process led to the establishment of SAFEmap in South Africa and Australia in 1992.
Pitzer has been affiliated with both FIOSA-MIOSA and the BC Safety Charter for several years. He is a signatory to the Charter and has spoken at several conferences and roundtable events put on the both organizations.
One of Pitzer’s areas of special interest is safety culture. Safety Culture. He has developed a model and methodology called e-Profile to measure and study safety culture in an organization.
The model was developed over a period of 20-years in Australia and recently became the benchmark in the Australian resources industry. The Australian Minerals Council selected this technology to be used in a comprehensive survey of the safety culture in the resources industry in 1998. All the major resources organizations participated, including BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Anglocoal, Xstrata, WMC, CSR.
