Golden Rules for Safety - developing and implementing

Do any members have experience in developing and implementing Golden Rules for Safety?

As defined by "Those factors external to an individual’s task can be regarded as “Golden Rules”. Golden Rules, are often used in high hazard industries that either wish to sustain a high safety performance or aspire to achieving one. A Golden Rule is often the opposite action of the root cause of the incident the company wish to prevent. For example, the Golden Rule to prevent electrical shock is to follow isolation procedure".
