The intent for most organizations is to prevent accidents from happening. At minimum, organizations will introduce processes and procedures that comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Act. A further improvement is made through the Risk Management process, which identifies potential hazards present in the organization operations.
Despite improvements made and reduced risk of accidents, organizations continue to report safety incidents. Statistically it has been proven that most accidents are results of risk being taken by employees. This could be due to most employees not having embraced safety as an important aspect of day-to-day work.
The question is how do we get each employee to embrace safety in their day-to-day action? The answer is to make H&S as a core value of the organization.
One aspect of embracing H&S as a core value is for leaders and managers to become a role model in H&S. They should show leadership in safety driving the right safe behavior among employees. As a safety leader they should be engaging with their employees and consistently send messages about the importance of working safely.
This two days’ workshop is designed to equip the leaders and managers with key attributes of a Safety Leader.
The aim of this workshop is to share attributes and behaviors of a safety leader.
