Creating a Safety Culture that Leads to Zero Fatalities
While health and safety (H&S) is often measured by incident rates and reactionary measures, at the end of the day, safety is about the people. It’s about creating relationships and building trust amongst the workforce. Front line supervisors and health and safety professionals are the core of safe production and have the best opportunity to influence those doing the work. Developing our frontline supervisors and H&S professionals and arming them with the tools to work with the employees in the field creates a culture of trust, respect and collaboration. In this presentation we will review an approach to elevate the role of the front line supervisor and H&S professionals, and develop tools to keep them in the field and focused on the critical work of driving positive culture change.
