A manager has employees that report to him or her, but not all managers have good leadership skills. Leadership can be defined as the ability to compel and motivate others towards the leader’s goals; a leader has followers and not simply reports. In safety, this translates into leaders that go beyond simply defining and implementing safety and health policies and procedures.
Through lectures, presentations and real-world simulations, students will cover topics including
- Alignment of values within an organization around safety
- Exhibiting visible leadership each day
- Identifying an organizations safety strengths and weaknesses and leading improvements
- Constructive intervention skills
- Fostering two-way dialogue between employees and leadership
- Setting and maintaining safety expectations
By the end of the course, safety professionals will have the skill sets necessary to transform into safety leaders.
