Leadership Dynamics HSE – 08-19
Safety Visible felt Leadership

This course enables management to understand the role they play towards cultivating a safety culture in the workplace.

The role of leadership cannot be overemphasized in the success of a behavior-based safety process. Supervisors and managers should generally conduct observations as part of a behavioral safety process. Safety leadership is vital, whether it is from formal or informal leaders throughout an organization. Formal leadership includes supervisors and managers. Informal leaders are employees who take a special interest in safety; they are often union leaders and other employees who are well-respected by coworkers. Both types of leaders share important responsibilities for supporting safety. To maximize the success of behavioral safety improvement efforts, leadership responsibilities must be defined for both formal and informal leaders.

Course Description

Reviews the role of managerial leadership in determining organisational safety outcomes. Identifies three different levels of management with special responsibilities for health and safety: senior (or corporate) level managers; middle level managers (including site managers) and supervisors (also known as front line managers or team leaders).

Clarifies distinctions between the levels, explores the unique contribution of each level, and examines the paths of influence between them. A holistic model of the leadership factors at each level was developed, to show how they interact to influence safety
