Integrated Safety Management for Line Supervisors
Frontline supervisors can make or break an organization’s safety culture. Because they work closely with employees, line managers occupy a special position that allows them to observe, analyze, influence, and if needed, enforce employee behavior. As leaders, they help dictate the direction of an organization’s safety culture, ensuring that protocols are followed, safe behaviors are practiced, and incidents are investigated to develop preventive measures.
Developed by industry experts and practitioners using adult learning methodology, Integrated Safety Management for Line Supervisors is a safety workshop that equips frontline managers with the tools, mindset, and skills to develop, implement, and oversee their organization’s safety systems. It covers topics from conducting safety observations and incident analyses to integrating safety into work processes, pursuing corrective actions, and creating a positive, encouraging safety climate.
