The Safety Leader Podcast

The Safety Leader Podcast introduces the next level in safety. A safety leader takes safety beyond rules compliance to a shared goal that recognizes the importance of each individual on the job. Supervisors and safety people are uniquely positioned to become safety leaders and to bring workplace safety past compliance and across the threshold to where safety becomes personal. The front line is where the culture of an organization is made and reinforced. Past all the processes and procedures are people. Safety starts with people. I commit to you to give you my best ideas, tips and strategies to help make your job as a supervisor or front-line safety person easier and more effective. That's what the Safety Leader Podcast is all about.

Effectiveness in safety is about how little effort it takes to inspire people to do the right things. On this episode, 3 key tips to help you become a more effective safety leader.

As a safety person, manager or front-line supervisor, you already know that your work can be thankless. But you still have a responsibility to drive down the best practices and advice onto those employees at the front-line.

Just because you may have the position or title doesn’t mean that you’re effective at what you do. Being effective is not about being armed with a set of clever quips to trot out, or an ability to use guilt or threat of harm to make your point.

Let’s assume that you already have a working safety program in place and that yours is a workplace that hires good people to do good work; work that has earned you a decent reputation of quality performance.

Here are the top 3 strategies to help you, as a supervisor, manager or safety person, become more effective in safety.
