Leading With Safety: The Path to Excellence
As the business climate continues to change, it is critical to think beyond traditional safety management paradigms that limit safety to a discreet function of one department with one target area. Rather, we need to recognize that successful safety initiatives depend largely upon effective leadership. While the importance of leadership is recognized in a conceptual way, many leaders do not really know what is required of them. This presentation puts forward a basic understanding of the behavioral-based concepts, examples, and results from a variety of industries, as well as critical success factors for initiating any safety-change initiative. The concepts outlined reach beyond safety, and are applicable to all critical business outcomes.
