Supervisor Leadership Skills for a Safe Workplace
Supervisors are the linchpins in an organisation that set the performance levels when it comes to safety, productivity, skills development and job satisfaction.
This world class course teaches supervisors the importance of their job role and that what they demonstrate and request from staff determines safety levels. It provides supervisors with information about what makes a high performance safety culture, followed by 9 "Connect & Collaborate" Skills to improve employee safety engagement.
The course goes through how to use these skills in toolbox meetings and includes a Toolbox Meeting Template to help supervisors encourage better safety meeting performance.
This is not a compliance based course, but instead, training on how to encourage staff and supervisors to perform safely in their jobs.
