The purpose of this course is to provide managers and safety professionals with a deeper understanding of their role in determining and implementing safety program outcomes. How to be a leader in safety is conducted in order to change the organization's mindset about its health and safety culture. It shows and focuses on the importance of top management involvement in guiding and motivating the process of implementing new approaches and the change management process which can be a challenge for some organizations who are seeking a significant improvement in health and safety performance. When routine and traditional risk reduction approaches do not produce the desired results, a new strategy should be put in place. Through many real life examples and interactive exercises, a step-by-step process is introduced to the participants to enable them to influence health and safety policies and procedures in their organizations. Moreover, participants will be ready to take a leadership role and promote good health and safety practices and to implement changes related to health and safety.
The workshop is designed to be interactive and participatory, including various pedagogical tools to enable the participants to function effectively and efficiently in a multilateral environment.
