The role of safety leaders is to support and enable teams and individuals to behave in a safe manner and reduce harm to the business. The mindset should be one of assisting people to understand and achieve, rather than tell.
To achieve effective safety leadership, leaders need to provide direction through communicating a clear safety vision and motivating, inspiring and enabling the right behaviours.
Active Safety Leadership is a key performance enabler and provides the energy and the spark by which safety management people, processes, procedures and tools deliver results. Safety Leadership is the effect of influencing people to be fully and willingly committed to a series of safe behaviours and values in order to meet commonly agreed safety vision and objectives. Without active safety leadership at all levels of your management organisation, your management systems will not effectively perform and you will not be able to capitalise on the investment you have made in developing them.
Strategic Safety Leadership consists of directing and focussing behaviours. It is required to help teams and individuals understand what safety values, standards and objectives they have been set and why.
Operational Safety Leadership consists of supporting and inspiring behaviours. It energises and motivates teams and individuals to perform their tasks, and supports them in finding ways to achieve them.
