Integrated Safety Management for Operations Managers
A significant part of an organization’s safety culture takes root, flourishes, and is sustained in and by operations where routine processes take place. Safety is a company-wide effort, but the task of ensuring the safety of these protocols, and the employees who run them, falls largely on the shoulders of operations managers. As supervisors, operations managers have frequent and direct contact with employees, and have huge influence to affect behavior, monitor safety compliance, and dictate the tenor of a safety culture.
Preparing managers for this vital task is the objective of Integrated Safety Management for Operations Managers, a workshop that helps them acquire, develop, and apply the tools, mindset, and skills to develop, implement, and oversee safety protocols in their organizations. The workshop includes ten modules that cover topics such as safety culture and leadership, incident investigation, employee commitment to safety, and integration of safety into routine processes, all geared to reduce incidents and injuries, minimize damage or losses, and increase employee participation in safety.
Developed by industry experts and practitioners using adult learning methodology, Integrated Safety Management for Operation Managers helps participants:
- Understand and apply the principles of safety leadership in communicating and nurturing value for safety in a Safety Management System
- Identify and implement safety observations to recognize and help prevent incidents and enhance safety culture
