Leadership Practices For A Sustainable Safety Culture

The knowledge and skills leaders need for positive, proactive safety management.

Creating a safe workplace begins with good leadership and with leaders who employ practices that are based on scientifically sound principles. With a scientific understanding of behavior, leaders can effectively use positive reinforcement to generate higher rates of safe behavior and create the engagement and trust necessary to sustain a truly safe work environment.

ADI’s 2-day Safety Leadership Training is founded on the science of behavior and is designed for anyone responsible for the safety of others. This working session provides leaders with tips and tools for developing coaching skills that build engagement and improve performance, a process for building positive accountability, and a method for productive problem-solving. Participants of this 2-day working session will come to understand how to improve their own safety leadership behaviors and how to develop and sustain critical safe behaviors in others.

Training is delivered at your location for groups of 12-22.

What You Will Learn

  • A Business Case for the Science of Behavior: An introduction to the science of behavior and how to use its tools and principles to increase safe behavior, and reduce at-risk behavior at all levels of the organization.
  • Safety Leadership Coaching Skills: Tips and tools for developing coaching skills that build engagement and improve performance, including practice in the delivery of positive and constructive feedback around safety behaviors and the importance of shifting the balance of consequences to increase the use of positive reinforcement.
  • How to Create Positive Accountability: A process for building positive accountability to support and sustain effective safety leadership throughout the organization.
  • A Method of Productive Problem Solving: Use of the PIC/NIC Analysis® to identify the behavioral root causes of incidents, which helps avoid the “blame game” and focuses attention on effectively preventing future incidents.
  • Ways to Build Trusting Relationships: An understanding of why relationships matter in safety, and how to avoid behaviors that erode trust and develop behaviors that build trust and good working relationships.

The science of behavior offers the most effective, long-term approach for helping leaders do the right things around safety. Leaders who understand and apply the science know how to build effective safety leadership strategies, and how to evaluate safety programs and practices to guide their organizations to safety solutions that lead to maximum impact.

Safety Leadership Training is not a trainer certification course. Training and safety consulting firms, independent safety consultants, and other behavioral consulting service providers may not attend.
