The Supervisor's Role In Safety: How To Prevent Incidents By Supporting Day-To-Day Management

Webinar: ID# 1001755
About This Course:
Your front-line supervisors must be fully committed to ensuring a safe work environment and be properly informed on how to actually achieve this to prevent incidents and injuries. This equally applies for success in quality, efficiency, and production. The supervisor is the critical lynch pin.

OSHA is currently exercising more vigorous prosecutions of companies and supervisors for willful and serious violations of OSHA regulations. Thus, a supervisor's role is especially critical to build the foundation for successful day-to-day accident free safety performance.

To ensure success, it's important to focus on ensuring that:
  1. Supervisors have a clear understanding of their safety responsibilities
  2. You're aware of the most important safety leadership and motivation tools and techniques to engage an increasingly diverse workforce
  3. You've got the resources and management support needed for your pursuits, as well as recommended training courses or modules to achieve superior safety performance
Join us for an in-depth webinar to learn how to make these things happen! Our presenter, a seasoned industrial and construction safety professional, is dedicated to helping companies evaluate and significantly improve their strategies for providing supervisors with the tools and techniques to successfully "supervise for safety."
