It is essential to the success of a company’s safety and health program that top management demonstrate not only an interest, but a long term serious commitment to protect every employee from injury and illness that could result from their employment. When managers commit to safety and demonstrate their support, they will realize the positive benefits derived from their safety related effort. Their employees will be happier, therefore more efficient and productive, their properties protected, therefore there will be no downtime and their resources conserved, therefore resources will be utilized more efficiently.
Understanding and appreciating the above benefits will create a strong desire to improve the company’s safety standing that can propagate excellence. Managers have to invest serious resources into effective safety management in terms of policies, programs, written plans, processes and procedures aligned with safety principle. Leadership will be by examples and they will be able to prove that it is far more effective in making changes work as examples from people holding leadership posts can result to behavioural changes with positive results. This training will help executives and managers how to get to that level of commitment.
