Supervisors will tell you safety is important, but many struggle to see how their specific actions and conversations detract from the goal of safety. The best supervisors demonstrate through their own behavior that safety is non-negotiable, then empower their teams for personal accountability. This workshop presenter uses an engaging storyline to demonstrate how and why safety accountability works, how a positive safety culture impacts the bottom line and what supervisors can do to make a difference.
