How does leadership behavior impact organizational safety and well-being? What you know might be different from what you should do as a safety leader. Safety leadership is not about signs and regulation to hold workers accountable; it is about creating a work environment that is built on respect, care, and interaction. Listen to the story of how and why you should develop and lead a respectful workplace
Do we command attention by giving orders and speaking in a loud voice? That may be the standard approach in the past but we emphasize the opposite approach. Introduce yourself, be vulnerable, and take a few minutes to build a relationship first. Let people warm up to you as a leader. Instead of barking orders, ask for input first. These methods will yield dividends of safety breakthroughs and active engagement of your workers.
