Safety Leadership in the Ever Changing Work Environment


One thing we have all learned in the past year is how quickly our personal and work environments can change. In the work world these periods of change, whether caused by external or internal factors, are times when safety professionals have to show leadership by guiding their employees to handle the changes in a safe manner. These times of uncertainty are stressful for all but give everyone in safety an opportunity to show how strong safety leadership can make real difference in companies and in the lives of employees.

This session will cover:

  • The process of hazard recognition in all conditions and in both simple and complex enironments.
  • How to utilize safety committees to make significant contributions in times of change and workplace transitions.

Attend this class and learn how you can become a better safety leader and safety mentor to others in your company.

NOTE: This session is a part of the Safety and Health Council of North Carolina's Pertinent Issues Program and is provided at no charge.
