Special Session: Leadership and Culture: What do leaders need to know, and do, to improve Safety Culture?

Tuesday, 24 September
Exhibit Hall B2-1
Special Session
Leadership has a critical role in ensuring that a desired culture of safety exists within an organization. Good leaders engage their employees in a way that builds trust and yields desired discretionary effort around safety. Research has also shown that companies with an engaged workforce perform better in safety, quality, and financially versus their peers with less engaged workers. What soft and hard skills are required to be a better leader in safety? What considerations need to be made relative to human performance and risk management? How do you effectively train leaders so that they retain, and take action on the information they have been given? And how do we understand when a leader isn’t fostering an environment of trust and the desired culture of safety? The panelists for this session will look at desired leader attributes and effective training to help achieve improved engagement and a proactive safety culture.
