Supervisor Leadership Skills for a Safe Workplace


Anyone with supervisory responsibilities in the workplace who already has awareness of their legal rights, duties and responsibilities and who is looking to strengthen supervisory competency.


Supervisors are the linchpins in an organisation that set the performance levels when it comes to safety, productivity, skills development and job satisfaction. This training has been devised for companies who have got a great or “getting great” safety culture in place, but they realise employees are getting complacent with safety and that they need to re-energise and empower staff.This course teaches supervisors the importance of their job role and that what they demonstrate and request from staff determines safety levels.  It provides supervisors with information about what makes a high performance safety culture, followed by 9 “Connect & Collaborate” Skills to improve employee safety engagement, teamwork and create a happy working environment.This course is not suitable for those wishing to learn basic supervisory tasks or who do not believe safety is important.  It is for those who have already been supervising and want to learn some cutting edge techniques on how to engage their employees on safety.The program goes through how to use these skills in safety meetings and includes a Toolbox Meeting Template to help supervisors encourage better safety meeting performance.This engaging and activity based video course (with just around an hour of content) includes a workbook with activities, a toolbox talk template and a quiz.  It also provides additional training content to reinforce training via regular fortnightly emails.The course is structured into seven main topics:IntroductionThe Importance of SupervisorsA New Workplace Culture ModelHow to Connect Well with your Team9 Connect & Collaborate SkillsRunning a Great Toolbox MeetingUsing the Toolbox/Safety Meeting TemplateThis course is vital to supervisors who want to improve their ability to communicate and engage on safety matters, including making others more accountable for safety.  It is beneficial for companies and supervisors who want to change their safety culture or who realise that there must be a better way to encourage people to speak up and talk about safety in toolbox talks.  It will also create a workplace where workplace bullying will be a thing of the past.
