High Impact Observations

A High-Impact Observation is any conversation with an employee(s) initiated by a supervisor or manager in which exposure is observed, feedback is provided, and a two-way conversation is held to strengthen the use of best practices and understanding of exposures. Observations provide an opportunity to build stronger relationships between supervisors and employees, but require the supervisor to engage and inform, not simply instruct.

Course Objective
To develop a supervisor’s ability to recognize safe behaviors and communicate insights to employees in a way that reinforces engagement and build relationships.

Physical Hazard Identification

Area inspections may be standard procedures for supervisors, but how can inspections be leveraged to increase effectiveness? Science has taught us that by learning to analyze hazards as they interact with behaviors, safety leaders can turn routine inspections into opportunities for employee engagement. Changing the approach and process can change the output leading to leverage for future impact.

Course Objective
Leaders will learn how to leverage skills in Action Orientation as they apply to Physical Hazard Identification and exposure reduction.

Job Safety Briefing

A Job Safety Briefing is a series of interactions that focus on the specific safety requirements, instructions and exposures associated with a work task. By building on knowledge and experience gained in High-Impact Observations, safety leaders will develop skills to move from two-way coaching to leading a larger group. Utilizing a genuine approach, leaders can engage everyone in a conversation around safety as it relates to a specific task or subject.

Course Objective
To develop the supervisors’ ability to lead effective Job Safety Briefings that engage everyone involved.

Incident Investigation & Response

When an incident occurs, all employees watch to see how their leader responds. How a leader interacts with the affected employees and communicates to the team creates an atmosphere that impacts culture. When bad things happen, your credibility is on the line. All supervisors may have an obligation to investigate the incident, but maximizing the investigation can be an opportunity for positive change and to prevent recurrences.

Course Objective
Learn how to apply credibility skills to respond appropriately to incidents and conduct effective root cause analyses.
