Talking Safety

Leadership with a safety message that engages,  informs and inspires as workplaces deal with the health and employee safety and security in a global pandemic. 

The coronavirus continues across the globe. Some have returned to the workplace, some continue to work from home and some maintain a hybrid of both.  As organisations endeavour to keep the workplace and its practices safe – how will Managers and Supervisors cope with managing functions and leading safety?

Safety Conversations that influence behaviours will make the difference.  New practices will need to be communicated and maintained by leaders and managers such that all work safe and all feel safe. The anxiety that there has been in many has been kept under control as they furloughed or worked in their lockdown home offices. That anxiety will return as they set foot on a renewed commute into a workplace that may be somewhat different in its practices and attitudes.

The gofastforward team have worked in safety leadership across the globe and real safety excellence requires a daily commitment to  being alert, recognising risk and constructive conversation.  In doing so, we build a confidence in people and teams.

How will people respond in the workplace when their ‘space’ is invaded by another? What conflicts will arise when the Laissez Faire person meets the Anxious colleague? How will new safety measures effect Teamwork?

Leaders will have to rise up to this new safety challenge.
