Making Safety Your Business: Every Person. Every Action. Every Day. (#5205.1)

Regardless of your job title or how long you’ve worked at the co-op, safety is your business. This workshop goes beyond legal duties and regulatory compliance to examine how safety success can be achieved through purposeful design, practical actions and personal commitment. Participants will examine best practices for safety success, including using and communicating safety metrics, in relation to their co-op’s safety strategy. After exploring specific ways to get others involved in safety, participants will review their job role and the safety leadership opportunities they possess. Participants will leave with a personal commitment to make safety their business by demonstrating head-turning, impactful safety leadership action.

Learning objectives:
  • Describe the legal duties and responsibilities of all co-op leaders.
  • List the regulatory agencies that govern safety.
  • Explain elements of a leading practice safety system, including safety metrics.
  • Identify strengths and opportunities to improve your co-op’s safety system.
  • List ways to get everyone involved in safety.
  • Describe your role in your co-op’s approach to safety.
  • Declare one to three specific actions you will take to demonstrate noticeable safety leadership regardless of job title or tenure with the organization.
