The Board's Role in Safety (BLC #988.1)
1-1/2 Skill Builder credits

Establishing a culture of safety is the first responsibility of an electric cooperative board. Together with the CEO, the board must continually and carefully provide oversight of safety performance to establish and maintain a culture of safety. Many boards are challenged to find the balance between positively influencing safety performance and becoming entrenched in cooperative operations. This course is designed to help distribution cooperative boards find that balance and to fulfil their safety oversight responsibilities.
Key Topics:
  • The role the board plays in overall safety of employees and the public.
  • Governance practices that ensure safety as a strategic priority.
  • The legal responsibilities of the board itself related to safety.
  • Key safety performance metrics to support safety improvement.
  • The board's influence on supporting and sustaining a positive safety culture.
