Engaging Employees in Safety Culture: Practical Ideas for Securing Buy-In to Drive Success

Live Webinar: Thursday, November 28, 2017

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn the critical foundations and elusive components for getting get buy-in from your employees to establish a positive safety culture in your workplace.

The business case has been made — a more engaged workforce is a higher-performing, safer workforce. Creating a trusting safety culture fosters the free flow of information and better working relationships, which in turn helps greatly improve safety in organizations.

Many organizations expend a lot of time and energy to create a world-class safety culture —including time spent on improving communication, sponsoring safety committees and providing leadership training— yet, their best intentions sometimes yield lackluster results.

Join us on November 28th when Joyce Schroeder of Culture Change Consultants will explain how to secure buy-in from your employees and give ownership for safety across all levels of your organization to set your workplace safety culture on a path to success. This webinar will offer a clearly differentiated approach to safety culture that moves beyond the traditional approaches to safety, and cover concepts and tools that help organizations get at the invisible components and foundations of safety culture they may otherwise be missing.

You’ll learn:

  • How to separate the visible from the invisible components of a safety culture (policies and procedures vs. norms, beliefs and assumptions)
  • The critical role of group norms in creating a strong, positive safety culture
  • Formal and informal ways to engage employees in assessing their safety culture
  • The dynamics of mistrust and its impact on safety performance
  • The value of a two-team structure, which creates ownership for safety at all levels of the organization
