This online Leadership for Safety course is designed to offer a foundational understanding of the contemporary leadership principles required to begin the journey towards becoming an exceptional Safety Leader in the workplace.
This course is designed for employees who already have a basic knowledge of accepted workplace safety practices and principles (e.g., Identifying and assessing hazards associated with their tasks, understanding the personal protective equipment they are required to wear, etc.) and are looking to make a more significant impact in their workplace through safety leadership.
This course is not just for those employees currently working in the safety departments or for employees holding leadership positions in their organizations. All employees with a basic, entry level knowledge of safety in the workplace can use this program to improve their own safety and positively influence the overall safety culture in their workplace.
Important Note! This course differs from other safety leadership courses in that it focuses on how practical, contemporary leadership principles can be applied to safety in the workplace; as opposed to the typical safety leadership courses which only cover basic safety principles with the word ‘leadership’ arbitrarily added to the course title.
