Safety Leadership and Engagement - Facilitator : Dr. Wellesley Scott


																			Gain the self-confidence, knowledge and skills you need to recognize and assess your role in leading the implementation of an effective safety management system. This workshop is designed to provide leaders with a deeper understanding of their role in determining safety outcomes.  A Safety Leadership model is introduced that centers on changing the organization’s safety culture.  Organizations who are seeking a significant improvement in safety performance can become frustrated when traditional risk reduction approaches do not produce the desired results.
