Transformational Leadership in Safety

July 30th, 2014 · Comments

Safety leaders are regularly looking for ways to improve safety, or are they?  All too many leaders would settle for maintaining the status quo or managing to fail a little less this year than last.  It is not that they would not like to make a truly transformational improvement in safety.  They simply either don’t think it is possible or don’t have a plan to make it happen.

The beginning of a transformation in safety is to quit trying to control workers and start adding value to them.  Workers may sometimes be the problem but they are also the solution.  Helping workers perform more safely is different than controlling them.  The whole terminology of “safety controls” loses its effectiveness when it moves from conditional controls to behavioral controls.  

Transformation begins with winning hearts and minds over to safety excellence and providing the support to enable their efforts.  Safety becomes a life ambition and not a game that needs rules to keep people from cheating.  The hands and feet of workers only need to be controlled when their hearts and minds are not bought in and fully engaged in the safety effort.

Outsourcing Leadership Training

July 23rd, 2014 · Comments

Today’s economic realities have necessitated a great deal of outsourcing.  Organizations are clinging to their core competencies and value potential and hiring out peripheral tasks.  In safety, more and more of the training function is being outsourced.  This can be a good approach to some types of safety training but is definitely not for others.

Definite YES:  Skills training by technical experts is almost always more effective.   If the organization cannot justify keeping such an expert onboard full-time, outsourcing makes good sense and is often quite effective.

Definite NO:  Training that establishes official management style or organizational philosophy.  If you want your supervisors to coach safety or your leaders to stay on message about organizational mission and vision for safety, outside trainers are definitely not the way.  Specific skills such as coaching or communications can be taught by outsiders, but the deep-rooted organizationally-specific style training is best done by an insider with recognized ties to the organization and specific information to answer questions on strategy and tactics.

Maybe with Qualifications:  Training that is required for regulatory compliance can often be outsourced effectively.  The one nuance is that much of this type of training is very generic and may not be easily or directly applied by workers to their specific tasks.  Training that is too theoretical may lose its effectiveness if the link between the theory and workplace reality is not clear.
Outsourcing the right training and keeping the right training in-house can be a key to success in safety.
