Is safety culture driven from the top down or the bottom up? Having buy-in from leadership is important. What if leadership is already on board, but your employees still don't seem to get it? It's tempting to give up. Safety can be a tough sell, but to be successful health and safety professionals must be able to sell safety up and down the organization. Convincing leaders that safety is important is not enough. Everyone including front-line employees must understand the benefits of a safe operation and what's in it for them. Tactics used to sell safety to leadership are somewhat different than the tactics we use for front-line employees. Effectively selling safety has as much to do with leadership as actually selling. It has to do with creating an environment where employees are buying safety and not being sold safety. Attendees will learn three key factors to successfully sell safety to front-line employees.
