Supervisors need to take a tough-caring leadership approach to safety. In other words, employers must insist their employees comply with safety policies and rules because they care about the welfare of the employee and not because it is the policy.

This course is designed to help supervisors gain a greater understanding of their responsibilities and obligations to provide physical resources and psychosocial support to ensure work areas are safe and healthful. This course emphasizes administering appropriate and effective accountability through the application of positive and negative consequences. Supervisors will also learn how to take advantage of "opportunities for safety leadership" on a daily basis.
