This course equips persons who have accountability for safety and health with the skills to lead and motivate teams, communicate information within and across organisations and to implement best practice safety & health improvement initiatives.
Continually improving safety in the workplace is an integral part of the role of Front-Line Supervisors, Team Leaders and Line Managers. Leadership skills are essential in order to encourage and support teams to perform at their best and to recognise and rectify safety and health risks in their workplace before accidents or incidents occur.
