Taking Safety from the Executive Office to the Frontline (WasteExpo 2019)

Every member of an organization fulfills a specific function, yet all are expected to be “responsible for safety.” But how each employee interprets that expectation is largely influenced by what they perceive is most important to their boss. This gives executives a particularly wide scope of influence and accountability, so it is critical that they demonstrate commitment to safety through both words and actions. But how does a leader do so? Hear from several safety experts how to create and sustain a culture of positive safety performance through leadership, communication, training and recognition. Find out how to “get personal” with your employees, by getting out of the office and into the trenches, how to keep someone that thinks they are already safe, even safer, and how to integrate these principles into their daily routines and performance cycles, because safety doesn’t just happen – it is built through trust, consistency and accountability.
