The Safety Manager-as-a-Coach to Create a Culture of Safety

While safety management can help ensure compliance with chosen procedures, safety coaching is a great tool for generating commitment and improve your organization's safety culture.

Becoming a safety coach doesn’t mean that the safety manager moves into a full-time job as a professional coach. The idea of “safety manager as a coach” means one can switch between the roles of the safety manager and safety coach easily and effectively. One does not exclude the other. A person can have both safety management and safety coaching mindsets at the same time or can switch back and forth from moment to moment to get different perspectives, ask different questions or take different actions. Both are essential to generating comprehensive safety.
