Mastery in Safety Culture and Leadership


6-Week Online Course Facilitated by Dan Newby, Human Relations Expert

Developing safety leadership skills across your organization is the foundation to create a positive safety culture, which is basically the set of enduring values and attitudes regarding safety issues, shared by every member of every level of an organization. It is possible to have a good safety culture without a formal safety  management system (SMS), but it is not possible to have an effective SMS without a good safety culture. Organizations need both SMS and a good safety culture to achieve high levels of safety performance.

This instructor-led online course is developed and facilitated by Dan Newby, Human Relations Expert. The asynchronous delivery approach will help you attend the course from anywhere, anytime. The course features several learning activities and you will have to complete them in sequential order and progress toward completion. All participants successfully completing this program will get a certificate of completion.
