Safety leadership helps companies navigate through re-organisations, catastrophes, pandemics, major investments, mergers and acquisitions and so on. But sustainable safety performance can only be obtained when management practices a number of performance levers and establishes a strong safety culture.
According to Xavier Bontemps, there are a key number of competencies HSE professionals need to demonstrate early on in their careers and safety leadership training programmes are an essential element in building a safety culture and developing a coherent community of strong practices.
He discusses how the success of such training programmes requires a number of key factors. These include a training programme structured with various phases that correspond to a final strategy, deployed through workshops with practical tools and motivational language.
Safety leadership training programmes should also be highly visible, rely on contribution from senior leaders and build a pool of passionate HSE managers that grow their soft skills of mirroring and coaching. Xavier discusses how a sustainable safety culture can emerge from this type of training and offers some practical tips for every individual and safety leader in a company to collectively embed a safety culture.
