Coaching and Mentoring for Safety Professionals

Coaching and mentoring are processes that enable individuals to develop over time. They are useful when:

  • Personnel return from a developmental experience or instead of attending off-the-job development;
  • Creating and consolidating change;
  • Following up when someone hasn’t done what you’ve asked;
  • Working with a colleague who may be at odds with your approach;
  • Handling conflict between colleagues or between yourself and someone else.

As Safety Specialists usually do not have direct line authority when creating create change and requiring compliance, influencing techniques must be used. Coaching and mentoring are two of these influencing techniques to use to help achieve the integration of safety through organisations.

Strategic Safety Leadership for Executives and Directors


Giving safety equal weight with other business priorities is a basic strategy for safety and organisational excellence. In our experience, the integration of safety into general business operations, along with the  leadership executives and boards significantly determines the success of the safety commitment.

Evidence from past safety and environmental disasters suggest too that decisions taken at senior levels in the organisation have an impact on strategic safety performance.

There are many examples of situations where the board and senior leadership espouse the vision and values, only to find that they are not being practiced within the organisation.  Examples of misalignment of vision and values include Enron, and, more recently in Australia several large financial institutions have found practices within the business that are not consistent with their publicly stated corporate values.

Safety Culture Development works with Boards and Executive Leadership to ensure alignment of the board’s expectations with the business safety culture and culture more broadly.

This workshop is designed to help executive leadership and board members to:

  • Align company safety vision and operations.
  • Integrate safety with normal business operations
  • Understand the need to assess the safety implications of business decisions.
  • Understand the conditions and methods required for the implementation of a strong, effective and ongoing safety management effort within an organization
  • Ensure executives and directors understand the health and safety risks of the business and what is being done to minimise those risks
  • Satisfy themselves that operations are carried out with the same rigor as financial assessment and management is performed.

This workshop can be modularised and can also be run internally.
