To maintain a world class QHSE system, the foundation is Excellence in Leadership in Occupational Health and Safety. I cannot over emphasize how vital this is to the entire Quality Management Program. I think it’s important to define a few terms.
The Dream of any OH&S Manager
Create and sustain a workplace where everyone is able to work hard and work productively. And, return home as healthy as when they came to work.
Production Safety Cycle
We have to recognize that production and Occupational Health and Safety occur in a cyclical nature. There is always a balance to be had between production and safety. This balance must be recognized, understood, and acted upon.
Our leadership teams MUST be engaged as department leaders and not supervisors or engineers. This sounds trivial and cliche, but when executed the results are truly astounding.
My challenge to you
Drive the much needed sense of leadership to create a culture of Excellence around Occupational Health and Safety. When your leadership team values themselves as leaders guarding the health and safety of their employees, so much more will follow and continue to improve.
