...supervisors can be obstacles or valuable resources to safety improvement efforts.
The Woodlands, TX (PRWEB) December 16, 2014
ProAct Safety, a recognized pioneer of safety excellence strategies, announced its CEO, Terry L. Mathis, will lead two sessions at the upcoming American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) SeminarFest in Las Vegas, Nevada, on February 9 and 10, 2015.
Mathis said he chose the topic of “Re-Engineering Behavior-Based Safety” for this event because too many legacy approaches are full of waste, unfocused or misfocused, and are falling short of what we know works: always searching for ways to be more efficient and capturing and delivering value to the customers of the process. The seminar will include many ideas for updating and improving existing behavior-based safety programs that began as early as three decades ago, as well as provide critical information for those who are preparing to launch new programs.
“Training Supervisors to Become Safety Coaches” is a top priority for companies desiring high safety ratings, as supervisors can be obstacles or valuable resources to safety improvement efforts. Mathis’ seminar on this subject will teach practical coaching skills that can be passed on to supervisors, not only training them to help the workers they supervise become safer, but also to motivate supervisors and help them understand their critical role in safety and how it contributes to improvement in both performance and culture.
The seven-day continuing education and training event offers a rich selection of topics and networking opportunities for safety leaders and managers. Mathis and his colleague, ProAct Safety’s president Shawn M. Galloway, regularly pioneer safety culture and performance topics at this and other industry conferences, as well as through the company’s podcast, Safety Culture Excellence®.
