Why Safety Leadership?


The primary goal of safety leadership is to enhance the safety climate and practices used on jobsites. Foremen and others in supervisory roles are responsible for making sure a company's safety policies, procedures, and practices are implemented on the jobsite. They will do this more effectively if they understand and practice critical leadership skills.
