Accident Caused by Failure to Secure


A trucker was only going 20 blocks with a load of
pipe. He was driving from the pipe manufacturing
plant to a specialty pipe coatings facility.
He wasnt going to take the load on the
highway.
There were unfortunately too few straps, no belly
wraps, no headache rack and... As unexpected
as you may think.another driver cut him off.
This is what is looked like!!!

Mo Tires Incident
"This is the first time in 75 years, and hopefully the last," said
Bill Wright, the Manager of Mo Tires, of the fatality.
"People make mistakes, and sometimes there is extreme
result of that," added Wright. "What we have to send a
message to workers to be on their toes, be careful, follow the
procedure, follow the rules. Nobody's exempt from having
something bad happen. A lot of times people take things for
granted, and a lot of us have to be more careful."

More than an attitude


Employers depend on their Safety Leadership to
execute and monitor the numerous regulatory
responsibilities that demonstrate an organization's
legally required due diligence.

It is essential that Safety Leadership is competent in


their ability to;
1.interpret and apply health and safety legislation.
2.correctly implement and manage the activities that
mitigate operational risk.

Roll out a new program?
Stop a co-worker who is working unsafely?
Reporting a unsafe condition to a less than sympathetic
employer?
Support a Supervisor dealing with a difficult worker?
Support senior management making a difficult decision?
Asking for capital money to fix a safety problem?
Dealing with a crisis or workplace fatality?
Asking for support to assess a risk that has not been
addressed before?
Support a work team who feels a work condition is unsafe?
Dealing with a regulator who has issued a stop work order?

Varying Leadership Style


Three factors that influence which leadership style to use:

1. The managers personal background: What personality,


knowledge, values, ethics, and experiences does the
manager have. What does he or she think will work?
2. Staff being supervised: Staff individuals with different
personalities and backgrounds; The leadership style
used will vary depending upon the individual staff and
what he or she will respond best to.
3. The organization: The traditions, values, philosophy,
and concerns of the organization influence how a
manager acts.

Question for each of you


What is your default leadership style?
Will this style always be the best style to
motivate the people to follow?

What does it mean to Lead?


The first problem with leadership is that many
people are confused about what it means and
what it is.

We wrongly think that


the leader is the person
who is on top. Doing
this absolutely denies
everyone else in the
organization the
opportunity to be a leader.
Safety Leadership 101

What does it mean to Lead?


Leadership is solving problems. The day your
workers or colleagues stop bringing you their
problems is the day you have stopped leading
them. They have either lost confidence that you can
help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a
failure of leadership.

Safety Leadership 101

Great Leaders:
1. Tell a compelling story about themselves: who
they are; what they stand for; and what they
expect.
2. Tell a compelling story about the organization;
why it is great place to work, invest in and buy
from.
3. Make people feel an essential part of the story
through the work they do every day.
Which reminds me of a story about a great leader JFK during the lead up
to the success of Apollo 11
