Webinar- The Safety Side Effect: How Supervisors Coincidentally Improve Safety

May 18, 2021 | 10:00 am — 11:00 am


Why is it that those supervisors whose safety records are the best also usually perform better across the board? They have better productivity, lower employee turnover, and higher team morale. It turns out that good supervisors create what we call the “safety side effect.” Operational safety is a natural by-product of a certain supervisory style that enhances supervisor-subordinate relationships and general employee competency. Employees who work for these kinds of leaders are more likely to talk with each other about safety, more likely to stop others when they see something unsafe,
and also more open to being stopped when acting unsafely.
This talk centers around the findings of a large-scale, international study of supervisory practices called “The Best Boss” study indicates a set of practices that produce the “safety side effect.” While the study identified 20 specific supervisory characteristics that lead to the “safety side effect,” the top four critical characteristics are discussed in this presentation.
