Safety Manager Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Safety Manager in Fort Lauderdale:
"What I have learn."
Safety training is a good start for the beginning stages of safety, but in my experience they will only be aware of safety as long as a supervisor or trainer is near. I believe that for employee’s to get the most out of SAFETY we need to apply a safety CULTURE/BEHAVIOR to our employee’s and this start from the top of the company all the way down to the new employee's. There are a few things that I would implement. 1. To encourage and motivate its employee's to make safety and awareness their highest priorities. 2. Recognizing that 95% of all accidents are preventable and only usually occur following unsafe actions or a failure to follow established procedures. 3. Always setting targets for continuous improvement, with a goal of zero Unsafe Acts/Preventable Incidents. So what we want to hit on is encouragement, motivation, recognition, preventable, continuous improvement and goals.

Safety Manager in Redwood Falls:
"Stop Accidents and Injuries."
If you can figure out why accidents and injuries are happening and get upper management to listen and stop accidents and injuries you will be a success.

Safety Manager in Paris:
"Details."
It's all in the details, and treat others the way you would want to be treated. No better, no worse.

Safety Manager in Salt Lake City:
Training training training.. People assume you know the osha books by memory, you don't it's more than the bible. Study, don't ever stop.

Safety Manager in Myrtle Beach:
"Take knowledge and apply it to your everyday."
Training is key. Educate them and give them the tools necessary to achieve success while keeping themselves and everyone around them SAFE!! All accidents are preventable and it is better to train everyone even knowing there is a possibility of turnover rather than no training and they end up staying. It's worth every minute.

Safety Manager in Corpus Christi:
"Politics."
Get your support/authority in writing.

Safety Manager in Houston:
"The amount of babysitting you have to put up with from adult."
I am disappointed that today we baby sit more than we should. We should be leading and managing projects and manufacturing more than just safety. Safety was seen as a cost historically, but of late with the major incidents in the Gulf of Mexico, along the Gulf States and elsewhere, we should begin to be seen as an asset and needed.
