With Safety Programs-“People Skills" Make All the Difference

How do you change the attitude and behavior of nearly 1000 “set-in-their-way” construction workers?

Not just with a well written safety manual.

“People Skills” are the real answer.

Yes, safety rules and regulations must be clearly spelled out, but Safety programs are another opportunity of influencing how others think and act on the job.

The “People Skills” of those influencing the workers usually make the difference between success and failure. Your effectiveness in helping employees see that safety is essential will determine how safely they work

Who manages your safety program and do they have the “People Skills” to actually influence your workers attitudes and behaviors?
