Safety Coaching

The Safety Coaching workshop utilizes either the Coaching TIPS²™ Model or the 8-Step Coaching Model to teach participants how to engage in essential coaching conversations about team and organizational expectations and protocols related to safety in the workplace. The tools, techniques, and resources presented give leaders and team members the skills and confidence to engage in productive dialogue about safety performance.

About Safety Coaching

A company’s long-term safety success depends on safety coaches, leaders and team members developing partnerships and having two-way coaching conversations; there is no better way to address vital workplace safety issues and expectations. The Safety Coaching workshop gives leaders and team members the skills they need to initiate strong coaching relationships and engage in productive dialogue about safety concerns, discernible changes needed in safety performance on the job, safety performance improvement, and the recognition of positive safety efforts. This workshop incorporates either the Coaching TIPS2TM Model or the Coaching Skills Model, both of which are grounded in ongoing research and give safety leadership a practical coaching process they can use for their other important safety initiatives. Safety coaches involved in this program improve their communication skills, strengthen team-member accountability for following safety protocols, gain a renewed focus on optimizing the results of safety programs, and develop practical coaching skills that will improve safety management and performance across the organization.

Objectives & Outcomes

In the Safety Coaching workshop, participants learn how to

  • Maximize safety performance by using a coaching process to initiate two-way communication.
