Helping safety practitioners find their voice

Safety practitioners have the technical training and know-how to ensure their companies can operate safely but, to be most effective they also need to be able to influence the senior management team and build consensus with the entire employee group.

By developing their soft skills, leadership skills, and potential, they improve their success in helping their employers operate safely. The Certificate in Safety Leadership will help participants cultivate this capacity through the enhancement of specific skills, knowledge, and abilities required to gain influence, build consensus, and successfully create positive change in the organizations where they work.
