EHS on Tap: E20 The Role of Senior Management in Workplace Safety Culture

“Safety culture” is top priority for every safety manager these days, but how to shape a culture is a continual challenge. Most of the time, the focus is on the attitudes of managers and supervisors that work directly with workers and improving employee engagement, but a successful safety culture also requires the most senior leaders of an organization to provide effective safety leadership. But what does that leadership look like and what are the obstacles to achieving success?

On this episode of EHS on Tap, we discuss senior management’s role in creating a solid safety culture with Adam Levesque, a safety management consultant at MEMIC Workers Compensation Specialty Insurer.
