Leadership for Safety Excellence

Leadership for Safety Excellence is intended for municipal supervisors who have the responsibility of directing the work of their crew or subcontractors. The course will help them understand their role and how to carry out key activities in contributing to an effective municipal health and safety management system. Recommended for managers, supervisors, foremen, lead hands, safety coordinators, and joint health and safety committee members. Includes classroom instruction, group discussions, practical exercises, videos, and an exam.

Content: The course consists of four separate modules, each 1/2 day in length:

  • Module 1, Supervisor’s Role - This module will help supervisors understand that they have a key role in the successful implementation of their municipal health and safety management system. Topics include where health and safety responsibilities fit, a supervisor’s safety related tasks, legislated responsibilities, and corporate culture. Also included will be a review of the OH&S Act, Regulation and Code as well as an exercise working with the legislation.
  • Module 2, Hazard Identification, Assessment and Control - Potential and actual hazards associated with all the work that is done must be identified and evaluated to determine the risk to workers. If the evaluation reveals that more must be done to protect workers, controls must be implemented. This module helps the supervisor understand his or her role and how to carry it out.
  • Module 3, Formal Workplace Inspections - This module will help the supervisor conduct effective work site inspections. Participants will learn the difference between hazard assessment and inspections, and then what to look for during the inspection, how to interpret what is seen, how to document findings and how to develop appropriate recommendations, and how to apply legislative minimum requirements. Also included will be a review of the OH&S Act, Regulation and Code as well as an exercise working with the legislation.
  • Module 4, Accident/Incident Investigations - The investigation of incidents by supervisors is an integral part of an effective health and safety management system. This module will teach supervisors when to do investigations and what steps to follow.
