Safety Leadership Assessment

The Four Primary Leadership Skills

Utilizing the Safety Leadership Assessment allows leaders to identify exactly what they need to work on and develop a plan for improvement that generates visible results. 

The assessment statements route to four broad categories called Domains, each of which is comprised of several more descriptive sections called Elements. Let's take a deeper dive into these core pieces that make up the Safety Leadership Assessment.

The four domains and their corresponding elements are:

1. Drive Accountability. The leader must clearly define safety expectations, train on what great looks like, measure performance to ensure accurate execution, provide feedback on what’s right and what needs to improve, and provide resources needed.

2. Create Connectivity. The leader must involve employees in identifying problems and creating solutions that work, share information so employees have what they need to work safely, and integrate safety into daily operations as the way of doing business.

3. Demonstrate Credible Consciousness. The leader must portray to others that he/she has the knowledge necessary to create a safe work environment, and the appropriate reasoning ability to make wise decisions the keep everyone safe.

4. Build Trust. The must interact with others in such a way as to be viewed as someone who sincerely cares about their employees safety, values safety as core to business excellence, and demonstrate openness to others in order to build an honest speak up/listen up culture.
