Immediate Safety impact

The greatest influencers of an organization’s culture are its leaders. It is their behaviours that create the conditions for high safety performance.

Our experiential program means that participants will leave with new safety coaching leadership skills and behaviours which they can implement immediately. Teams will see and appreciate the different way of leading and communicating within days.

Through working with our specialized facilitators, able to deliver in over 20 languages, leaders and managers will develop authentic coaching behaviours that embed sustainable safety performance and cultural change.


Coaching for Safety Performance teaches leaders a practical approach to develop safety culture and improve safety performance.


Transformational leadership skills

Leaders will understand how to build trust and create an environment of learning, caring and psychological safety through applying coaching skills. This will result in an increased quantity and quality of leadership interactions in safety.

Ownership for safety

Through a shift towards a human and people-centred approach and applying practical leadership skills that create impact, clear ownership and trust in the organization’s safety program emerge. Team members will align with business goals and vision, will increasingly notice, speak up and be empowered to take action.

Sustainable safety performance

Highly engaged and involved teams will actively participate in the design and implementation of the corporate safety program. Empowered by the new approach to leadership, team members jointly take responsibility for safe behaviour, the prevention of incidents and continuous learning to achieve excellent safety performance.

Enhanced organization culture

Employees and contractors will unite around the common themes of care, trust and collective participation in safety, which are the enablers for an organization to move towards an interdependent safety culture. Silos are broken down and the potential of the business for collaboration and taking shared responsibility for safety are unlocked.

This training really is one of the most well-thought-out training programs I’ve been involved with. It makes you think throughout, and in my opinion, will affect our performance in a positive way.
