Are your supervisors ready?
The Occupational Health & Safety Act OHSA defines a supervisor as anyone who "has charge of a workplace or authority over a worker,” whether it be a permanent or temporary assignment.
Supervisors are critical to the day-to-day success of your safety-based initiatives, and that’s why many organizations have made it a top priority to ensure that their supervisors have a clear understanding of their safety responsibilities, the necessary tools (including management support) to be successful, and the needed training for superior performance. Now is the time to get your supervisors in tip-top shape for meeting their responsibilities under your established safety program.
Safety programs flounder when supervisors are not fully onboard with your company’s safety program, committed to ensuring its success, or properly trained on how to carry out their obligations.
