What do HSE Leaders do?

Graham Marshall - Saturday, July 02, 2011
As a leader, the quality of your leadership is reflected across your organization in perceptions held about your own safety behaviours.

Positive leadership for HSE is shown through a demonstrated commitment to the goal of zero harm.  That translates as a business with no fatalities and no lost time injuries.

To achieve zero harm, business leaders must accomplish the following outcomes:

1.  Always understand and be able to communicate about HSE risks in your organization;

2.  Lead by your example - demonstrate safety behaviours at all times;

3.  Motivate others around you to demonstrate acceptable safety behaviours;

4.  Coach and develop the positive HSE behaviours you wish to see;

5.  Ensure their are negative and unwanted consequences for those individuals in your organization who fail to demonstrate acceptable safety behaviours;

6.  Intervene when behavioural standards influencing HSE outcomes slip below what you find acceptable; and

7.  Hold individuals - including yourself -  accountable for the HSE performance of your organization.
