Safety Leadership Coaching

When leaders don't lead, followers don't follow - how could they, they actually don't know where they are?

This is an all too common problem. Consider the following examples.

  • I was giving a keynote presentation at the Global HSE Conference in Delhi in 2013. At the Plenary Session there were half a dozen of India's top "leaders". They had that recognition as they were the "bosses" of the regions leading petrochemical companies. They each gave a fifteen minute presentation on the importance of leadership to how they run their operations. As a teacher and coach of Safety Leadership I was quite impressed with the words I heard - they were all saying the right things. Anyway, the session ended and they were guided off the podium. Morning tea immediately followed their session. Guess how many of this key group remained? Only one! The other five all did a "runner". In other words, they were no-where to be seen. For the rest of that day all you could hear people talking about were words to the effect of, "that session was all fluff, safety was not even important enough for them to stay for a cup of tea, let alone listen to any of the speakers". Words are one thing (and a very important one thing they are), yet deeds are even more powerful and resonating.
  • Only in the last couple of weeks I was asked to give a brief presentation to a safety working group on the impacts of fatigue on decision making within a large mining operation. Anyway we had a dozen or so bods around the table, and the session went very well. Quite interactive, a few laughs, so I was comfortable with what we had initially achieved. Following my bit, there was another session on updated methods of detecting drug use within operations (an increasing problem). As it happens one of the two senior leaders in that room just packed up their papers, stood up, and left the room. What do you think the impact of that decision might have been? Let me tell you that a number of people have since told me that they do not believe the senior leadership are committed to the program - lip service (words) only. What are they basing that decision on. The observation that one of their senior leaders had better things to do, than participate in the safety working group process (and the business  says "safety is our No 1 priority"). It would have actually been better if that particular senior leader had not turned up at all. Being "invisible" is arguably a bit better than actually being seen to be "dismissive".

In both of these examples (and I could offer many more) not only have opportunities been lost, damage has been done. Yes, the safety culture within any business is significantly influenced by the decisions AND the behaviours of the leaders within the business - at all levels. Poor behavioural decision making at a supervisory level shall negatively influence their followers, just as the oil company leaders above influence their own followers.

The Safety Leadership Coaching Service offered by TransformationalSafety.Com is amongst the most powerful developmental services available. Based upon the international recognized Transformational Safety Leadership (TSL) framework it equips graduates with the ability to recognize, formulate, and implement safety coaching approaches aligned to the specific needs of their followers. It has been shown that efficient application of safety coaching within a workforce can lead to up to a 55% reduction in workplace accidents in the first year. It is the addition of the "transformational" competencies to the coaching model that optimizes the sustainability of any gains made.

SkypeTSTransformationalSafety.Com supports SAFE-T-COACH's throughout the world. We do this by leveraging the power of Skype. Here is what one SAFE-T-COACH graduate said after participating in the Safety Leadership coaching program over twelve months.

  • ".....This has been the best year of my working life. I have always wondered why it is so hard to get people to do what they need to do to keep themselves and the rest of us safe. At times I have just felt like giving up. Learning how to be a SAFE-T-COACH has been a highlight of my career. Being able to talk through how to make it all happen with David, after the initial training was priceless. Using Skype meant we could schedule our coaching sessions when it was convenient. He understood and offered very real ideas. I have found that I even am dealing with my kids better. SAFE-T-COACH has been a win-win for everyone....."

I sincerely thank Eric for his very kind words. It is when I see comments like that I know why we do what we do.

Thirty two years since Bhopal, thirty years since Chernobyl, twenty eight since Piper Alpha and what have we learned? 

Not much. After all, we have seen Texas City, Macondo, the Soma mine collapse, the Lac-Mégantic rail disaster, and the list just goes on - all in the last ten years or so. Clearly what we have been doing has not been working. 


The time has come to take some real responsibility, and put some science back into safety. The time has come to transform your safety culture. The cost of not doing anything shall be further death and injury.
