Technical Session: No One Likes a Safety Cop
Monday, September 9, from 4:00pm – 5:00pm (Session ID: 46)

Steven Perkins will co-present a session titled, No One Likes a Safety Cop. One of the most potentially impactful roles of a safety leader, at any level within an organization, is the ability to coach and influence behavior change. However, talking to someone about their unsafe actions can be quite challenging. Despite our sincere efforts, we may end up playing the role of the “safety cop.” And no one likes a safety cop! This session will discuss why so many safety interventions fail, review some critical do’s and don’ts, and provide practical examples of how to have meaningful conversations with someone about their safety.
