WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: This webinar answers the questions; which areas are new safety managers most likely to make a mistake? What are the top priorities a new safety manager must accomplish in the first 180 days? How is a successful safety program measured?


Organizations who hire safety managers often expect those managers to hit the ground running and to have an immediate impact. This is especially true for organizations who are under pressure to improve their safety performance.

The challenge is that new safety managers have a learning curve when beginning a new job or assignment. Learning and mastering new regulations, programs, hazards and risks and at the same time building new relationships can be overwhelming. You can reduce that learning curve and have a quicker impact by avoiding some common mistakes. The most common mistakes involve typical safety tasks including training, investigations and recordkeeping. This webinar answers the questions; which areas are new safety managers most likely to make a mistake? What are the top priorities a new safety manager must accomplish in the first 180 days? How is a successful safety program measured?

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the challenges and common mistakes of a new safety manager in a leadership role.
  • Develop an understanding of company operations and how safety fits into the picture.
  • Establish working relationships with all levels of the organization.
  • Effectively communicate with and gain buy-in from senior management, middle management, line supervision, and employees regarding safety.
  • Develop relationships with professional safety associations and use their valuable resources.
