Bob Kunz presented the CPWR Foundations for Safety Leadership (FSL) at the AGC MA OSHA 30 in March. The highly engaging discussion posed the question to attendess; "CAN WORKERS TELL WHEN THERE’S AN ALIGNMENT BETWEEN WHAT MANAGEMENT OR SUPERVISORS SAY ABOUT SAFETY AND WHAT IS ACTUALLY DONE ON THE JOBSITE?", they responded with a resounding yes. The use of Signage and Orientations (new employee and new worker to project) are key indicators in reaching safety goals.

What indicators do you utilize?


Everyone, from the company owner to the experienced foremen and new trainee/apprentice, need to own safety and be a Safety Leader. The Foundations for Safety Leadership (FSL) training module is designed to introduce construction workers, particularly those with supervisory responsibilities such as foremen, to safety leadership principles and give them the skills to be a safety leader who can help create and sustain safe and productive job-sites.
 
The first part of the Foundations for Safety Leaders introduces foremen/workers reasons why safety leadership is important and describes five safety leadership skills emphasized in the training. The remainder provides opportunities to work through real-world construction-based scenarios that allow students (foremen/supervisors) to think more about how to apply the safety leadership skills on the jobsite.
