Programme content

Management experts agree that leaders who demonstrate commitment to their team’s well-being inspire greater motivation and thus get teams to produce better work faster. In other words, paying
attention to safety makes you a better manager and leader. CEDEP’s innovative Leadership & Safety Culture programme helps managers from all sectors to rise to the many challenges involved in creating and sustaining a safety culture that really does lead to high performance.

The Leadership and Safety Culture Programme leads participants on a journey that rewires mindsets, unlocks the secrets to excellent safety performance and energises participants to lead with safety.

This programme will ensure your managers have the psychology, philosophy and thought leadership, as well as the practical tools to advance your organisation’s safety culture to evaluate and manage risks, develop human factors, and improve well-being.

Together participants will commit to improved safety in their organisations, establish safety goals, develop resources, ensure team participation, identify and assess hazards and prevent and control risks.
